Born in Argentina in 1977, Ignacio "Nacho" Figueras developed a love of horses and the game of polo by the age of nine. When he was 17, Nacho began his professional polo career playing for the hugely successful White Birch high-goal team in the U.S. From there, he has played polo all over the world including Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil, Singapore and the Philippines. Figueras plays for the Black Watch Polo Team in Bridgehampton, New York in the summer and in Palm Beach, Florida during the winter season. He returns to his ranch in Argentina during the spring and fall where he has a successful polo pony-breeding business called Cria Yatay.
