PoloAfrica

PoloAfrica uses the love of ponies, riding and polo to give hope and aspiration to boys and girls from economically-disadvantaged rural communities in the Eastern Free State.

PoloAfrica uses the love of ponies, riding and polo to give hope and aspiration to boys and girls from economically-disadvantaged rural communities in the Eastern Free State.
 
Children can spend as much time as they want in a beautiful safe haven where they are given chances to learn to ride and play polo, provided they demonstrate discipline and commitment to the animals and the sport, and work hard at school and the life skills lessons provided in the holidays.
 
The lessons range from extra tuition in Maths and English (two subjects which present a challenge to rural South African children) to practical skills such as acrobatics, art, beekeeping, carpentry, singing and spoken self-expression.
