At this Polo Club the passion for horses and polo drives all that we do and it’s been the home of high quality coaching and polo in the South West since 2004. The Club trains a wide range of polo players from complete beginners to international players. We also work closely with schools and university polo teams who train here and there are matches running throughout the year as we run both summer and winter polo.
We look after over 120 horses at either work, rest or play. This includes school ponies, ponies playing professional polo at all levels, hirelings, full and part liveries, horses on holiday, broodmares, foals, a stallion and youngsters in training.

Each groom takes care of 5-6 polo ponies under the guidance and support of the yard manager and senior staff. It’s a busy yet and fun environment with a great team and a fantastic team spirit.
Your daily routine will mainly be mucking out, exercising, tacking up, preparing for lessons and matches, etc and you’ll need to be fit and willing to undertake physical work outdoors in all weathers.
This position could be for a Level 2 Apprentice starting out in their equine career. Equally we will consider someone who has achieved their Level 2 or has at least 1 year’s experience working in the equine industry full time (not necessarily polo) who seeks the chance to step up to increased responsibility and develop knowledge as a Level 3 Senior Groom. There is great opportunity for a successful candidate to progress – this is a full time, permanent role.
Although no prior experience of polo is needed (we will teach you all there is to know about polo!) you should have some basic horse care skills and be confident handling and riding fit competition horses.
GCSE English and maths grades A-C/9-4 (strong candidates with lower grades will be considered but must be committed to working towards Functional Skills Level 2 maths and English as part of the apprenticeship)
Free on site accommodation (own room) with all bills and WIFI included
