‘Zero to Hero in a day’

It is often said that ‘Polo is the king of games and the game of Kings’

Cool Hooves Polo offers access to the amazing world of Polo and bring this quote to life via its truly unique ‘Zero to Hero in a Day’. (Approx. 6 hours).

Whether you want to motivate, communicate or entertain, our bespoke events offer an imaginative solution. Our high standard of delivery will fulfil your expectations and ensure a fun and exciting introduction to Polo.

‘Zero to Hero in a Day’. You will be coached extensively in all aspects of the game. Learn to ride a Polo pony in walk, trot and canter, swing a mallet from the stability of a wooden horse and then combine all your newly acquired skills on horseback in a Stick & Ball. To gain a practical understanding of the rules and tactics, you will take to the grass on foot with short polo mallets for a hockey-like game.

After a brief respite, all teams will ready themselves for the Polo Challenge ahead.

A two-chukka match will see the winners raise the trophy and walk away with Champagne and prizes. There are no losers, as the remaining teams will battle for the coveted Cool Hooves Polo Wooden Spoon! A professional high goal commentator will be there for all of the highs and lows.

The ‘Zero to Hero in Day’ Polo Experience also includes a continental style breakfast, refreshments throughout the day, then retiring to the member’s clubhouse for a Champagne lunch.

Minimum 6 persons.
