Be patient when you go, it takes a few minutes to get started but worth the wait.
Really fun! Make sure you wear pants!
The horses were very well trained, and responded well to everything I told them to do. It was my first time riding and I didn't have any trouble. There was a 6 year old girl in the group, also riding for the first time, and she was fine: Her horse was led for the first half of the ride, and once she was comfortable, she was allowed to ride on her own. The reservation process is a little unusual (an exchange of text messages) but this is a professional operation with well trained and experienced guides. It was a nice ride through pretty country. I would definitely recommend this groupon to others.
Great experience!! Owner very personable and thorough with safety! Very fun!
Great Experience! Phillip Is An Awesome Guide! Definitely Check Out Middleburg Polo!
They were extremely kind and the day was enjoyable. I would highly recommend going for a ride with them.
This is an excellent outfit, me and my friends had a great time... :-)
From Our Editors
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.
Along with Middleburg Polo Academy, Daniel runs Amigos Outback Adventure and specializes in rustic outdoor activities. Families gather together to enjoy authentic adventures such as trail rides, canoe and river boat trips, and outdoor wine tastings.
