We offer polo courses for all different levels of experience with polo or other equestrian sports. Beginners who approach polo for the first time are as welcome as advanced polo players who wish to deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge.
Our straight forward approach to teach polo enables clients who never sat on a horse’s back before to find quick access to this sport. Three days of polo give you a good start to the fascinating team sport and enable you to already play a first chukker. Please find information about A Quechua Polo Courses at the Poloschool Kumberg Website and about polo courses at other locations in the section polo trips.
A Quechua polo courses consist of comprehensive theoretical knowledge (rules, technique of the manoeuvres etc.) and a lot of praxis. All theoretical polo contents are available also in form of books: A Quechua edited the first comprehensive series of polo literature. Read more about the A Quechua polo books here.
It is at the core of our philosophy that the polo basics are best learnt in the arena field. Arena Polo offers the advantage of more visibility both for players as for spectators. Especially for beginners the smaller and thus more manageable field leads automatically to more contact with the ball. The reduced number of players in Arena Polo (2:2 or 3:3 instead of 4:4 in grass polo) also gives them better conditions to get practise.
How can you learn to play polo?
We recommend a 3 days polo course as the most effective start to playing polo. Within three days you know all the basic polo rules and are able to perform the essential moves, turns and swings. Your training starts on a wooden horse and soon moves on to a real polo pony. In one week end you even play your first chukker. For further information about next polo courses follow this link.
After the beginner’s polo course you continue with a second introductional course and then move on to the advanced courses or you opt for private training lessons. After getting some routine in playing polo and knowing all the basic rules you can take the chukker preparation exam. Having passed it you become a „full PIPA member“ – PIPA is the Polo Players and Trainers Association. Then you can play in our tournaments, participate actively in all A Quechua events and train in all AQ schools. As a PIPA member you can also take a monthly subscription in one of our polo schools reducing training costs.
A Quechua edited the first series of polo book covering all theoretical topics: The game’s rules, moves and tricks are addressed as well as the maintainance and training of the polo ponies.
The following titles are available:
Volume 1: Simply Polo
Volume 2: The Polo Connection
Volume 3: The Perfect Swing
Volume 4: The Smart Game
