Learning to Play Polo in San Diego-Easy Steps to Competitive Play!

The hooves are throwing dirt in every direction like mud bound ATVs as a herd of speeding horses canter down the field at break neck speed. Polo players battle it out swiping and smashing their mallets in an frenzied effort to provide a power hit that launches the little white ball through the goal! Polo is for those who love horses and action as adventurous personalities make their way onto the field.

For interested students the speed and agility of players can seem overwhelming. You may even think, "I could never do that!" ....but that isn't true. Anyone can learn to play polo when they have knowledgeable coaches and a safe environment that can take you step by step into the process. Whether you don't know how to ride, or are a seasoned player, there are classes for you!

Instructors have experience and offer private and group lessons. The good news is you don't even need a horse! They will have it groomed, saddled and ready to go by the time you get there! One of the perks of riding polo at the San Diego Polo Surf Club is that you can focus on learning and not have the expense and maintenance of your own horse.

While I had acquired Western riding experience I never played polo before. To be honest, I was a little unsure of my skills but after the first practice I began to feel very comfortable. It didn't take me long to pick up the basics and by the second class I was already competing on the field. That may not mean I was the best player, far from it, but I did score 4 goals!

If you are interested in learning polo I would suggest San Diego Surf Polo Club for their expertise, facilities and social aspects. Staff are encouraging and they can find the right balance between practice and game play so you don't get bored. Prices are some of the best in the area and are better than competitive.
