RoR are proud to be supporting Polocrosse by recognising the Best Playing Former Racehorse in a series of tournaments running throughout the season.
Horses must have Competition Membership and riders 15 years old on the 1st of January 2020.
What is Polocrosse?
As the name implies, it is a combination of polo and lacrosse. It is played outside, on a field, on horseback. Each rider uses a stick to which is attached a racquet head with a loose, thread net, in which the ball is carried. The ball is made of sponge rubber and is approximately 4″ across. The objective is to score goals by throwing the ball between your opponent’s goal posts.
Who can play?
The basic requisite for the successful Polocrosse player is a love of horses and the ability to ride easily and comfortably. Ball and riding skills are improved by regular practice and a competitive edge becomes important in tournament play. Polocrosse is appealing as a sport for all the family and attracts a wide range of ability levels. In England the Pony Club has seen the tremendous potential of the game and there are now a large number of teams across the country. Club level Polocrosse is generally very sociable – for riders and non-riders too!
Eligibility: All RoR Competition registered former racehorses.
Best Playing pony prizes will be awarded to the best playing former racehorse at the Tournaments and Championships.
