Horse Movie due soon!

The world's first feature length film about polo will soon be hitting the cinemas.

The Polo Kid is a 62-minute documentary telling the true story of three-goal player Santiago Torres, a teenager from a humble background who left home and school behind and is fast becoming the world's youngest polo star.

Horse & Hound reports that Santiago's journey takes him from the polo fields of California to Argentina, Florida, New York and Mexico. Director Nathaniel McCullagh hopes the film will promote polo to the wider public.

"I wanted to make a film that went beyond the mechanics of polo to show the human side of what it takes to become a star," he said.

The Movie will be in selected cinemas from March, 2010.
