Women were formally introduced to Polo in the 1950s, although their presence began earlier, when they accompanied relatives or had a relationship with male players, thus encouraging them to play.
Female polo players add power and passion to the game in different ways from the men’s game. Each year they play with better saddles, adding professionalism to the game. In 2010, the AAP women’s handicap was legalized, and the Women’s Subcommittee was created to evaluate and assign the corresponding valuation to each one.
But women not only participate as players in the field, but their presence has extended to the rest of the fields related to Polo, such as veterinarians, horse trainers, breeders and groomers.
This way, little at a time, women have become more and more present in this sport full of passion, and every year more and more girls join, in pursuit of reaching the professional level.
