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

"I had a chance to visit JF polo academy and play chakkars . 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 "

I’ve spent a lot of time at JF over this summer and have had a wonderful time there, both James and Claire are lovely hosts, very patient and have succeeded in creating an inclusive community within JF, I would highly recommend them for all abilities and age groups.

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.
