Learn How to Play Today

Have you ever dreamed of dashing down a 300 yard long polo field, mallet in hand, on top of a prized polo horse in pursuit of a small illusive ball with the intent of skillfully directing it toward the winning goal only 24 feet wide?

Try a 2-hour

Polo Experience

Many of our Friday spectators attend a Friday match and leave with a desire to learn more. Willow Bend Polo School has a first time POLO EXPERIENCE program designed to expose an individual to some of the basics of polo (both from a player and spectator perspective) and is a great way to prepare for our polo school program. Come out for a 2-hour emersion into the Polo Way of Life where we will put you and your teammates on a safe horse in an arena, swing a full sized polo mallet in our hitting cage, hear an A to Z polo informational with Q & A and learn some basic rules and regulations with an interactive experience on the polo field with your teammates.

Cost is $200 and each participant will also receive a complimentary Willow Bend t-shirt and hat.

Space limited to groups of 8 so sign up early via email to andrea@willowbendpoloclub.com or call 972.294.4700. No prior riding experience needed. We provide the horses, tack and helmet and recommend jeans, boots with a heel and a comfortable shirt.

Lessons & School

In both the Spring and Fall, the Willow Bend Polo Club offers a unique and fun program enabling people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to learn to play. During the eight-week program, individuals who have never played polo learn everything necessary to participate in a match. Horses and tack are provided. Each personal experience will be tailored to the individual based on their goals. Students will learn basic horsemanship, swing mechanics, game strategy, rules of the game, hitting cage practice and most importantly – have fun!

Prefer a little one-on- one for a more intense emersion or to hone your skills. Try private lessons with one of our skilled instructors.

Our polo lessons and school allow students to begin with lessons and progress, when ready to move out to the grass for some Club chukkers. Being coached the whole way in a safe, encouraging environment. Whatever your level, lessons can be arranged to fit your schedule and include the use of a horse, tack, polo helmet and mallet.
