Re: [RC] Horse Expos and Polocrosse - Lynn Kinsky

Also, I came across a booth that was promoting Polocrosse. With crosstraining in mind for my 5y/o Quarab, this sport looks like a ton o' fun. It definitely looks like great training for the horse and rider that would improve muscle, stamina, balance, and over all conditioning. Does anyone else do Polocrosse or tried it as a tool for fun and conditioning?


For several years in the late 1980's we had an active polocrosse team here in Santa Ynez and even hosted a regional tournament. It was great fun -- my stepdaughter competed with a couple of my Peruvian Pasos, giving them a great base when we later took up distance riding! It did get a little rugged towards the end -- we had a number of polo riders who came out and they didn't appreciate -- and the referees didn't get on their cases enough -- that polocrosse wasn't as much of a contact sport as polo! But that was just our club -- I still see clubs and members I recognize at http://www.americanpolocrosse.org/
