About Us

Swinford Stables is a purpose-built polo facility, offering polo lessons, clinics, chukkas, experience days, polo horse hire, professionals for tournaments, livery/schooling and tailor-made exhibition matches / private events. 

Membership fees are not required to play polo at our academy; we work on a pay-as-you-go system. We teach to all levels of experience, from absolute beginners up to professional players -  whether wanting to try polo as a one off, take up as a hobby or pursue polo as a potential career. 

We are proud to be the only Cheshire West and Chester (council) licensed riding facility, to hold a 5* rating for three years, issued for a second consecutive time since the new scheme began. We hold a flawless inspection report since opening in 2006.

We are proud to be the first equestrian center in the Cheshire area to be awarded with a three year license as a 5-star establishment for the purpose of hiring out horses.

In 2020 we were proudly made official partners with Hurlingham Clothing. We are delighted to work with this modern and dynamic clothing brand that has continued to support British polo over the past decade.

 In 2020, we were awarded the Sports Tuition Service of the Year in the Manchester & North West prestige awards. This was based on service excellence, industry recognition, employee satisfaction, marketing & branding, ethical practice and customer feedback. This is the first time we have received this award and we are absolutely delighted.
