I contacted a barn that specializes in polo (Fox Meadow Farms in Naperville). The trainer, Dan Healy, suggested we do a Polo Party- It would consist of a 2 hour polo lesson, wine, and cheese. They can accommodate up to EIGHT riders. I booked for Saturday, February 8th.
Exact prices are in: $100 to ride, $25 to audit and participate in the party including wine, snacks, food, polo videos, etc.
There will be a polo lesson with discussion. We will begin with the very basics. I spoke with Dan, and he says they can even accommodate riders with little to no riding experience, so do not shy away because you think you won't be good enough!
Dan has turned down a job in LA to teach us, so as many people as can commit and come out would be greatly appreciated! We have 4 mounted spots left available, and an unlimited amount of auditors. Let's build a reputation as a "serious" horse group in the Chicago area- the more we get involved in barns, the more likely people are to open up their facilities to us!
The deposit has been sent in- so we are CONFIRMED for this meetup. So far riding we have:
There are still two mounted spots available, and we have an unlimited number of auditors! Let me know if you would like to ride!
