An appreciation of polo is truly timeless: the game was first played in the kingdom of Persia, which we know now as Iran. The fast pace and sheer athleticism of the sport made it an ideal training exercise for soldiers, who would often fight battles from horseback.

American polo has truly come into its own over the past few decades, with a 32-team professional league thrilling fans across the nation.
