I joined Minninnooka in Aug 2023; I rode as a child & then spent many years out of the saddle after loosing my confidence. I have always loved watching Polo; so decided to go along & give it a go. I can honestly say it is the best thing I have done, the coaching & support from both the Minninnooka Coaches & others within the group has been amazing, I would highly recommend anyone wanting to learn Polo & join an inclusive group to come along & give it a go, you will not be disappointed…


As a non rider and after just 2 years I am able to participate in club chukkas all thanks to a coach who is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun who builds confidence.

We have absolutely loved joining in with the members of Minninnooka Academy to play chukkas every Friday afternoon. The level of competitiveness and fun are equally balanced and that is what makes it thoroughly enjoyable and keeps us coming back for more! The ponies are super safe and give you as much or as little power as you require. Kristie and Daniel alongside their wonderful team have created a unique environment where you get to experience the sport of polo with the ability to learn lots about the game and horsemanship. This formula helps you to improve week on week and always with a smile.
