So why polo????
Working with horses is well recognized in providing enormous benefit for mental and physical well-being. Polo adds a further dimension to this as a high paced team sport that combines demand for physical fitness with a need for discipline and focus. At Power of Polo, we believe that the experience of playing polo can positively impact a person's life by improving their self-confidence, their ability to work in a team and in many other ways personal to them.
Through its targeted programmes, Power of Polo partners with other charities to help identify those who may benefit from the experience polo has to offer, such as those undergoing rehabilitation from injury, those with long term heath issues (such as HIV) and those facing challenging socioeconomic conditions. Whether on a day experience, a week course or an ongoing programme, participants will gain experience of the sport in a safe and structured environment with fully accredited and trained HPA instructors.
Its hard to pinpoint the magic of this sport and what is can do for people facing challenges. We have witnessed with our current programmes that the experience challenges a persons identity, showing them that they can do something totally different really changes their perspective of themselves. We also aim to broaden the participants prospects of the world and their potential by increasing social mobility and ultimately their chances of success within it.
