Manolo Polo School was created in order to preserve and expand the "Sport of Kings" in San Diego. Home to Professional Polo Player Santiago "Topo" Mendez, we offer horse riding lessons for riders of all levels of experience.
Beginner Equitation - If you've never been on a horse, or perhaps you just haven't been in the saddle for a while, we offer lessons that cover the basics of horsemanship and the fundamentals of riding. Designed to get you comfortable with the horses and in the saddle. Young riders welcome!
Private Polo Lessons - Designed to help players focus on individual areas of their game. Whether you want to learn the basics with an Instructor or practice your near side's and cutbacks, we offer one on one lessons for individuals and couples.
Group Polo Lessons - There is nothing quite like the thrill of playing polo with friends, and developing awareness of the riders around you is an important aspect of the game. Lessons with multiple riders allow for focus on teamwork, positioning, and learning the rules of the game.
Chukkin' Around - This is Polo! Chukkin' Around is our term for when we get to play the game with confidence that the other riders are aware of the rules and riding safely. 3v3, fast paced, competitive chukkers played with friends and Instructors. Weather permitting, you can find us Chukkin' Around weekday evenings at 4:30 P.M. and weekends at 11:00 A.M. (Round Robin, Designated Teams, Battle Royale, Etc.)
