Talking Polocross!!

so i was wondering what all of you think about polocross. have you ever tried it? i tried it for the first time this past summer and i absolutely love it!! though that could be because the two sports im serious about are horseback riding and lacrosse, so the two combined is like heaven for me. haha. but yeah, i'd like to hear what you all think and any stories you may have. does your area have a team? stuff like that :]

Great fun. Horses love it. Haven't played competitively though.
One of our horses cheats when he plays. He hangs onto the oppositions racquet with his teeth when in a line out and he stands on the ball so you can't get it.

I've played a fair bit. My little arab is awesome at it, and my old ASH was amazing, he would just barge everyone out of the way, lol. My new ASG is still learning, he is fine with the stick but he is scared of the ball lol. He doesn't like things moving on the ground, if it goes underneath him he tries to jump it, lol. I was planning on joining my local club, Hall Polocrosse, this year, but ended up not having enough spare time, so maybe next year.

haha yea. this past summer i started baby lightning with it and he was great with the stick, but if someone tried to pass the ball to me he'd try to dodge out of the way. it was hilarious. he eventually got used to it though :]
