Event Details

Give it a Go - For Uni of Shef students only Wear sportswear and suitable shoes. Bring water

Come and join the equestrian club at our polo for beginners sessions. No polo or riding experience necessary! You will be paired with a lovely calm polo pony and will be given a beginners polo lesson. Polo is a really fun sport played on horseback and uses a completely different type of riding to the English style commonly used at UK riding schools.

Meet outside bar one at 10:45. The cost of the ticket does not include transport so you will need to be prepared to be driven by a SUEC member and pay a contribution to petrol of £7.00, please bring this with you in cash. Please make sure you wear sensible footwear such as ankle boots with a small heel (Chelsea boot style) and comfortable trousers that you can move around in. Due to the availability of horses the yard has set a weight limit of 14 stone (88kg). Riding hats can be borrowed from the yard so please don’t worry if you don’t have one! It is essential that participants email equestrian@shef.ac.uk with their height and weight in advance of the session. Failure to do so may result in us not having a suitable horse available and therefore you being unable to participate. In this case, the session will not be refundable.
