Polo enjoys a rich heritage at FCHC and at present is offered in the form of Beginner and Intermediate level programs.
Our Youth and Adult Beginner programs are typically offered in the fall, spring, and summer seasons in partnership with the professional staff of Yale Polo & Equestrian Center that provides beginner-friendly polo ponies and expert coaching and instruction. Both our young and young at heart members will have an opportunity to learn the basics of polo, focusing on riding and mallet skills, as well as 'chukker' etiquette and rules, all in a fun and safe environment. These programs are held in our indoor West Ring.
Our Intermediate level program is presently offered as a 16 week session spanning late spring to early fall for our more experienced players, and is held both in our indoor West Ring and outdoor Polo Field. Members play their own polo ponies, as well as leasing arrangements are available from an independent polo professional for members who do not own.
