    Snow Polo St. Moritz welcomes Six teams with players from nine countries

    Six instead of four teams of the highest calibre will compete in the world’s most exclusive high-goal polo tournament on snow for the first time. The players, such as snow polo pros Valentin Novillo Astrada (ARG), Max Charlton (UK), Robert Strom (FRA) and local star Tito Gaudenzi (CH), together with other polo stars combine to make up to nine nationalities.

    2019 tournament winner Melissa Ganzi from the USA, alongside her son Grant will compete on the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel team for one of the most prestigious trophies in polo sport.

    Unique horseshoes for the main superstars of the tournament

    Around 120 polo ponies arrived from around Europe a couple of weeks before the event, giving them time to adapt to the high altitude and get acquainted with the snow. For that reason, they started with walks at first, moving on to gentle training sessions. The ponies also got special horseshoes that have rubber tubing to funnel the snow out of the back of the shoe and studs to add traction, making sure the ponies have a perfect grip during the matches on the hard-pressed snow.
