We are pleased to announce further dates with our visiting Polocrosse coach Anna Kimber Tarbuck. Our Polocrosse group sessions last an hour, and are tailored to meet the level of the rider. We will have two sessions available to book on Friday 28th April. The first session is aimed at our riders who are beginners in Polocrosse or improving on their basic skills – riders must be able to canter for safety reasons. The second session is aimed at our more experienced players and is a much faster pace – definitely one to watch.
The game of Polocrosse
The game of Polocrosse teaches riders to work as part of a team. It involves great balance, throwing, catching and most of all fun.
This is a great chance for our clients to have a go at with our fantastic coach Anna. During the session Anna will teach you all the skills required to catch, throw and handle your stick whilst on foot, before progressing to show casing your new skills on horseback!! Polocrosse is brilliant for those wanting a new challenge, to learn a new skill and to take part in a team game. Our visiting Polocrosse coach Anna is very friendly and accommodating and loves welcoming new players.
The pony club members who attended the last session found it great fun and are looking forward to our next session. Each session lasts 60 minutes and starts off with a warm up on foot, helping you to grasp the concept of throwing and catching the Polocrosse way. Once you have warmed up its time to mount to allow the FUN to really start! Riders will ride together and practise picking up, catching and throwing the ball in walk before progressing to the faster paces. Once this is mastered it’s time for a game!! Our riders will be split into teams of three, and will compete against each other to win the ball, this is great fun to be involved in whether you are riding or spectating! Be warned it gets noisy with all the cheering, and shouting for each other!! The session encourages team involvement, helps to cement relationships and gain new friends.
We have strictly limited places and advise early booking through our reception. Full payment is required at time of booking in order to secure your space.
