What should I wear to my first polo lesson?
-Wear a pair of jeans, a comfortable shirt and a pair of riding boots. If you don't have riding boots wear a pair of shoes or boots with a short heel. The polo school can provide your with a riding helmet if you don't have one. You will be required to wear a riding helmet, so if you have your own helmet, you will want to use it during your lesson. Gloves and wrist band are always helpful.
Do I need to know how to ride a horse?
