A:

Yes! Stage Hill Polo has a stable of polo ponies that we use for classes. The horses are calm, well trained and know how to play polo.

Q:

How about if I have zero experience (never been on a horse) and I am 60 years old?

Daniel B.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Stage Hill has had students with ages from 6 to in their 80's. These first polo sessions are to give you a feel for the game and to see if you are interested in taking up the sport. We often have beginners who have never touched a horse before, and they can go on to play. You do need to be relatively physically fit, but no experience is necessary to start.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

Just wanted to clarify the rules. If I purchase the 4 one-hour lessons, I have to attend the 4 lessons. It's not like I buy 4, use one and divide the other 3 to 3 friends, correct? Thanks

Brooke B.  asked on  Feb 8, 2013

A:

You may share the Groupon with friends. We prefer if you use it yourself, as this gives you more chances to know and enjoy the sport.

Q:

I'm a little confused about taking more than one lesson. Above you explain that most of each lesson is off-horse instruction about the rules and how to hold and swing a mallet. When I'm there for the second (or third or fourth) group lesson, wouldn't some of the group be there for the first time? So, wouldn't the off-horse instruction just be a repeat for me each time? Thank you for any clarification you can make!

Stacey M.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Practice makes perfect! For me, there is always more to learn about polo. Like all sports, the first time you hear how to do something it seems easy. For instance, swinging a bat in baseball, or using a racket in tennis, or swinging a golf club. Yes, you use the equipment to hit the ball, but a bit of repetition helps you learn. Students are always pleased when they experience improvement in a few lessons. That's why we encourage 4 lessons.

Q:

Hi! If you purchase the 4 lessons, will each lesson build in difficulty? Thanks!

Rachel D.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Yes, you'd be building on your skills with each lesson.

Q:

i just wonder how long will we have to study the rules? And how long we can play the ball? if i never ride a horse before, can i get some fun from it? And also, what is the differents between 2hous and 4 hous? will it teah us more rulls or same time cocahing, more time playing?

Ma X.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

These are Group Polo Classes. During each class the instructor goes over the rules, shows the class how to hold a mallet and swing it properly. Then each student will mount a horse and will have an opportunity to play for a few minutes. I think more is better when it comes to polo. So for me, 4 classes are better than 2 classes.

Q:

When you say limit 1 per visit does that mean I can buy the pack of 4 and bring 4 people that day and we can all do it? or is the pack of 4 mean that it is for one person and they need to come back 4 times? Thanks

Tara M.  asked on  Feb 1, 2013

A:

Oh yes, please bring your friends! Polo is a team sport and very social. You may bring 4 people to one class. However, you will get far more from the polo experience if you come several times. It only takes a few classes to show improvement in your skills. So we encourage you to try 4 classes just for yourself, or splurge and come with your friends for 4 classes.
