There is no sport quite like it; challenging, entertaining and
exhilarating but not as difficult to learn as you might think. Polo
is a game that everyone can enjoy, and what better way to try it
than at one of Yorkshire's fastest growing and most successful polo
schools. Suitable for both riders and non-riders, you can be
guaranteed a truly constructive and fun experience. You will learn
to play polo with an HPA qualified instructor, the grounds are
beautiful and the standard is high whilst keeping the emphasis on
fun and enjoyment.
After a welcome coffee, the rules of polo will be explained by a qualified instructor followed by a session of foot polo; where short mallets are used to learn to hit the ball and play the game on foot. Then mount 'Woody' the wooden pony (who goes nowhere) and learn how to use the full size mallet and practice your swing to develop your technique, before being introduced to real live ponies to play. All the ponies are well schooled and extremely well mannered and are safe for riders of all abilities. The instructor will be with you at all times and will ensure you have an enjoyable and exciting time.
This Introduction to Polo experience is the perfect gift for animal and sport lovers alike; in addition to having fun and getting to know the wonderful ponies at the Polo centre, you will walk away with the skills to play this exciting and popular sport!
