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 Wednesday, with the beginners (B group) at 3pm, and the advanced (A group) at 5pm. Each Polo School runs for a month of Wednesdays during the summer months, and safe, proven horses are provided.


Equal time is spent on table-talk sessions, hitting skills, 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, 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.
