I can not recommend J F Polo Academy highly enough. I first turned up having not been on a horse in years however James built up my confidence and now I just can’t get enough! The group lessons are brilliant, working on technique etc at the start followed by a mini chukkas style session. It’s also really great to see how much love and passion James and Claire have for their ponies and the sport.
James is an excellent teacher who’s passion and enthusiasm is super infectious. I just wish they were open all year!

Before i go into this review i'd like to point out that im a very firm believer in only giving credit where credit is due. I was massively impressed with James over at J F Polo academy as an instructor for my 8 year old daughter Ellarose. She initially began showing an interest in the stunning polo ponies at the academy and decided to do a trial session on the basics of riding. This brought out a side of Ellarose that was beautiful to see, her confidence soared beyond belief, James was able to instantly see where Ellarose needed to correct her riding skills and over the short course of 4 weeks James was confident in her abilities to progress her into childrens polo skills.

I have to say the progress she made in the short space of time was solely down to James' experience in instruction. Ellarose adapted from basic riding to being able to ride and control any of the ponies she was assigned to whilst being able to co ordinate striking the ball with ease. For an 8 year old girl to listen intently to the clear concise instructions James gets a huge thumbs up from me.

After the lessons the Ellarose was invited to help wash the ponies down and learn a little about horse care. We love it at J F Polo academy. It's an experience you won't regret taking on for your children or even yourselves.

Thanks to both James & Claire for developing Ellaroses confidence in anything she encounters in life that little bit more.

Cheers guys

Impressed to see their professionalism I believe James and Claire are doing a commendable job running the academy both for beginners as well as professionals. Their stabling facility is top notch where horses are happy and well trained .Thumbs up James and Claire for your efforts towards fostering the growth and future of polo "

Excellent place to learn polo on super horses at affordable prices. But so much more than that: friendly, sociable atmosphere and not at all intimidating. Beach rides and social events enhance the experience. Professionally coping with the extra demands as a result of Covid.

From start to finish a fantastic day out! Such a knowledgeable team in great surroundings. Healthy and happy ponies in well maintained stables and a gleaming polo field to boot.
Will certainly be returning time after time.

Excellent coaching, friendly, informal but professional atmosphere and, most importantly, really lovely, well-schooled easy, safe ponies. James and Claire are super friendly and make everyone feel comfortable and at home as soon as you arrive.

I have been taking lessons with James at JF Polo Academy for several months now. James is an excellent teacher and I have had loads of fun and improved massively under his tuition. The ponies are all absolutely gorgeous and a joy to ride. JF Polo offer far more than just polo lessons. Throughout the summer I’ve had opportunities to play chukkas, visit and play at Cheshire Polo Club, invitations to BBQ socials, nights out and trips to the beach as part of JF Polo Academy. I can’t recommend JF Polo enough!

Fantastic facilities and very high quality horses. I had a great lesson off James the head coach and then joined in a few practice chukkas.
