About Iridike Polo

Our Story

El nombre Iridike proviene del nombre de un caballo propiedad de la esposa de Luciano, Marina. Juntos fundaron la empresa y una marca dedicada a la marroquinería fabricada en Uruguay y a la venta o alquiler de caballos de polo. Además, fundaron una escuela de polo para principiantes que quieran aprender este maravilloso deporte.

Luciano y Marina recorrieron Europa llevando su marca a los torneos más prestigiosos del continente, haciendo que la marca sea conocida y respetada. Iridike, como equipo, ha participado en muchos de los torneos organizados por Santa Maria Polo Club en Sotogrande, uno de los clubes de polo más reconocidos del mundo.

En respuesta al creciente interés en iniciarse en este deporte, los profesionales Luciano Irazábal y su socio, Nano Iturrioz crearon Iridike Polo, un espacio  totalmente dedicado al lado ecuestre, tanto a clases de polo como paquetes de vacaciones de polo para todos los niveles, así como torneos de polo de playa y pasto. También organizamos paseos a caballo.

About Luciano Irazabal

From his young age, Luciano has always been passionate about horses. He studies vet at the University of Montevideo and in 1999 had the opportinuty to travel to Europe for work.

In 2000, Luciano traveled to England to train Mark Keegan’s horses who had a polo breeding program. With Mark, Luciano started travel to Irlande to buy more English thoroughbreds that he could bring to Spain and train in the winter.

Luciano then decided to import horses from Uruguay, initially by ship and then by plane to sell and hire them to clients from all over the world, who came to Sotogrande looking for horses to play with.

In 2006 Luciano started his own project with his cousin. They are the founders of PONY DEL SOL, a company which trains and prepares horses from Uruguay to go play in the UK.

In 2007, in Inglesham Polo Club 47 of their horses were auctioned and in 2008 in Fifield Polo Club 30 were sold.

In Sotogrande

After these successful years in the North of Europe, Luciano moved to Sotogrande where he took the head of a polo school.

Today he is the founded and owner of Iridike Polo Club and decided his activities to polo school and polo holidays.
