I have been riding for many years but had always wanted to play polo. I am so pleased that I found J F Polo Academy. I booked a lesson and was instantly made to feel welcome. James is a brilliant instructor, knowledgeable, fun and very patient! I have since had a few more lessons and become slightly addicted! On Sunday I played in an instructional tournament, which was fantastic fun and felt like I was playing in a professional tournament. We played the first couple of chukkas then had some additional instruction on the rules, using a polo board, to learn more about lines and fouls etc. We then finished the 2 final chukkas resulting in a draw with everyone cheering each other on. We finished off the day with a great BBQ. My husband came to watch and ended up getting involved in the BBQ. Even though he's not a rider or even a horse fan, he thoroughly enjoyed the day and was made to feel part of the whole experience.
James and Jen have a great setup. The yard and factilities are very professional and the horses are top quality. Their attitude, hospitality and fun made the day. I would definitely encourage anyone to have a go at polo and definitely at J F Polo Academy.
