������������ Polo originated in Asia more than 2,000 years ago. It may have descended from buzkashi – the national sport of Afghanistan, a rough-and-tumble horseback sport. Some believe that the son of the last Persian emperor introduced polo to China around 670 B.C. The name of the game may well come from the word “pholo” meaning ‘ball’ or ‘ballgame’ in the Balti laguage of Tibet According to scholars, including the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., the game traveled along the “Silk Road” from China to the rest of the world. “Let other people play other things – the king of game is still the game of kings”. This verse is inscribed on a stone tablet at a polo ground north of Kashmir near this fabled trade route.
English and Irish engineers introduced the game to Argentina, where the ﬁrst ofﬁcial game was held in 1875. The United States Polo Association was established in 1890 to coordinate games, standardize rules and establish handicaps. Polo is now played around the world in over 75 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. In 1998, the Federation of International Polo was established.
The modern sport of polo had its beginnings in the 1860s in Punjab, India, when British ofﬁcers took up the game of polo that they had seen played by local horsemen. The game was introduced in England in 1869 and in America by 1876.

The Number One position requires a player with the accuracy and conﬁdence to score. This is his offensive job. He must have fast, steady horses in order to beat the opposing Number Four to the ball and stroke it into the goal. He must be optimistic and anticipate the forward passes, as well as know when to cover the Number Four, timing his ride-offs so his teammates can come through with the ball.
This player is often called the “sparkplug” of the team. As an attacker, he is the most aggressive offensive player on the team. He must have fast and ﬁt horses and think quickly in order to set up the scoring opportunities.Communication with his Number Three is important; the two of them are the driving force behind the plays. The Number Two marks the opposing Number Three and keeps him from turning the ball.
The quarterback of the team and the most versatile, this offensive and defensive player must act quickly, yet with a cool head, always thinking a play ahead. As a play maker, his responsibilities are to turn the opponent’s attack around and direct his team’s offensive drive with well placed passes. The Number Three accepts the ride offs so his horse should be strong, stop easily, and rein well. The Number Three is usually the ﬁeld captain as far as team strategy goes.
As back, this position requires a deliberate approach, yet leaves no margin for error. He must play his position and keep himself between the goal and the attacking Number One. The Number Four should always back the ball at an angle so his teammates can more easily pick it up. This is often called the “thinking man’s position”. He and his horses should be strong and steady.

FOR YOUR SAFETY:
The Rules Two mounted umpires patrol the game as close to the action as possible, penalizing players for moves that create dangerous situations for horse or player. A third ofﬁcial, the referee or “thirdman”, watches from the sidelines to make the call if the two umpires are in disagreement. Most of the rules in polo center on the concept of the “line of the ball”, the imaginary line created by the path of the ball. This line corresponds to the centerline of the road, with lanes on either side for opposing players. A player may not cross this line without ﬁrst riding off or bumping the opponent to the other side. The “line” exists to allow a horse and rider to gallop at high speeds after the ball without meeting another moving player head on or running into another crossing his path.
