FANTASTIC MORNING
21 November 2014
I gave my Husband this experience day for his birthday. He is an experienced horse rider, and a rugby player so was already of a sporting mind, but he still had reservations about this experience given he'd not sat on a horse for over 20 years. it didn't matter as the experience accounted for all skill levels, and would have suited everyone, even had you never ridden a horse in your life. The morning was a great experience, and myself and daughter had gone along just to spectate but as there were spare spots we had the opportunity to practice swinging the mallet. The instructor is a wonderful gentlemen, with many years experience in teaching and training people, and a very patient teacher. Within the first hour he'd explained the basic rules, strategies and safety aspects of the game, taught how to hold, swing and use the mallet, and then into the arena on the highly trained ponies. Within a 45 minutes chukka, 2 a side, my husband got four balls into the goal (they may have been a bit lenient with him), and had mastered the basic fun of the match. He came off totally exhilarated and very keen to try it again in the future. Thanks to Robert for a wholly entertaining and exciting morning.

A Fabulous Addictive Experience
01 May 2012
Our day started with familiarising ourselves on crates with the mallet and ball, to then do so on horseback. I am not an experienced rider but it made no difference as these horses are superbly trained. Once we had practiced hitting the ball on horseback we actually ended up having a chukka.. A huge amount of fun was had by all. The instructor was superb.. The location is also marvellous with a local village pub to end the day in.

My polo experience was fantastic. I've always loved horses so to ride at Ascot was a dream. The instructors were really patient and once I got the hang of riding with the mallet (a lot harder than it looks) it was really fun!

I would recommend this to anyone. It does not matter if you can ride or not as the horses are so good! Its a fantastic experience and is very addictive. Pardon the pun but I am hooked on the sport and have returned for more lessons. The club is very friendly and the instructors are excellent. Whether you go as a group or on your own you will have a thoroughly unforgettable day.
