Polo & More Magazine
Polo & More is a luxury polo publication that came to life in 2006, its aim is to promote and showcase the 'Sport of Kings' and the glamorous lifestyle surrounding it. The game is played on grass, snow, sand and even on the backs of elephants and camels in some countries. It is our mission at Polo & More to bring every exciting detail, from the our corners of the polo world to our readers.
