We are pleased to announce further dates with our visiting Polocrosse coach Anna Kimber Tarbuck. Our Polocrosse sessions are split in to two hour sessions, with the first session aimed at our riders who are beginners in Polocrosse or improving on their basic skills. The second session is aimed at our more experienced Polocrosse players and is a much faster pace.
The game of Polocrosse teaches riders to work as part of a team. It involves great balance, throwing and catching techniques.
This is a great chance for our clients to have a go at Polocrosse. The session will teach you all the skills 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 90 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 and let the FUN 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.
It is suitable for any rider who is able to control there pony in canter. We have strictly limited places, due to the nature of the session, so places will be given on a first come first serves basis. We require full payment at time of booking. Body protectors must be worn.
Our staff think this is so much fun we are sure our clients will! For more information or to book contact reception on 01606 89211 1
