Polo Day for Two
Saddle up and get to grips with this fun and challenging game at the world's biggest polo training academy. Begin with a briefing on the fundamental rules and theory of the sport by expert polo instructors. Next, get a chance to practice aspects of the game such as polo riding, ball hitting, hooking and riding off, all of which will be explained on the day. Then mount a mechanical horse to master basic swings before jumping on a pony to take part in a 'stick and ball' session. After your training it's time to change into official polo gear and mount your horse to put your newfound skills to the test as you both play an instructional chukka. You are welcome to stay for the remainder of the day and watch full matches being played.
