“Awesome polo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

James is a brilliant polo coach and his field is banging. He is a key man to have on any university polo trip. He has fantastic horses that are great for playing on. I imagine that the bar in his new club house will be nothing short of brilliance.

“First time on a horse, first time playing polo first class time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This i cant recommend enough, i had never ridden a horse, let alone hit a ball from one! Within an hour James the instructor had me not only ridding and controlling the horse but actually able to hit ball to decent degree. I was amazed in such a short space of time i had a new, grated very basic skill of being able to get on a horse and move about.
It will be something i will definitely be going to do again!
Thanks James and the team at J F Polo Academy

“A great experience which I would definitely recommend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

James is a very enthusiastic and talented guy who is happy to share his polo experience. He made me feel relaxed and I was able to enjoy the lesson. The horses are lovely and there is a range from beginner to advanced. Finally the yard is in a great spot and is very well looked after. I would highly recommend JF Polo academy to anyone!!

“Incredible horses and a great instructor!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I have been going now for a couple of years and highly reccomend playing polo at the JF Polo Academy. James tailors the lessons to how you want with excellent coaching and instruction ensuring that you go through all the shots. The horses are brilliant! Well trained and great fun for all levels. I really have improved my polo, having lessons as well as playing in chukkas. The facilities are excellent, both playing on the field in the summer and in the winter going to some lovely indoor schools you really can play polo all year round. Its a great sport and I believe that all those who love horse riding or want to try a sport new and exhilarating should give polo a go, especially at JF Polo!

“Polo lessons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

James is a fantastic teacher & is always encouraging & always willing to help hone particular skills. The horses are fantastic & it helps that they can play at both the basic & advanced levels. The facilities are great too & if you can't play on the field, James has a range of other facilities he can use.

Would recommend this to anyone & will go back time & time again.
