If you get hooked, you can reserve a spot in the academy for the following week. The cost is $100.00 per person for the introduction lesson and includes everything you need.  Spaces are limited and filling up quickly.  Private lessons are also available with one of our professional players.  Complete our Information Form to sign up or for more details.

The Polo Academy Program

The Academy is the perfect way to learn all the fundamentals of the game. This popular program is geared toward people with or without riding experience that want to learn a new exciting sport and build relationships in the community.  The Academy meets at the same time each week. Sessions will last about an hour and a half. If you miss one, fear not, there are plenty of opportunities for make ups. After each session, club members will play chukkers. You are more than welcome to stick around and watch.

We will provide everything you need to get the right start in polo, i.e. professional instructors, well-schooled safe polo ponies and all the equipment. We ask that you outfit yourself with white jeans or breeches, riding boots, gloves and helmet (see links below). Spaces are filling fast. Complete our Information Form for more details or to sign up.
