Jada joined our team July 2023, courtesy of the Cornell Polo Team. Jade is a retired polo pony who played for many years in a well known team in Connecticut. She is very gentle, enjoys people, and her new friend Buddy. Her full name is Carcajada, which means “burst of laughter”.
Although we don’t know if Combate and Jada were born in Argentina, they have Spanish names for a reason. Argentina is one of the most popular exporters of the Argentine Polo Pony. These are a unique mix of the Argentine Criollo and Thoroughbred horse breeds. The Argentine Polo Pony is highly sought after because of its speed, stamina, endurance, but also calm and obedient nature. They are very sensitive to the rider’s signals and commands. We are lucky to have Combate and Jada as part of our programs. Thank you Cornell Polo!
