The Sport of Horse Polo: History and Tips The sport of polo originated centuries ago as a training exercise for military men. From there it evolved and moved from Persia to the British Commonwealth, and finally became a worldwide fascination. Today, the game is probably most popular in Argentina. As for the sport itself, polo requires players to be excellent riders, as the entire game is played on horseback. It’s also important for participants to remain cool and collected, as games can get pretty intense. This isn’t the kind of game you can pick up in an afternoon, so if you want to try polo expect to practice. In this video, WatchMojo.com heads to Polo Parc Farms to learn more about the sport of polo.
