Helmets are required and can be rented from the facilities. Trail rides are offered Tuesday–Sunday, rain or shine. No previous riding experience is required.
Each rider will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the United States Polo Association, which includes a subscription to the association's Polo Players' Edition magazine.
Middleburg Polo Academy
A 2,000-year-old game from Asia. An Argentinean polo player. A farm in northern Virginia. What may seem like the openings to three different stories is actually the description of one place: Middleburg Polo Academy. The scenic farm ground originally set the scene to a polo boarding and training facility by seasoned polo player Daniel Tognini and his wife, Ilene. These grounds morphed into an academy in 2007, thanks to the Tognini children, who had become enraptured with polo and the eponymous collared shirts the horses wore. Striving to inspire other youths with the game he first mastered in his native Argentina, Tognini fills Middleburg’s calendar with classes, camps, and private tutorials, teaching the history of polo and techniques to help students eventually compete in the sport.
