An experienced polo player, Tariq Al Habtoor knows how challenging, absorbing and enriching the sport can be – as well as how quickly new players tend to develop a lifelong love and attraction to the sport once they pick it up.
As Tariq Al Habtoor knows, polo has a great deal of appeal due to its many and wide-ranging benefits, including:
- Physical exercise and skills-building. Managing the direction and speed of a horse while competing for position against other players has the potential to improve your hand-eye coordination, posture, upper body strength and more.
- The “chess-match” aspect. Polo is fast paced and requires a good deal of strategy to be successful – an intellectual challenge that provides one of the sport’s major draws.
- Improved riding ability. As a polo player, you get the opportunity to ride and control a variety of horses – something that helps improve your riding ability as well as your ability to adapt to different styles, gaits and so on.
