What a wonderful place you have. Everything was amazing. The riding, the accommodation, the food, and most of all the people’s hospitality.
My play has improved greatly and my spirits have elevated as well. I look forward to seeing you in Atlanta in April and back at La Mariposa soon. Sincerely.

La Mariposa ….. a slice of polo heaven !!! So serene and beautiful. The horses were the best teachers I’ve had next to Mariano of course. Definitely expect to see myself and many of my club members back here soon. The polo and the hospitality were exceptional.
Thank you all for a tremendous experience.

This has been a fantastic vacation ! You and your family are so welcoming, it feels like home.
Seven days is really too short a visit and I will have to stay a little bit longer next time.
I will look forward to seeing you in Atlanta.

Please tell Sr. Lopez I will be back to see him soon !!!!!!

Mariano, I want to extend my sincere gratitude for a truly marvelous week. I learned a great deal thanks to your daily coaching during practice and games. I am anxious to begin practicing here at home to ensure everything you taught me incorporates into my game back home. I will be a different player when you next see me.

Please give my thanks to your associates that worked so hard on our behalf: Most importantly, to the grooms that were incredibly professional from tacking the horses, to patiently playing with us – individually encouraging us and coaching, along with you. And, ensuring our comfort off the field, the ladies that cleaned our rooms and also did a beautiful job on laundry, as well as those that prepared the fabulous meals we thoroughly enjoyed. Each member of your team did their job very, very well.

To you and the entire La Mariposa staff, no request was overlooked or denied, and each and every one of you went the extra mile to ensure we were always learning, properly challenged and completely comfortable, while having a great time. I received everything I hoped for – and so much more. As you would say, “Amazing”!

Until next time,

My stay this year was every bit as fantastic as last year. Your team (Grooms/Players, Housekeepers/Servers, Maintenance Men, etc…) did an outstanding job. Make sure you and Buba congratulate one another for a job well done. La Mariposa is a jewel in the Pampas. The estancia is quite charming and well maintained. The experience is unique and not mainstream, a true Argentinean Polo Experience. The improvements each year make the property value added.

I thoroughly enjoyed the polo, although my play could have been better but that’s another story. Miguel, Martin, Gaston and the others are great upcoming players. I look forward to coming down to the “Jewel in the Pampas” next year. However I plan on getting in a little riding before the trip next time.

Also, please include the Pink House on your web site as a tourist attraction.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the La Mariposa Family!

Mariano: I want to start by thanking you, personally, for making my time at La Mariposa so rewarding and memorable. Your skill at showing me what I need to do (and not do) to be a better player was equaled by your calm approach as well as your sense of humor. Truly, thank you for my 10 days of hard work…and for the seven pounds I gained eating those great meals. They should e gone in a few weeks.

A note to those looking for comments about La Mariposa: I’m confident you won’t find a better place to perfect your game than at La Mariposa. You won’t find a better teacher than Mariano and you won’t find nicer and more helpful support than that of the team of grooms who not only have horses, tack and equipment waiting for everyone for each session on the field but fill the ranks of players when needed for afternoon game practice. Everyone has a clear understanding of how to keep the game competitive for the “students” on the field, the importance of being intense when necessary but also to have fun.

Be prepared to eat well. The food is excellent, and the domestic staff clearly is having so much fun, it’s impossible not to smile whenever they’re around.

If you’re serious about working on your polo skills but want to have a ball doing it, you really have to park yourself at La Mariposa for a 10-day session. You won’t believe the experience you’re going to have.

Mariano, I just found your business card and had to write to say THANK YOU so much for your help with my swing while you were here in Atlanta. I have to admit after we worked together at Chukkar Farm, I couldn't hit the broad side of the barn much less a polo ball! My mind kept telling me what to do but my body couldn't get it right for a day or so. Then all at once, it clicked! I am now able to hit the ball consistently and it actually goes pretty far! I no longer have pain in the elbow or wrist due to improper technique and I owe it all to you! My confidence in the game has increased and I was even able to score two goals in yesterdays game. Thank you so very much! I look forward to seeing you again when you come through town and if you ever need a place to stay, we have plenty of room to house you here at our home. (suburbs, no horses unfortunately!) I hope things are going well for you in Europe and that you are playing great!
Sincerely, Tina Yeargin P.S. What is the name of the polish you used on my boots? They had never looked better and I cannot duplicate what you did!

