I have been playing at the Dubai Polo Academy for 2 years now. The team is fantastic, patient & fun! Steve, the coach, has a revolutionary teaching method which works weither you are a beginner or confirmed polo player / horse rider! The horses are fit, very well educated and taken care. Lizzy is welcoming you in the best way,... More

A very well laid out area for gastronomy, leisure, and above all Polo. A perfect oasis in the desert, sublime, tranquil and laid back.

First off, let me say this, I ride hunter/jumper (ok did) and have played polo LIMITED at best with my very skilled polo playing twin sister. My husband, who has no fear, has never played but can ride (again, since no fear). This by far was the best experience of our 10 day plus honeymoon. After finding them on trip... More

I read lots of reviews about novices playing polo here, but I was hoping the experience would be good for my husband too who is an experienced polo player. We signed up for a lesson (as this was required by the academy) but on the day of the lesson they called to say the instructor was sick and asked if... More

Before you might have throughout that by making the ball move you have immediately become a so called "polo player". Steve is trolly one of the only coaches, who, would explain all of the problems that you might have and try to solve them in every session. Its all about "looking trolly cool", he would tell you and make you... More

My intro lesson was the highlight of my Dubai holiday. Steve and Lizzy were so friendly and accommodating. My horse was beautiful, and so well schooled. I enjoyed my lesson hugely- polo is more challenging that I thought! I would certainly recommend giving it a go. The polo club is amazing- my husband had a lovely relaxing morning on the... More

Well after a fair amount of persuasion on my part to encourage my husband and the couple we were travelling with (neither of the men ride) to take part in this activity we arrived for an introductory lesson to polo. What a fabulous experience it was! Our instructor Steve was fantastic, highly amusing and put everyone at ease immediately. The... More

Steve and Lizzy really put everything into their polo academy. They are up at crack of dawn for lessons and will make sure that you are safe, comfortable and appropriately dosed with caffeine to make your experience world class. Lots of regular clients who are really nice. A real 'club' atmosphere' whether you are coming as an experienced rider, or... More

What an amazing experience! I spent the most amazing afternoon at the academy! After not having ridden for a number of years I approached my introductory polo lesson with a degree of trepidation but was soon put at ease by the experience of both the fantastic instructor Steve and my allotted mount! I would recommend this to anyone from novice... More

Spent the afternoon at the British Polo Day. Lovely atmosphere (all a bit too English.. a touch of local Dubai would be nice). But excellent layout that allows you to watch the game with ease. Great brunch (remember the 4pm deadline - they snatch any bottles of wine off the table on the dot). Great day out!
