  • I have been giving thought to having a go at Polo for quite some time as the game really appealed to me. However, having never ridden a horse in my life, I kept putting it off. My initial conversation...  more »
  • Having never ridden a horse before beyond a fair ground carousel I was unsure what to expect. What I received was awesome. In an hour I went from unable to even go forward (thanks Loki) through to knocking about a ball with the mallet and having the confidence to do it at a canter (once, I missed but...) Would heartily recommend contacting James, who's patience and guidance shouldn't be underestimated for lessons whether you're a novice or a seasoned rider.
  • What a fantastic day we all had - four friends booked a day at the JF Polo Academy last year and we are looking forward to returning this year. The day was perfectly planned with riding first, wooden horse practice, lunch provided and then chukkas on the polo field - it was an amazing experience! James was a great tutor, the academy has super facilities and quality ponies, catering for all levels - highly recommended. Polo is a great sport, so much fun and very addictive!
  • JF polo is a wonderful place to learn polo. Coming as beginners to the sport and not the best riders, james had us progressing much faster than I could have ever expected. The facilities are superb in a beautiful setting. The horses are of an exceptional standard; responsive, well trained and to suit all standards. James is very friendly and accommodating and always manages to fit us in even at very last minute. His tuition is fantastic, you always go away feeling happy with achieving something new. I would highly recommend jf polo as the place to learn..its made us love polo and now we cant keep away from the place!
  • I started learning polo at the JF Polo Academy a couple of years ago. The lessons taught me technique and rules of the game etc, the facilities, equipment and ponies are all of an extremely high standard and it was a pleasure to go for the sessions. James is a very patient instructor and makes you feel very welcome, he got me to a standard that enabled me to play in my first match within a year. I would highly recommend JF Polo Academy to anyone wanting to have a go at this sport.
  • JF polo was a real find! James is amazing and my daughter has a life long love of polo and has been excelling under his tutealage since she was 10 years old ! His new facilities are wonderful! You will not go wrong with JF Polo academy! X
