Ancient Horseback Sport
Victoria's famed Rutherglen wine region is playing host to All Saints Estate Polo, the final event in the Victorian Polo Club calendar, on Saturday 14th April between 11 AM and 5 PM.
Polo has been around for centuries and is one of the fastest and most physically demanding of all sports.
This is a fabulous opportunity for visitors to experience world-class polo while enjoying some of the State's very best food & wine. The day will feature two exciting games of polo and a Royal Salute Divot Stomp, where guests have the opportunity to get hands-on and repair the playing field surface between matches.
The All Saints Estate event is the final for the current Victorian polo season.
If you haven't seen it before, you won't want to miss this opportunity to get up close & personal with this exciting, fast-paced horseback sport. While its exact origins are unknown, it's thought to have been around since as long ago as the 6th Century BC and has been used extensively in the training of cavalry forces.
