Polo The Weirdo Joins The Ponybox Team
 By PonyBox   •   31st Jan 2013   •   3,393 views   •   9 comments
Earlier this week Ponybox announced on Facebook our partnership with Polo the Weirdo. Ponybox is excited to partner with such a talented trainer, rider and writer. We feel the combination of her talents will bring a fresh element to the Ponybox news section. Sit back and enjoy her rocket into the 2013 show season on Ponybox as an up and coming equestrian star!

Ponybox player ‘Polo the Weirdo’ is a professional horse trainer and a high-level competitor in multiple equestrian disciplines in South Africa. She owns six horses, with a current competitive string of three, all self-produced.

Polo The Weirdo Joins The Ponybox Team

Polo started riding in 2003 at the age of nine on a twenty-year-old cart pony, Astro, adopted from the SPCA. From there she went on to purchase a racehorse off the track: her namesake, ‘Polo’, and the pair learned together. After a short and somewhat successful competitive career on Polo in lower showjumping classes, she went on to rescue seven thoroughbreds from the deceased estate of a late racehorse trainer in 2004.

Of those seven, Polo still owns three, namely: Finola, Bronze and Choc. After backing and / or retraining these horses, she produced Finola to a 1,35m showjumping level, and both Bronze and Choc to a 1m eventing level, qualified for FEI one star, to 1,20m and 1,10m showjumping and to elementary and novice level dressage respectively.

In 2010, she was given an ex-racehorse - Ponybox favourite, ‘Moonfire’ – who she has produced to reach his current level of 1,10m showjumping, 90cm eventing, Open showing, Open equitation and preliminary dressage, being a multiple winner in all disciplines.

During the year of 2011, Polo was chosen with her top eventing mount at the time, Choc, to represent her province in the national Junior championships. Then, during 2012, she was chosen to represent her province again in three disciplines – showing, eventing and showjumping – on Moonfire, Bronze and Finola respectively.

She was also the winner of the South African Equestrian Association jumping challenge – a particular competition held in every province to determine an overall national winner – in both the 1m and 1,30m divisions on Moonfire and Finola.

Polo finished her Junior career in 2012 to begin an Adult competitive career in 2013, as well as beginning professional horse training and taking on paid rides. Her goal is to continue to produce top-class horses, and one day compete in the Olympics.

When she is not in the saddle, Polo spends her time writing, watching anime, and of course playing on Ponybox.
