Introduction to Polo - York

Enjoy an afternoon out in the countryside learning to play Polo.Suitable for riders and non riders, this great introduction lets you play with HPA instructors and learn from the best!

Animal Experience Days: 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!

Amazing day of learning to play Polo

Had such a fabulous day. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and went above and beyond to include everyone and give us all a fantastic activity day. Horses were beautifully cared for and the staff ensured the right horse matched the level of rider. As a complete beginner, the staff put me at ease and I loved every minute of it. I even managed a trot. Everyone in my party loved the day and it was great for all ages and level of riding. Well worth every penny and would highly recommend! Thank you for such a brilliant day!

Excellent day

Fabulous set up making for a fantastic day. Friendly professional training throughout the day. I had a great time and would rate this as 1st class. The trainer was on hand all the time and really brought out the best in me with his coaching. The horses were stunning and immaculate. I am returning very soon as it was just that good. I had never ridden a horse before yet within 10 minutes I was riding and hitting the ball on a polo pitch. I can't recommend it enough.
