The Seattle POlo & Equestrian club presents the
Intro to Polo Clinic
Saturday, June 16th or Sunday, June 17th
Seattle Polo is providing an introduction to Polo Program specially designed for adults looking to try a new sport. You'll learn the basics of polo and how riding for polo compares to other equestrian sports. For anyone wanting to learn polo and take lessons, the intro to polo clinic is strongly advised. The clinic is where you'll learn rules of the game and get the foundations a player needs to play in chukkers with other players.
The clinic consists of a morning session with covering horsemanship and technique followed by lunch and an afternoon session with more instruction and a scrimmage. You'll be on a horse in the morning to learn how to hit a ball and in the afternoon for scirmmage. Professional polo players will guide your every move to help make your experience fun and educational.
This is a great way for you to experience polo in a safe and controlled atmosphere. Riding experience helps, but is not required to learn polo. You'll need your riding helmet, jeans, a comfortable shirt and riding boots with a heel. We'll provide mallets and the polo horses.
