POLO EXPERIENCES

Polo Experience Days

If you are looking for something totally new and exciting, our Polo Experience Days are absolutely perfect! Corporate days, team building, hen and stag parties or simply a great day out. We can put together a bespoke Polo package and create a fabulous day to remember!

 

Our Polo Experience Days are suitable for all ages and ability, from non-riders and complete beginners to those with more experience. You will be amazed how quickly even complete beginners will be hitting the ball

       and even playing a mini chukka by the end of the day.

 

The day can be hosted at our stunning Yorkshire countryside location or alternatively we can bring the Polo to you and hold it at your own property, school or university.

 

We provide all the equipment you will need for the day, including our beautifully trained polo ponies.
