Learn to Play Polo
The Sarasota Polo Club offers a unique and fun program enabling people from all ages, backgrounds and abilities to learn to play or just learn to ride. Each personal experience will be tailored to the individual based on their goals. Students will learn basic horsemanship, swing mechanics, rules of the game and most importantly- have fun!
Our step up program allows students to begin with lessons in the arena, progress to arena chukkers and when ready, move out to the grass for Sunshine league 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, mallets and balls.
