There is a fascination about the game of polo that is hard to describe to anyone who has never played. Once a man has had the taste of it, the task of curing him is rather hopeless.

What to expect at my first polo lesson:

It is natural to be a little nervous for your first polo lesson, especially if you aren't used to riding. We have the best beginner polo ponies that will teach you how to be comfortable and confident while mounted. You will be introduced to a new, thrilling sport that is challenging, physically demanding, and potentially dangerous. However, it is one of the most rewarding feelings to accomplish goals with your horse and we guarantee you'll leave wanting to try polo again!
