BEGINNER POLO PLAYER PROGRAMS
Every horseman knows the tremendous skill required maneuvering a horse at high speed, and every golfer knows the difficulty of accurately hitting a small ball with a long club. Consider, then the 2,500 year old sport of polo: to ride a half ton of high powered horseflesh, often at speeds up to 30 mph, up and down a field larger than 9 football fields.
Imagine using a 52” whippy mallet to hit a 3 1/4” ball and drive it between the opponent’s goal posts, only 8 yards apart. All this is to be accomplished while four determined opponent’s, each with his own powerful horse and long mallet, are striving mightily to interfere by striking the ball, hooking the mallet, or pushing your horse away.
