Junior Polo


Pony Club & Junior HPA Polo
 

The aim of Pony Club Polo is to provide members with an introduction to polo and to train children to understand the basic principles, rules, riding, tactics and striking the ball for polo and also how to care for and look after the welfare of their ponies. Polo provides high standards of conduct with a competitive spirit in a team sport and provides a bridge to the adult game.

There are six sections based on age groups: Jorrocks, Handley Cross, Surtees, Loriner, Ledner and Rendell. As of 2009, Junior HPA polo has been incorporated with Pony Club polo.

The HPA run the Hipwood, Langford and Gannon sections in conjunction with the Pony Club.

For some years polo has been one of the fastest growing activities in the Pony Club. Pony Club Polo is played by over 500 members, from 6 to 21 years of age in a season of competitions played over the summer.
