Polo Horses and Workmanship
The workmanship of the horse is, precisely, what makes them stop being ordinaries horses to become polo horses.
The animal has already been raised with the best possible genetics, it has been tamed and tamed, and it is time to prepare it so that one day it can go out on the field and express its full potential.
The horse begins to be known. There are more precocious or less precocious horses, more or less intelligent. There you begin to see the meekness, temperament, conditions of the animal. The objective is that the animal gallops forward and that it loses its fear of the taco and the ball.
The horses begin to have polo practices, on small courts, two against two.
It is only when the horse is around five and a half years old that it begins to play its first matches and tournaments.
The makers are those who, little by little, with a lot of hand and subtlety, put the animal in the various circumstances to which polo can expose them.
Turns, short pikes, long runs, hard braking and exits to the other side. Little by little the requirement is increasing, correcting errors, working on the psychology and physical capacity of the polo horse.
It´s not an easy job, but, the harder you work, the better results you obtain.
