Polo is the fastest team sport in the world and has no parallel in adrenaline and excitement. You may find yourself drawn to the speed and challenge of polo or to the experience of combining your passion for horses with a team sport.
Never ridden before? Not a problem! We teach you everything you need to know, so that you feel as confident and safe as possible.
Our polo ponies are impeccably trained and extremely obedient. They know their job and they do it well. They have an innate ability to know when it’s a beginner on their back and take extra good care of them. And they often know where the ball is better than our beginners!
Don't stress if you've never even touched a horse before. We’ll teach you front from back and hoof from head, along with many other valuable basic horse skills before we start working on your polo skills. By the end of your first day, we promise that you’ll be confidently sitting on horseback with a mallet in hand.
The school isn’t just designed for complete newbies to the sport, we also offer special ‘brushing up’ sessions for low goal players to help you with any riding/swing/playing problems that may require tweaking with the help of a professional.
FOR BEGINNERS: We supply everything. All you need is a pair of jeans or riding pants and some boots or shoes. Gloves are optional.
FOR EXPERIENCE PLAYERS: Feel free to bring whatever personal polo gear (helmet, boots, knee guards, mallets, gloves) you feel most comfortable with and we will provide the rest. We will match you with players that best suit your level of experience.
We can design a program that best suits you. The following is a breakdown of what you will learn:
Polo Riding: Learning to ride polo style. Initial introduction will take place in the arena and then move to the open field.
Hitting: Learning to hit the polo ball and various shots (nearside, offside, back forehand, neck shots, tail and open shots)
Rules and Safety: Instruction on the rules of the game and how to play safely.
Strategy: Instruction on how the game is actually played including the player’s individual and team responsibilities.
Stick and Ball: Putting it all together, riding and hitting the ball.
Chukkers: Actually playing the game with players of comparable experience.
The program can be scheduled at the convenience of the student and pro.
