Victoria's reputation speaks for itself......

“Victoria Grace is an excellent polo coach. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge how she has furthered my love for this sport. I began polo with a foundation in riding, however I quickly plateaued in my skills. As I encountered challenges with the game, I found myself becoming more nervous and less competitive. Victoria has turned that around with her technical knowledge and intuitive teaching style. She has identified the areas that I can improve, making the time in the saddle an absolute joy. I have learnt to communicate more precise signals to the horse and thereby get a beautiful response. I am looking forward to furthering my polo skills and my horsemanship with Victoria’s coaching”…… Shannon Nourbash

“I started playing polo not that long ago without any prior riding experience, but my love for horses, and the developing passion for polo, kept me going. To improve my riding and polo skills, I was recommended Victoria as a coach. From our very first meeting, everything was absolutely amazing – I cannot find words to describe her excellence. Here are just a few of her qualities:

  • Victoria undoubtedly understands the sport and leads by example. She is able to teach with an effective, in-depth understanding of the sport from the fundamental skills of polo to the advanced tactics and strategies.
  • She always comes with a plan for our training sessions: Prepare – Rehearse – Perform – Complete. She pays attention to my strengths and weaknesses and we develop communication that is tailored to my level of understanding of the sport. That, together with the fact that she is able to explain ideas clearly, give direct feedback and reinforce the key messages, keeps everything simple and easy to understand. As for our communication, she is a great listener and takes my comments, questions, and input very seriously.
  • I strongly believe that trust between an athlete and coach is of paramount importance at all times and essential for successful coaching. Trust comes from the quality of her actions where she clearly states a code of conduct up front, and she keeps it consistent. I also believe that her high energy, positive attitude, and great enthusiasm, provides me with even more motivation to improve my polo.
  • She keeps the practice fun, fresh and challenging.
  • Last, but not least, Victoria displays commitment and a clear passion for the sport that she loves, and she is constantly looking to improve me as a player. Because of Victoria, I am now playing polo competitively. If you want someone to coach you and propel your game to the next level, then Victoria is your answer.” Minya Bulic

Junior Polo

Victoria is delighted to work with youngsters of all ages to get them started with their riding and hitting in the right way to provide a great foundation from which they can excel as they ride and play more polo.

Victoria established the Junior Polo Academy at Ascot Park to encourage youngsters as young as 5 years old to learn to ride and play polo.

Starting to play in instructional chukkas, then into academy polo, lower club and finally club polo, gave new players a chance to get their confidence with riding a horse, hitting the ball and learning the rules and regulations of the game.
