Franklin Polo Academy is back up and running for the 2018 season! Half of our school horses are currently available for lessons for the first time in "FPA history" this early in the year. Normally, the horses would be turned out to pasture from late November to early March. This is their break, or vacation, from having played competitively and/or continuously being used in lessons during the remaining months. Having a bit of a rest benefits them physically and mentally, and they come back willing and ready to work!
This year, we established Franklin Polo's first Interscholastic team. The "IS" season goes from September 1st through late March, during our horses' normal vacation. Four of our school horses received six weeks off and then started back into work to compete in the IS tournaments. Team FPA competed the first weekend of February, losing one game and winning another. We are planning for another tournament to be held here at Harlinsdale Farm in the next few weeks.
So, due to the Interscholastic season and the horses being in a routine of exercise, we are able to offer lessons starting this early in the year! We are excited to get going with continuing students and hope to bring the exciting sport of polo to many new people during 2018. Please contact us with any questions you may have pertaining to our clinics or lessons. See below for the 2018 Spring Schedule. Regular lessons are offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
