Our Polo Teachers - Classes are taught by experienced players rated by the United States Polo Association (USPA)

John Rosene: John first played polo in 1964 at Onwentsia Polo Club in Lake Forest, Illinois.  After a 20-plus year hiatus, he returned to polo at what is now the Barrington Hills Polo Club.   John served as club president from 1990 to 2015 and he founded the club's recognized Polo School.  He's taught polo to hundreds of Chicago area beginners including Nadir Khan and Megan West who now are the school's lead instructors.  John holds the honorary title of President Emeritus.
 

Nadir Khan: Nadir is originally from Pakistan where he grew up around horses and learned to ride and play Polo in the original form of the sport. He is currently rated 2 goals in the arena and 1 goal on the grass and is in charge of the polo school and player development for Barrington Hills Polo club. Nadir’s strength has always been a balance between participating in 0-16 goal level polo tournaments as an individual, and new player development for the Barrington Hills Polo Club. He is a member of the United States Polo Association Instructors forum and holds a “CU” Umpire Certification for both Outdoors and the Arena.

Megan West:  Megan was first introduced to polo at Purdue University in 2007.  She joined the Barrington Hills Polo Club in 2008 and has since taught lessons both at Purdue and in the Chicago area.  Aside from her involvement as a BHPC Polo School instructor, Megan also serves as the club's equine welfare representative to the United States Polo Association and holds a CU "club level" umpire rating.
