Polo School

The aim of our Polo School is to introduce the equestrian community to the game of polo in a fun, safe, and thorough manner. All aspects of the game are covered from tactics, strategy, and rules, to horsemanship, swing mechanics and necessary tack.

We meet each Tuesday, with the beginners (B group) at 3pm, and the advanced (A group) at 5pm. Each Polo School runs for a month of  Tuesdays during the summer months, and safe, proven horses are provided.  In addition we will be adding a Thursday night scrimmage for our more advanced students.

Equal time is spent on table-talk sessions, hitting cage, and on field coaching. At the end of each month of the School, students are engaged in a low-speed scrimmage. The head instructor, Dan Harrison, DVM, former 4-goal player and USPA member for 37 years, has more than three decades of experience playing and teaching polo and offers a step-by-step approach to the game.

Through association with the United States Polo Association, (U.S.P.A.), clinics can be arranged to offer Pony Clubs Member groups an opportunity to learn the basics of this great sport.
