Professional Riding: Polocrosse.

I first came across this sport when I did my Certificate II in Horse Studies in high school - a couple of the students played and brought their polocrosse sticks (like a lacrosse racket) and cantered around the large indoor arena, throwing and catching a ball with their rackets. Looked like fun! But way too much coordination required for me!

While in South Africa I came to be on a five day trail with a woman who played on the Australian team for awhile and she could only sing praises of the sport.

Polocrosse is truly Australian made and is a combination of polo, lacrosse and netball.
