What is Polocrosse? 

As the name itself implies, polocrosse is a combination of polo and lacrosse. It is a team game played on horseback, where each player has a polocrosse stick. The players pick up, carry and pass a sponge ball from player to player, with the aim of scoring goals. The team that scores the most goals in a match is the winner.

All age and abilities can play and mounted games ponies adapt extremely well. Polocrosse can be done on any pony (so long as it doesn’t kick) and even the nervous ones will usually be persuaded.

A team is made up of three players on the pitch. The three players in each section play the positions of No. 1 “attack”, No. 2 “midfield”, or No. 3 “defence”, each one of these players is allowed in particular areas of the pitch and so to score goals the players have to work together.

Polocrosse is great fun and teaches members a number of very useful skills, while also improving their balance. Come and give it a go!
