In our polo lessons, you can expect to learn all the fundamentals of polo. This includes an overview of the history, rules, and strategy of the game, as well as riding and hitting instruction. The majority of learning will take place while mounted.
Our riding lessons will give you a well-rounded education rooted in horsemanship. This entails learning how to handle horses safely on the ground, reading their body language, and understanding proper husbandry. Grooming, tacking, and untacking will be covered. While mounted, you will learn how to become a team with your horse and communicate effectively using your entire body.
Dress comfortably with the weather in mind! Think athletic shirts, t-shirts, and polo shirts. Please wear long pants like jeans or riding breeches. Spaghetti straps and shorts are not recommended.
If you have riding boots, wear those. Hiking boots are also okay—the important thing is that you have a short heel so that your foot does not slip through the stirrup. Sneakers or shoes without heels are not recommended for this reason.
Helmets are required while riding, so if you have your own, please bring it along. We can provide you with a riding helmet if you don't yet have one.
Craving some adrenaline in your veins? Not many sports can top the fast-paced, heart-pumping action of polo! Strategy and athleticism meet in this unique game that, for many, perfectly matches passion for horses with exciting team play.
