3. Petisero: The person that takes care of the horses, the partner in everyday life, his trainer, and even his coach.
 4. Tail: The tail of a horse polo is twisted, bent and tied, which prevents the hairs from clinging to the blocks of competitors.
 5. Thirdman: The «third man» is the sole arbiter as to not be on horseback. Therefore, it is out of bounds.
6. Court: A polo field is 270 meters long and 145 meters. It is the largest sports stadium that can hold about five football fields.

9. Golden goal: When in some games, the two teams are tied, one additional chukker is played. The first team that scores a goal, wins and the game is over.

10. «Li-nea!» you often hear cries, this is the basic rule of polo. When a player hits the ball, the imaginary line that was created between him and the ball is yours. There is a formal prohibition (foul) for the opponent to cut the line. The corridor created by the line between the two players is impenetrable.
