Gonzalo Quesada, Ambassador of the POLO RIDER CUP, comments: “Last year, I was very impressed to see the number of teams participating in the first edition of the POLO RIDER CUP. This year with the number of clubs, the quality of the players involved, and the countries represented, it is unbelievable how the tournament has grown in only one year. I think that the POLO RIDER CUP will be one of the most important tournaments in the polo season.”
