Located in The Plains, Virginia, Destination Polo is looking for a summer working student who has a passion for horses and an interest in learning about and playing polo. Great position for a college aged student on summer break. We have a string of around 25 polo ponies that are used in polo school and game and practice rentals. This is a great opportunity to work in the polo industry, meet some amazing people, and have the chance to learn to play polo. No polo experience required, but horse experience is.
We are looking for a motivated person to help our manager with all aspects of the business. Duties include but are not limited to: normal barn chores, regular horse maintenance (grooming, feeding, etc), exercising & singling ponies, grooming at games for clients, farm work (fence boards, throwing hay, etc), and having a good time!
This position is a "work to ride" position where you will have the opportunity to receive lessons from a professional player during the week (usually 2-3 times a week), stick and ball time, and potentially playing chukkers in team practices. A stipend may be available for the right person. You are also welcome to groom for other players if we don't have enough clients at practices/games, and those usually pay around $50-60 a game. You'll also have virtually unlimited access to all the polo clubs in the area, so if you've ever wanted to see lots of polo games, this is a great chance to!
Position is very flexible, can be part time or full time. Housing is not necessarily provided, but there are options available if needed.
18+ years old with a valid drivers license and must be physically fit enough to work outside during the summer with horses.
Please email Harleigh Humphries at with your resume.
