Pintureros Cup-1267Mike has been riding since he was in the womb.  He started playing polo on a real pony – Comanche(photo, right). He then spent his formative playing years with the St. Louis Polo Club playing with the Orthwiens, Busch’s and others as part of the scrimmage and tournament traveling squads playing tournaments across the Midwest and Northeast.  Mike attained a rating of 1 goal.  He returned to playing polo this year in support of his daughter Katalyn and we are very excited he has agreed to commit his time and energy to help Arizona Polo Club develop its current and future members.  The new Player Development Program will have two parts – the Development Squad for group learning and the Leg-Up Learning for individualized training. Mike is also a CU rated USPA Umpire.

In addition to his background in polo Mike also brings his GoPro camera with him to scrimmages and matches for play review with students. He will also video and analyze your swing piece by price to get your form as near to perfect as possible!

Polo School Program

The polo school program consist of several phases necessary for someone to have the basic knowledge about polo, polo riding and move to the next step which is playing polo at slow pace with peers of the same level and supervised by polo professional and advance polo players. We recommend to have initial polo lessons to get familiar with the polo lingo, riding and get an idea where each individual stands. after the end of the 10 lessons, we encourage all students to join the Chamos League and continue to train and play at slow pace and with coaches that will explain the game, rules and personal observations. Students should continue to take individual lessons to sharpen up their personal skills and needs.
