Polocrosse provides The Pony Club with a team competition requiring courage, determination and all-round riding ability on the part of the rider and careful and systematic training of the pony.
It encourages a higher standard of riding throughout The Pony Club and to stimulate among the future generation a greater interest in riding as a sport and as a recreation. It is suitable for ordinary children on ordinary ponies and encourages a strong and unselfish team spirit.
There are a number of polocrosse competitions and events run each year in The Pony Club, from taster days for beginners to international competitions. Each year there are a number of tournaments held around the country for Branch and Centre teams to compete in, in different age categories, and the Polocrosse Championships takes place each year at The Pony Club Championships.
Every two years The Pony Club run a Home International, with teams of Open, Junior and Mini players from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales vying to lift the trophy. In 2018 the UK will be hosting a team from the Australian Pony Club for a two week tour, culminating in test matchs at the Celyn tournament.
