  • To end 2019 on a high note, La Patrona Polo & Equestrian will welcome lovers of the “Sport of Kings” to a passionate, adrenaline-filled event with a splash of rhythm, flavor, and beauty.

The VIII Riviera Nayarit Polo Cup, the most important equestrian event of the Pacific coast, is set to welcome lovers of the sport and its lifestyle for a fun, exciting weekend from December 13-15.

The “Sport of Kings” will be played at La Patrona Polo & Equestrian Club, considered one of the most beautiful and functional clubs in all of Mexico, with the participation of 25 national and international players against the magnificent landscape of the tropical jungle in San Francisco, Nayarit.

Activities accompanying the competition—organized by Top Sports—include a culinary experience featuring the gastronomy of the La Patrona Polo & Equestrian Club and the talent of high-end mixologists who will share their exclusive creations with attendees.

Fashion will also be a part of the mix with the Polo Fashion Show that will showcase Mexican designers and the country’s latest trends.
