With both one to one and group tuition for your family, our instructors will have you hitting a ball whilst sitting on a moving horse by the end of the week!

We were greeted with what can only be described as an 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. From renaming the horses, painting the horses with face paint, and hitting the ball with the polo mallets they were hooked before getting on a horse. The incredibly well looked after polo ponies were so calm and patient; we had a fantastic experience and the children are desperate to return.
My children are completely addicted and want to come back. That is down to the people at Polo Valley; from those who taught us, to the lovely grooms that look after the ponies. A feeling of mallet on ball and simultaneously trying to control a pony is a complete hit with the boys and has made my daughter fall in love with horses all over again. Thank you for mission impossible made possible!
Each day brought something different, a picturesque hack out into the countryside, riding skills, and polo techniques to name a few. A particularly special evening was the Asado (an Argentinian barbecue) at the farm hosted by the Polo Valley Team. Great company, excellent food whilst watching the stunning sunset will take some beating. The team at Polo Valley were extremely welcoming and incredibly attentive throughout our stay and they met and indeed exceeded our expectations.
From beginning to end our time spent at Polo Valley was truly fantastic. When the suggestion was made to try something different, I didn’t quite expect this different and indeed something all of the family could enjoy so much. Our riding ranged from an experienced show jumper who rides every day through to never having sat on a horse, this could only go one of two ways! From the start the instructors were engaging, patient and challenging. By the end of day one we were all able to strike a ball with a mallet whilst on a horse and by the end of the week we were playing a fairly fast and furious game of polo!
