Destination Polo - Learn to Play Polo in Virginia or Florida

Welcome to Destination Polo


  • Welcome to Destination Polo, a premier polo services business based on the East Coast. Learn to play polo in Virginia or Florida. We specialize in having the finest horses, equipment and providing the best atmosphere for you to learn and play. Our goal is to provide a first class memorable polo experience.

  • In the summer months (May-November) we are based near Middleburg, Virginia, an area that is rich in horse sports and a short commute from Washington, DC. There are many clubs in the area and always an opportunity to play. 

  • During the winter months (January-April), we head south to Wellington, Florida. Home to the highest goal polo in the US and a fantastic place to experience polo. Here you will get a chance to play on some of the best fields in the world as well as see the top players in a Sunday game at the famed International Polo Club Stadium. In addition you can take advantage of the many opportunities that South Florida has to offer such as the beach, golf, site seeing or just escaping from the cold.

  • If unique experiences are what you're looking for we also offer trips to South America to play in Chile, Argentina or Uruguay; Europe to play in England, Germany, Switzerland; Snow Polo in Kitzbuell/St. Moritz/Aspen and beach polo on 3 different continents.

  • We strive for three things: One, know exactly what your needs are and to find a program that is right for you. Two, give you the opportunity to achieve your greatest potential. Three, provide you with the highest quality and most memorable experience possible.
