The best feeding and care of horses is top priority and this aspect of our operation is the very essence of successful polo! Polo ponies, like athletes, need healthy and energetic food plus comfortable accommodations. They need the right kind of training and they need it consistently. At the same time, horses are social animals and have individual needs. Our team appreciates this reality and is there to provide the best care and solutions for you and your horse.
The club offers over 40 boxes, and a wide range of paddocks, corrals and green grass pastures on its 30 hectares. Services in all cases include quality hay and water.
– Pension “box/park” where the horse sleeps in the box stall at night but spends the day in a nice field, and the team does all mucking out and feeding.
– Box stall only: appropriate for “groomed horses” where the service only includes the box stall but no mucking out and feeding. Outside fields are available for use.
– Pension park: Horses live permanently outside in designated fenced parcs that are equipped with fresh water and “free service” hay.

The club welcomes private grooms and may offer grooms temporary accomodation for a fee. A “pooled” groom service is available for horse owners having fewer horses or not requiring extensive horse training. Our team of predominantly Argentine grooms grew up on horse farms and are passionate about their work. They insure the best horse care and training- just ask our members!

The club also works closely with Estancia San Martin, a very old polo club and breeding operation in Argentina from where, over the past years, we have imported nearly 50 horses.

operation “Haras” Mas de St Remy, France
Our typical cycle is 5-6 months of wintering in St Remy before and after the polo season. This site is particularly well suited for the winter months as the climate is warmer and dryer and the soil is sandy and drains well. There is a permanent staff presence during the winter months. The club offers horse owners special rates for consolidated transport to and from St Remy for wintering.
Starting in 2016 with the acquisition of our pure quarter horse stallion “Chiccio” we began the breeding activity in St Remy. The broodmares are all polo horses that are either retired or with career ending injuries. We now have 3 beautiful foals: Remy, Mystica, Sandy and more are on the way for 2019! We invite our members to to invest in young foals. Please inquire with the club.
The club owns several transport vehicles including: 9-horse lorry, trailer for 4 horses “Fautras”, a large 6-horse “gooseneck” trailer as well as a Dodge Ram 1500, a Land Rover Discovery and a Defender fleet for towing. We are experienced in the organisation of transport using own or external resources for both short-haul and long-haul transport.
