Contrary to conventional wisdom, one can in fact look a gift horse in the mouth, now that the mouth no longer houses the retina-scorching nuclear reactor that powers the horse. Get an eyeful of equine incisors with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a private polo lesson with Wrightway Polo at the Bel Air Polo Club in Burbank (a $125 value).
Wrightway owner and professional polo player Erik Wright purveys a lively club equipped with knowledgeable instructors and more than 25 healthy steeds. Students breeze in to Wrightway for a one-hour polo seminar outfitted in trousers, a helmet, and boots or heeled shoes, after which instructors complete equine-sport ensembles with a complementary horse, mallet, ball, and British accent. Lessons correlate to the pupil's skill level, so beginners can pick up the basics of the sport and intermediate contenders can hone chukker-dominating strategies. Opt for a one-on-one tutorial for personal attention or gather equestrian-curious confidantes and schedule a private group bout at the Bel Air Polo Club, which offers sessions seven days a week, or nine days a week in horse time.
