One of the world’s most ancient sports, polo is played on horseback. The game involves two teams of four players each, with every player given a specific number and role on the field. Designated player one serves as the primary goal scorer. While player two also scores, he or she defends more than player one. Typically, player three operates as the team captain and develops game strategies. Meanwhile, player four assumes the primary defensive position on the field. Each player receives a variable handicap of minus two to 10 goals.
