Come and experience the King of Games for yourself, at Ireland’s premier Polo Facilities. Polo, sometimes called ‘Hurling on horseback’, is the most exciting and addictive sport you will ever try and we encourage everyone to at least try it once. You become at one with the horse right from the start, you’ll be shocked at how responsive and quite these horses are. The best thing about polo is that it only takes up an hour of your day, no hanging about all day for 10 minutes on the horse.
There are basically only three tasks in Polo:
- Hit the ball into the opponent goal.
- Ride your opponent off the line with your horse.
- Strike the opponents Polo stick to prevent him hitting the ball.
