HORSE RIDING & ARENA POLO
The origin of Polo, also known as the ‘The Sport of Kings’, goes all the way back to Persia. The game first played in Persia dates back to the 5th century BC or much earlier. Because of which most of us may have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back.
Regardless of your age or riding experience Horse Riding, polo Chakkars, Polo Stick and Ball at The Rambagh Polo Club.
It may also be possible to watch how the professionals train these horses and interact with them. Observe how a polo pony is trained, it is carefully selected for quick bursts of speed, stamina, agility and manoeuvrability. Temperament is critical; the horse must remain responsive under pressure and not become excited or difficult to control. Watch and maybe learn how they are trained to be handled with one hand on the reins, and to respond to the rider’s leg and weight cues for moving forward, turning and stopping.
Polo as a playing sport is also popular in Jaipur and it is possible to attend polo matches at the Rambagh Palace Polo Ground during the season. The dates for the coming season are:
- 1st to 30th September, 2018
