Fancy learning a new skill? In this fantastic half day’s introduction to the sport of polo, you’ll be doing just that. Your instructor will take you through a structured programme that’ll teach you the rules and tactics, the polo swing and polo riding, before you’re ready to put your newfound knowledge to the test in a mini match!
Playing with safe, quiet ponies will make it easy for you to learn to move, stop and turn; and once you’ve had some ‘stick and ball’ practice, you’ll take part in a Chukka with other learners. Perfect if you’re a lover of horses or just enjoy trying new things, this is an exciting and entertaining way to kick-start a new hobby.

What happens on the day?
The Introduction to Polo experience runs on most weekends throughout the year. The two hour lesson takes you through all basic components of the game to give you an understanding of the sport. You will spend time learning the rules and tactics by watching a demonstration by your instructor using a board with miniature pieces. You will then stand on an elevated platform with a shortened polo mallet and be taught the polo swing and the four basic shots.
Then mount and learn how to ride a polo pony. Finally, put it all together by doing some stick and ball, (riding your pony and hitting a ball in solo practice.) Following the Introductory lesson you are able to play a mini game of polo – in an ‘Instructional chukka’ - where you can enjoy playing competitive polo and practice what you’ve learnt.
