The Polo School@Haviland Hollow - Our Philosophy
Our goal is to provide an absolutely safe and comfortable environment for you to enjoy polo at any level. "Safety first" is our motto and we ensure this is reflected in everything we do. Our facilities are comprehensive, complete with an indoor and outdoor arena. You can develop your confidence by taking lessons in the safety of our indoor arena and when you are ready, take part in some instructional chukkers followed shortly by playing in our coaching league. Our instructors are experienced horse men and polo players who teach you in the basic concepts of equitation along with skills required for the game. Our polo school horses are carefully selected to be safe and sound for all levels based on assesments from a pool of over 25 club horses.
- Polo Lessons - Individual/Group Individual lessons focus on riding, mallet handling and hitting basic shots. A polo pony and tack are available for all sessions. Our pricing is per lesson and we also offer group discounts and discounts on multi-lesson packages.
- Polo Clinics - Clinic programs focus on rules, polo riding, choosing the right shots, game strategy, and generally playing polo. Clinics are usually for an entire weekend. We also host an annual USPA polo rules clinic to help you get a hang of the rules as well as for those aspiring to become certified umpires
- Instructional Chukkers & Coaching League - Coaching focuses on preparing for league and tournament games. Instruction during chukkers focus on playing your position and avoiding common fouls and moving violations.
