If we believed that vanity was a matter for other disciplines, we have to say that in polo, physical appearance is also prioritized over protection. According to a survey conducted in 2016, it was found that about 50% of polo players place more importance on how they look during a game than on their safety. Still, the Hurlingham Polo Association (HPA) is constantly working to maximize the standards of the protective elements that players must use for their care.
It is no secret to anyone that polo is a high-risk sport. If you still doubt that, imagine a blow at 60 km / h on the back of a horse; Even so, it was one of the equestrian disciplines that took the longest to regularize the protection standards to guarantee the well-being of the players, as a consequence there were countless accidents where several even claimed the lives of several polo players.
In search of unifying the parameters of care at an international level, since 2018 all polo players in the United Kingdom and those belonging to polo associations internationally affiliated to the HPA, must wear helmets certified by this governing body. There are a total of 28 countries around the world that share this same regulation, remember that to play in a tournament endorsed by the HPA you must use implements that meet the parameters that the organization stipulates.
