Beginners are introduced to the sport of polo with an overview of the tradition, the rules, and games strategy. On the ground, they’re taught how to hold a mallet and perform each of the four swing types. In a small paddock, participants then mount their steeds to practice the moves, starting slow at a walk or trot so they can concentrate on building skills. Students get to take part in a scrimmage at the end of the session.
Helmets are provided, though participants may bring their own if they wish. Riding or dress boots with a small heel are encouraged. Sessions are available Saturdays at 3:30 PM.
Stage Hill Polo
As the head of Stage Hill Polo, owner and instructor Peter Poor—who has been featured in the Boston Globe—draws on more than 50 years of polo experience to teach the game to students of all skill levels. After guiding students to their provided horses and mallets, Poor teaches his students all about polo strategies and the game's terms and phrases, such as "chukkers," "bumps," and "that's a football." He holds lessons in a small paddock so that riders can learn the sport in a low-intensity atmosphere. Poor welcomes all skill levels and oversees friendly scrimmages during which students can put their newly acquired skills to the test.
