"Great, come take a lesson this week!" Most first-timers are surprised to learn that most of the players at the Dallas Polo Club started out just like they did - with little or NO riding experience, no knowledge of the game .
We take a stair-step approach to each new player.
Step 1: Purchase Polo School online or call/text Toni (469) 995-1628

When players enroll, they purchase a lesson or package of lessons. In the course of those lessons, new players are taught the very basics: The instruction is primarily related to the mechanics of riding the horse and hitting the ball, although some time is spent on the concept of "the line".
Lessons are held in the outdoor arena on the club's horses, and are scheduled before and after other polo activities so the student can meet club members and see the concepts they're learning about in action.
The object of the Polo School is not to make high-goalers in a month, but rather to give each student enough of a foundation to make an informed decision as to whether polo is a sport which they want to continue to pursue. Should a student choose to continue after they have finished Polo School, the atmosphere and polo schedule at the Dallas Polo Club make it very easy to take the next step. Because many of our members also learned to play polo at Dallas Polo Club, they are eager to help new members. The large number of members and the wide variety of polo offered means that we have just the right atmosphere and level of polo for everyone.
The players you’ll meet at the club are a fun and diverse group from all walks of life; forget the stuffy country club stereotype, this is Texas and the players are thrilled to get new players involved in the club. In addition to polo, the club offers numerous social opportunities away from the field.
We tailor your program to you. A new player with years of riding experience may be playing with other club members in a month, others need more time to learn the basics before they progress to faster play. It's common for new players to progress from "Which way do I face on the horse?" to playing in front of big crowds in less
than one year. Polo is possibly the most exciting sport you will ever try, combining elements of hockey, rugby, baseball and soccer.
Whether you end up walking, watching or galloping, we encourage EVERYONE to least try Polo School at least once!
