Anyone interested in coming back and giving it a try are welcome. The players from the previous day are very kindly offering a short lesson and use of their ponies for you to have a go.
Anyone interested must have some riding ability, be wearing heeled boots (with a smooth sole) and have a fitting helmet.
Children are very welcome. It would be a great opportunity for those who are particularly keen, as it could possibly lead them into interschool polo, which is a very popular and fast growing sport amongst the schools.
