The Petisero: the Horse Worker
Being a polo horse worker – or petisero, as they are known in Argentina – it’s a job like no other.
It takes a lot of hours and hard work, starting very early in the morning and ending in the evening hours. The petisero is the link between the horse and the rider. He is the one in charge of checking the horse’s physical and emotional state. He also works with the veterinarian sometimes, since he is the one that knows the horse and keeps track of it.
