Polo players nationwide choose to donate their ponies to the Garrison Forest Polo Program. We offer an amazing home to ponies who are looking to slow down from their high goal or strictly outdoor polo lifestyle. Garrison Forest polo ponies receive intensive care with daily feeding, turnout, a structured fitness schedule and all required veterinary care. Ponies routinely get visits from Lower School students on daily walks who come and feed them treats! Even high goal horses adapt and love being utilized in the Lower School lesson program. Ponies are generally used for all divisions: Lower School through our competitive Upper School players. If you're interested in donating your polo pony to the GFS Polo Program, please continue reading.
