Polo is often dubbed the ‘sport of kings’ owing to its popularity among the English aristocracy. With a history spanning over two millennia, it has ingrained itself as a cornerstone of the country’s culture and heritage. When thinking of polo, images of lush country estates, prestigious tournaments, and remarkable equestrian skill often come to mind. Yet, beyond its glamour, polo embodies values intrinsic to England’s rich legacy—camaraderie, sportsmanship, chivalry, and nobility. Today, polo thrives as a staple of English culture, with an abundance of clubs and events celebrating the sport across the nation.
