David hits on the nearside.

The clinic is designed for riders who’d like some variety in their indoor riding routine. Instructor Claudia Howell comes to your arena equipped with polo balls and mallets, a wealth of polo knowledge and a great sense of fun. It’s a low key event. Participants use their own horses.

The clinic starts with a brief history of an ancient sport and a primer on the rules. Next up is the mallet grip and hitting the ball. Everyone is on foot using short mallets, learning the four basic strokes.

Before mounting, you’ll learn to wrap legs and tie tails, an essential safety precaution of polo. With all legs covered and tails knotted, its time to desensitize horses to the mallets. (Claudia will have three school horses available for riders whose horses say no to mallets).

Once aboard, you’ll learn to wield a 50-inch mallet and execute the four basic strokes. There will be hitting and passing drills. The clinic concludes with a walk-trot polo scrimmage. The clinic lasts about 3 hours.
