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.
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.
