Some things you may not know about polo: it dates back to Persia in the 5th century B.C., it is played professionally in 16 countries, and many of the sport’s top players hail from Argentina. And it is filled with hunks. Lots of hunks.

Sadly it is no longer an Olympic sport; instead, The Daily Beast has composed a gallery of some of the hunkiest top polo players. Bonus: they’re animal lovers, too.