"My vacation at La Mariposa was one of the most relaxing, yet invigorating vacations I have ever experienced. Once arriving at the farm, we were welcomed and treated like one of the family. The polo experience was simply awesome, from the instruction, to the well trained polo horses, to the fields, and the well prepared staff. My confidence greatly improved and I am now so hooked on the sport of polo that I plan on making this trip a yearly one. Truly one of the best vacations I have ever had".

This is a first class facility that is directed by a person who is eager to make things perfect, pleasant and very comfortable for his guests. The facility is everything you read on this site and more. You do not have to worry about anything at all from the minute you wake up in the am until the end of your day. You will; guaranteed, improve your game, eat superb food, make new friends, sleep well, and above all, have a great time. This applies to someone who has no riding experience but is willing to hop on a fine and well trained horse for a simple walk in the country and yes, soon enough, catch the bug of the king of sports. Time goes by quick when you are here, that is the only problem!

We can't rave enough about the fantastic time we had with Mariano and his family. The polo was a remarkable learning experience and highly rewarding. The horses, the instruction and the games far exceeded my expectations. Off the field, the food was incredible, Mariano's family and the other guests were very friendly and the time spent around the table talking and singing in the evening is one of the most memorable holiday experiences I have had. If you have a family, polo players or not, they too will have a great time. We are already planning our next trip.

“The attention to detail at La Mariposa is beyond expectations. While visitors come in a wide range of experience and interests, each guest’s training is personally tailored to recognize the greatest results. Riding skills, playing, strategy – no element of the game is overlooked. The ponies brought a new level of confidence to my game and Mariano’s patience, kindness, and undeniable skills brought my playing to a level I was unaware I could achieve.

When not on the pitch, the experience at La Mariposa is just as amazing. Mariano and his family and staff do everything in their power to make your stay unforgettable. The food is beyond words, the grooms are delightful, and the housekeeping is impeccable. From your first moment on the farm, you are family, and as you say your good-byes, you know that you have made friends for life”.

Just wanted to let you know about my own experience at La Mariposa. I've been here ten days, am leaving today, and have had an absolutely wonderful experience. I'm an undergraduate at Yale and have only been playing for a year. Even though I was here with people with very different skill levels, I felt that I was provided with instruction and practice that was tailored to my own abilities and weaknesses. The horses are fantastic. Mariano is a great instructor and a perfect host. The hospitality is amazing and the food is plentiful and very good. I know that we definitely hope to come back here some time next year, and would highly recommend to anyone that they come here for a clinic.

La Mariposa is incredible. From day one, Mariano Darritchon went out of his way to make my stay a wonderful experience. He took me from Buenos Aires to a tack shop, then out to the farm. The polo instruction was great. Mariano tailored his program to each individual. He gave is as many horses as we could handle for stick and ball and worked in the chukkas to offer a game suited to everyone playing. Whether he passed the ball to beginners or pushed some of the more experienced players, he made sure everyone was learning and enjoying their experiences. Meals were a joy with delicious food and drinks. We’d often stay at the table until midnight. My rooms far exceeded my expectations (they even had a large fireplace). However, what really separates this polo experience from others is that Mariano really cares that his guests enjoying both polo and Argentina. As opposed to some of the other polo schools that either have a rigid method or are just trying to sell ponies, Mariano works with his guests to develop them as polo players. For me, this meant focus on my riding, working on the offside, and some general strategy. Moreover, he has a delightful sense of humor and was great to go out to bars, to sit and chat, or to organize a game of pool. I will definitely be returning to La Mariposa.
