A day in the life of Nacho Figueras, professional polo player and face of Ralph Lauren
The Argentinian polo player has been the official face of Ralph Lauren since 2005. His photograph has been displayed on billboards and glossy magazines across the globe. In between polo matches and photo shoots, Nacho raises money for charity with his close personal friend, Prince Harry.
Aside from playing polo and modelling for Ralph Lauren, the 39-year-old owns a breeding farm of more than 500 horses, the most valuable of which is worth $300,000 (£227,000), according to the Financial Times . Most recently, Nacho has turned his hand to fiction, releasing a ghostwritten romance trilogy, " The Polo Season ," about his beloved sport.Nacho shares an idyllic family life with his photographer wife Delfina Balquier and their four children, moving back-and-forth from their farm in Argentina to a rented home in the Hamptons, a popular summer retreat for New York City residents. Business Insider spoke to Nacho on the phone, while he was breathless after training one day, and asked him to explain what he does on a typical day.
