About Iridike Polo

Our Story

The name Iridike comes from the name of a very dear horse owned by Luciano’s wife, Marina. This beautiful horse is today competing all over Spain in show jumping competition! Together with his wife, Luciano has funded the company and brand Iridike. At first, their small business was dedicated to leather goods manufactured in Uruguay as well as trading business of polo ponies. Later on they decided to fund a polo school where people from any age and any level could learn how to play this beautiful sport.

As the brand needed to be known, Marina and Luciano travelled accross Europe to expose it to the Equestrian World. During these years, they travelled and pqrticipated to all equestrian fairs. They closed this Tour with an exclusive collaboration with Santa Maria Polo Club in Sotogrande, one of the lost famour club in the world.

Luciano then noticed the growing interest for the sport of polo, this is how it all started. He took a turn and decided to create his own club. Iridike Polo was born.
