Introduction to Polo – Toronto

$250.00
Where: Kettleby, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Get in the saddle and learn the sport of kings. Enjoy an exciting day learning to play polo a short drive north of Toronto. This one-day polo clinic takes complete beginners and introduces them to the sport of polo.

This one-day introductory polo clinic will give you a chance to learn about the sport of Polo, as well as an opportunity to actually try playing polo on quiet well schooled horses. You will be taught everything you need to know on the ground first, before you get on a horse, so that you feel as safe and confident as possible.

Don't worry if you've never even touched a horse before. Your instructor will teach you front from back and hoof from head, along with many other valuable basic horse skills before you begin working on your polo skills. By the end of your first day, you’ll be sitting confidently on horseback with a mallet in hand. More than two-thirds of students who come to the clinic are beginners.

The polo ponies are extremely obedient and impeccably trained. They know their job and they do it well. The horses have an innate ability to know when it’s a beginner on their back and take extra good care of them … and they often know where the ball is better than the beginners!

Your polo coaches are seasoned players as well as being members of Polo Canada and United States Polo Association.
