Polo Clothing to Keep You on Top This Season

With the new year upon us it’s time to begin thinking about the upcoming polo season. While shopping for new polo clothing there are three things to remember: safety, practicality and style.

Polo is a hard-hitting sport and it is essential for players to choose polo clothing that will keep them protected.


Head Protection

To ensure safe play, helmets and faceguards should keep you protected during the game. Not only will this keep you safe whilst travelling at rapid speeds, but guard you from fast flying polo balls and stray mallets.


Polo Whites

As well as being a competitive sport, polo is also very high fashion. To look the part during a game there’s a specific wardrobe that many like to adhere to. Specialist polo jeans featuring a slightly tapered leg will fit the dress code and keep you comfortable while riding.



To following the polo clothing dress code, high grade, well fitted polo boots are an essential for players. Find a pair made from thick leather with sufficient ankle support and a strong sole. This will allow you to stay stable during the game, to keep your balance and avoid potential safety hazards.


Knee Pads

During the match your legs will be very exposed, making them vulnerable to objects flying in your direction. Polo knee pads will keep you protected whilst on the saddle, and help to prevent possible injury in the event of a fall.



To keep a secure grip on your reins during play, gloves specifically designed for polo are available. Either a full pair or one glove can be worn.


Equipping Your Horse

It’s not only the rider who needs to restock their kit. Horses are also a part of the game and are therefore exposed to the same kind of safety hazards. Complete with a noseband, headpiece, cheekpieces, plain browband and reins, an English Pelham Bridle will provide everything you need to keep control of your horse.

Polo bandages are also used for added protection for your horse’s leg protecting them from bruises and possible injury.
