FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

No prior horse riding experience is necessary to learn to play polo. You will learn to ride as you learn to play polo. Of course it will be an asset if you have prior horse riding experience.
You can start as young as you want, though most kids begin around 8 years of age. There is no age limit.
Being in decent shape helps, but it’s not necessary to learn to play polo. After all, it’s the horse who is running, not you!
There is an element of danger when you are sitting on a 1000 pound animal. However, the polo ponies are experienced and are used to handle inexperienced polo players.
Each lesson is 1 hour long.
Outdoor polo is dependent on the weather. However, we have partnered with Hunters Creek Equestrian Center in Westerville so we can play indoor polo!

TESTIMONIALS

Never imagined I would be able to play polo, and to actually be mounted and playing a game in under an hour was unbelievable. I had a fantastic time and can’t wait to do more.
