Pole and a puzzle for you!

The pole is a pretty violent sport for the horse. It originated in England (the Prince of Wales, son of Queen Elizabeth, loves to play polo), but it is very common in Argentina, which creates excellent animals for that sport.


It is played with a polo ball, a long putter and two teams. Mounted on horseback, players must take the ball to your opponent's goal.There are clubs in Brazil dedicated to the pole. Because it requires a lot of animal, each player must have more than one horse in reserve for the same game in order to change the animal if you think your mount is very tired.
