Riding lessons are provided weekly and cater to all abilities. Our team riders train on a Monday night, and beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons are held on a Wednesday afternoon

Riding Lessons: Every Wednesday between 2:30 and 4:30.

Our Polo yard is located in Offchurch Bury. Here the horses are polo ponies and we have an experienced polo instructor who teaches members with various riding abilities. Polo is an exciting, fast-paced sport, but no previous riding experience is needed. Come along to one of our taster sessions and have a go!

Our Polo lessons usually take place on a Wednesday (4:30pm) and Sunday (12pm).

Being in a team is great fun and a good way of being involved in the club, however we also hold other activities such as intraclub competitions so that both team and non-team members can enjoy the excitement and involvement of attending competitions.

For the past 3 years we have been sending teams to Summer and Winter Nationals and we look forward to sending more this year!

We are a very social club and offer lots of different socials from bar crawls and nights out, to meals and trips to ‘horsey events’, such as the Your Horse Live. We always have a great mix of nights out and non drinking socials so there will be something for everyone.
