Branden Van Loon

USPA Certified Polo Instructor, Level 1

Branden earned his USPA Certification in 2016 and has been a member of the USPA for 15 yers. He initially learned to play polo in the Cornell Interscholastic program with David Eldredge. He played through college at Cornell where he was the captain of his team his junior and senior years. His team made it to Intercollegiate Nationals all four years he played there and he was selected for Team USPA in 2014. His career as a polo instructor began when he started teaching on a consistent basis at Great Meadow Polo Club. They had a large number of players that started out with minimal polo experience. Through lessons and coaching his students were able to advance into tournament competition at various levels of play. Branden currently teaches at the Yale Polo and Equestrian Center in Bethany, CT. He coaches Yale’s Interscholastic and Intercollegiate teams. He is a certified umpire on the grass as well as in the arena.

What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?
“My favorite teaching memory has to be having the opportunity to watch polo give one of my teenage players such a sense of self confidence both on and off of the field. This sport provides players with tools and connections that they will benefit from for the rest of their lives.”
