I have never been to a polo match, what can I expect? Incredible action. One of the world’s oldest games is also one of its fastest. Balls can travel up to 110 mph. Horses gallop and cut at 30mph. Player and horse work in partnership to get a ball through a goal, while using every possible strategy to prevent the opposing side from doing so. What happens on that quest is both brutish and beautiful.
