In polo, a knee and shin protector is important to have as the polo ball goes flying around, in addition to the quick-moving horses. Learn about the leather protective gear worn on the knees and shins with help from the secretary of a polo club in this free video on polo protective gear.

Hi my name is Cyrus Confectioner, secretary of the Calcutta Polo Club. I was just introducing you to all the equipment and the related stuff which is required to play the sport of polo, protective gear used by the players while playing this beautiful sport, polo ponies and where the players are also protected. This is a knee and a shin protector, also very important in this game where you see that ball flying around, around your horse and around the players. This keeps a very important part of the body protected, the knee. The knee as you all know is one of the most important joints. This part keeps the knee and the shin protected. It has got this velcro, you wear breeches and over that you have to just put it and strap it on. That's it. It gives you the full protection required during the match. It is as you see made of pure leather with a very thick padding inside. This part is worn above the knee to keep the knee protected and this is to keep the side of the knee the cartilage area also protected which is also a very important thing. This is a solid protector used in this game. Thank you.
