1. Where are you located this summer? 

Santi: Sheridan, Wyoming. This is my first full summer and it’s a really nice place. I love it.

Mariano: Santa Barbara, CA playing for the Santa Barbara Polo Club.


2. Where do you travel next?

Santi: After Wyoming, I will probably go to Texas to visit my girlfriend before coming back to Tryon, NC to play in Gladiator again.

Mariano: Aiken, SC then to Argentina for a month and then Wellington, FL in December for the winter.


3. What are you doing when you’re not playing polo?

Santi: There is so much to do. I play golf, go trail riding, fishing, eating a lot of barbecue and  camping in the mountains.

Mariano: We go to the zoo with my daughter and we like to go to the beach to hang out.


4. What was your favorite thing about playing at Tryon?

Santi: The set up is amazing. I like the bigger arena and it was really fun. It was also cool that there were so many people who came up to get their posters signed.

Mariano: The packed stadium. It was the biggest crowd I’ve ever played for!


5. What are you looking forward to most for your next Gladiator Polo match?

Santi: I am so excited to come back. I hope we have the same crowd as we did last time. They were great.

Mariano: Another big crowd and lots of fans!


6. What else would you like to do while in Tryon, NC?

Santi: I would love to try the Cleghorn Gun Club and the pool next time. All of that fun stuff.

Mariano: I want to check out the Cleghorn Gun Club.


 7. Why did you take this photo while at TIEC?

Santi: This photo was the first time I saw the ring. I was so amazed and very excited that that’s where we were going to play!
