Are you an avid polo player or would like to take up the exhilarating, exciting game known as "The Sport of Kings"? Don't forget your RS-tor!

 

 

Polo was once thought of to be solely an elitist sport but it has started to become more available outside the realms of the rich and famous. Group polo lessons including a hired pony are offered by many clubs giving the amateur polo player the chance to experience the sport and

have lessons.

 

Polo is a ball sport, played on horses. Where one team attempts to score goals by hitting hard hockey-sized ball through their oppositions' goal with a mallet attached to the end of a 4 1/4 foot stick. The outdoor polo field is 300 yards long and 160 yards wide, the largest field in organized sport. The goal posts at each end are 24 feet apart and a minimum of 10 feet high. Penalty lines are marked at 30 yards from the goal, 40 yards, 60 yards, and at midfield.

 

Chukkas: Each polo match is divided in to "Chukkas". A chukka is 7 1/2 minutes of active play time and is supposed to represent the amount of time a horse can reasonably exert itself before needing a rest. Polo Matches are divided into 4,5, or 6 Chukkas depending whether the level is Low, Medium, or High goal polo. In outdoor polo there is four players on a team. Numbers 1 – 2 are traditionally attacking whilst 3 is the midfield playmaker and 4 is Defense. However as the sport is so fluid there are no definite positions in Polo!

 

 

If you are only just taking up the sport it may also be beneficial to invest in the RS-tor in order to promote keeping your balance in the saddle; especially when reaching for a tricky shot and your safety is hanging in the balance!

 

The RS-tor attaches to the stirrup bars and has an innovative 'bungee' element which helps prevent rider falls by absorbing the velocity of being unseated.

 

The perfect piece of kit for keeping your seat when taking up polo RS-tor can help riders of all levels keep an handle on the situation especially when travelling at speed and making tight turns!

 

The RS-tor Rider Safety Aid is suitable for a variety of different disciplines including polo and for all levels of ability. Used by numerous professional riders, including Dressage riders, Eventers and Show Jumpers.
