Polo is a team game that originated in ancient Persia. It is played on horseback, and is older than any known written history. Often travelling at over 30 miles per hour, riders use a mallet to hit a ball through goal posts to score. The team with the most goals at the end of the match wins.

Speed and Safety

An incredibly fast game, polo requires a vigilant officiating team that includes a referee, an umpire with line officials, scorekeepers and timekeepers. Pretty much every rule in this sport pertains to the safety of the riders and the horses and it is critical that the officials are well trained as riders as well as knowing the rules of the game.
