POWDER BYRNE LEARN TOGETHER
Designed for your family
In true Powder Byrne style, you can trust that our exclusive Learn Together programme is designed with your entire family in mind. Providing you with a perfect balance of exciting new experiences like learning to ride, the first introduction to polo as a game, all the way through to playing stick and ball, and even your first family Chukkas with your own team pro!
With every aspect professionally catered to the individual family members all learning, playing and then relaxing together in a unique environment that keeps you wanting to come back for more.
Exclusively for your family
You will have exclusive use of our gorgeous and authentic Spanish Finca situated in the heart of the ranch grounds and sleeps up to eight people in comfortable en-suite bedrooms on full board with daily cleaning. Perfect for a large family or two families travelling together. The Finca has a private pool and fabulous dining terrace elegantly set within relaxing gardens.
Best of all, the Guesthouse is expertly run by two local cooks who serve up delicious Spanish cuisine such as gazpacho, tortilla, paella, colourful fresh salads and special Argentinian-style Asado BBQ. Together with the on-site concierge team, they take care of all your requirements throughout your stay at the Finca.
Professionally run for your family
We know that, just like skiing, almost everyone who tries polo falls in love with it. There is something appealing for everyone in the family, whether it be the riding, hitting the ball accurately, playing in a team, the speed and adrenaline, the competitiveness (which comes later), or the social scene around the game. It is a phenomenal sport for so many reasons that we know our clients will enjoy especially our five star surroundings.
Our Learn Together programme is always run by experienced and professional instructors in a safe and controlled environment. It is very hands-on to give you the best start to riding and start to play polo on the first day. Our ponies are well trained and hand-selected to the individual. We can supply all the kit, in some cases children may need to wear their own shoes due to size and comfort.

Polo Valley – Spring 2022
“We were greeted with what can only be described as Argentinian oasis. The polo fields, stables and friendly staff just wiped away the fear I had of entertaining my entire family for a week. I decided to take a step back and let the unbelievably professional staff take over and encourage the children to get involved. The incredibly well looked after polo ponies were so calm and patient, we had a fantastic experience and the children are desperate to return.”
Polo Valley – Summer 2022
“Thank you all so much for the most wonderful week at Polo Valley. We have all learned so much in such a short space of time and it was exactly what we all needed as a family rest, relaxation and riding the most wonderful ponies and of course the amazing food. The guest house is so comfortable, the kindness and help from all of the Powder Byrne and Polo Valley team to us as a bunch of novices has been fabulous. We loved everyone in the Polo Valley family. See you in October!”
Polo Valley – Summer 2022
“Having never ridden before, let alone attempted to play polo, this was always going to be a memorable experience and the team have exceeded our expectations all around. Wow! Thank you all so much for helping to make special memories for our family. I for one may now have caught the bug.”
