All lessons and instruction are run by Daisy Hatfield, a fully qualified HPA Club Instuctor.
Daisy has been playing polo for 20years, starting at 8years old at the New Forest Polo Club playing both adult club level polo and pony club polo. She has played polo across the world including Argentina, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa. In recent years she has been playing ladies high goal polo in between playing up to 8goal in mixed polo and running the polo school both in the office and out on the pitch teaching.
The polo lessons we offer are tailored to suit your riding ability and polo progression. In a typical introductory lesson, you can expect to be learning how to ride a polo pony (different from all other equestrian disciplines), hitting the ball and having a good time trying to ride off others in a mini chukka!
We offer seasonal polo packages to enable those fanatics, who fall in love with the sport, to progress at affordable rates. These packages can have you on the polo pitch in no time.
The school isn’t just designed for complete newbies to the sport, we also offer special ‘brushing up’ sessions for low goal players in 30min to help you with any riding/swing/playing problems that may require tweaking with the help of a professional, these are also available at the New Forest Polo Club prior to chukkas or matches upon request.
We love a special occasion here at the Polo School, so be sure to let us know if it is a stag/hen party, birthday or anniversary and we shall be sure to make it as special and memorable for you as possible.
