More about us
Leonardo Rossolini was working at a bank in Buenos Aires when one day he decided he wanted to start a job that involved horses. Firstly he worked in the horse racing business and after he won his first race, he got introduced to polo by a friend. He started Palo Alto Polo Club in 2004 after a steep learning curve at La Aguada Polo Club in Open Door. What started with mostly local guests later grew into a well known club bringing people from all over the world to Argentina to play or try polo. Playing of a handicap of 2, Leo has experience playing all over the world as well as teaching at several schools world wide. His charismatic personality and clear passion for polo make him a real polo enthusiast.
Emily Hordijk was introduced to polo by her family at home in the Netherlands. After her master studies she decided that as a long held dream she wanted to have a go at polo. What started off as just three weeks ended up with her starting as the new Marketing and Sales manager for Palo Alto Polo Club. Loaded with creativity she loves designing new strategies and materials to introduce more people to polo. She enjoys explaining polo as well as teaching people about horses and their behaviour. In top of that Emily helps guests to understand the pains in their body and gives instruction how to stretch after.
We look forward to help you plan your polo holiday! Please do contact us with your plans!
Summer 2015 the Palo Alto Polo Club team was able to help the Central New York Polo Club look for new polo players. After carefully designing a strategy the team was able to give 148 lessons in two months. Emily and Leo are very proud of the results and the fact that the Summer academy is still continuing in 2016. See the video below for an impression of the academy in 2015.
