How to become a polo player
Steps to Developing as a Potential Polo Player:
- Take an introductory lesson or participate in a beginner clinic
- If you enjoyed the clinic or lesson you should arrange with one of our instructors to a plan for regular private lessons
- After you feel comfortable riding the horse and have a basic idea of how to hit the ball we will work you into one of our small beginner group practices
- Once you are comfortable in a beginner group practice it is best to commit to a practice once a week
- After a season of practicing once a week often people we decide to part-lease a horse. This keeps costs down but gives more of a feeling of connection with the horse and community. It will also help increase how comfortable you are playing. A partial lease allows you more flexibility and playing time.
- For those who are adamant about their new sport they can invest in a horse. We will help you locate suitable horses. This process usually takes some time to find a horse you are comfortable with and meets your needs.
- Some individuals may want to purchase additional horses over time and a truck and trailer so they can travel with their horse. Boston Polo travels extensively throughout the Northeast for games and tournaments and allows members of the club to travel with the club using the club's trucks and trailers.
