The A Quechua polo school Kumberg is situated on the Frindorf hill providing a panoramic view into the surrounding landscape and up to Schöckel, the highest mountain in the area around Graz. We are training on a sand arena field measuring 30 x 60 meters. Within the next years we will extend the facilities by a grass polo field.
We are offering different polo courses, from private to group lessions and weekend academies for both beginners and advanced polo players. In polo lessons for advanced players we set different priorities, depending on the participants and their interests. Our current range of coming up polo courses you can find on Next polo courses.
A special feature of the polo school Kumberg is that you don’t need your own polo pony to play polo with us. All the polo equipment you can borrow from us as well. One of our goals is to make polo more accessible for everyone and so we try to get potential obstacles out of the way. We hope to contribute in increasing general awareness of polo sport and to give a growing number of people the possibility to try and practice it.
The VIPs in polo sport: Our polo ponies
We have polo ponies for all levels of playing ability: Besides ponies that are perfectly suitable for beginners and intermediate players we have horses that we recommend to advanced players (they are too fast for beginners). The A Quechua polo ponies are accommodated in modern horse boxes and spend their free time on vast paddocks. Since they are continuously trained they are always in good shape and ready for tournaments.
Our main trainer is Dr. Uwe Seebacher, team captain of the Austrian Snow Polo National team who led his team to the 2016 world cup title and author of the A Quechua polo book series. At regular intervals we invite other polo pros to enrich the training for our players and to introduce their tactic and methods. All trainers at our polo school are licensed by the PIPA (Polo Instructors and Players Association) – to ensure that each A Quechua polo lesson is didactically well prepared and organized.
Besides polo courses at the A Quechua polo school Kumberg we organize polo journeys (in the main season about once a month) so that our players can prove their skills abroad and on different grounds and locations.
