Video Swing Analysis
Learn and see exactly what your swing looks like! This lesson can be scheduled on the field or in the cage at Horse Park Polo Club in Woodside. In this lesson, Doug will film your swing and discuss your technique. You then will both watch the video to discuss where changes need to be made in real time. Then you practice the corrections in the same lesson!
Doug will send you the video file after the lesson so you can watch your swing dynamics and focus on adjustments you need to make. This is invaluable not only to see your swing, but also your body position and balance.
The cost for swing analysis is $125.00 per hour, horse not included. Please contact South Bay Polo if you need to rent a horse. Packages of 5 lessons are also available at a discount.
Private lessons can also be booked with any of our polo professionals. In a private lesson, you can tailor the content on what you want to improve or focus on. Our pros excel at providing targeted instruction and look forward to helping you improve your game.
Private lessons are $125.00 per hour, not included a horse. Be sure to let your pro know if you need to rent a horse from South Bay Polo or from the pros string.
