Overview

Polo: a game that involves hitting a small ball with a long stick whilst travelling at speed on board a vehicle with a mind of its own. Sounds insane? Why not try it for yourself at the largest polo training academy in the world? Start off with a briefing on basic rules and theory of polo by expert instructors, including ball hitting, polo riding, hooking and riding off. Afterwards, mount a mechanical horse to learn the basic polo swings before mounting a real polo pony to take part in a 'stick and ball' session. After a buffet lunch there's a video on game tactics, more stick and ball sessions and finally, instructional chukkas so you can put all your new skills into practise. Fast-paced and skilful, polo is an exciting, challenging sport.
