We have a new polocrosse instructor ,who will now be running monthly Polocrosse Lessons.
We will have two groups running each time to cater for all levels of player.
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 Amy.
During the Polocrosse lesson Amy 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 Amy is very friendly and accommodating and loves welcoming new players.
Members who attended the last Polocrosse lesson 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.
Your first session will be 60 minutes long and will cover the basics of throwing and catching on foot before trying out your new skills on one of our horses or ponies.
The riding session will then allow you to work individually and then play as a team putting the skills that you have learnt into practice, with the guidance of Amy who is an experienced polocrosse player herself.
Riders are required to be able to walk, trot and canter in order to enjoy and get the best out of this polocrosse lesson.
This group is for those who have already understand the basics and prefer a faster pace. This group is always fun to watch as the riders and the ponies get stuck in and all love the game. The session will work an improving skills and finish up in a game with riders being split into teams. This group is very competitive and fun to be involved with.
We provide the equipment for those without their own sticks and balls.
Our next polocrosse session is Friday 9th December. Contact our reception on 01606 892111 for booking and enquiries.
