Beginner/Intermediate Polo Clinics

july 29, 2018

Learn the fundamentals of polo at this one-day clinic for beginner and intermediate riders. No previous riding experience required for the beginner-level clinic. We provide the horses and the gear.

Learn polo rules and strategies, the correct way to swing your polo mallet, and the basics of polo horsemanship on exceptionally trained polo ponies/horses provided for use in this clinic by George Dill.

Simply bring yourself - attired in jeans or breeches with boots that cover the ankle and have a heel - and we will provide everything else to make this a fun, exciting and positive experience.

This clinic is the perfect opportunity to try riding for the first time or to test out a new discipline for those with horse experience. Riders will be grouped according to riding experience; beginners welcomed and encouraged.

  • Clinic runs from 10:00AM until noon
  • No previous experience with riding or horses required
  • $300 for Southlands/Vancouver Polo Club Members
  • $350 for all others
  • Limited spaces - so reserve your spot early!
