Meet Our Ponies

Meet Our Ponies

Newport Polo's lesson program will introduce polo students to a string of polo ponies that regularly play in the Newport International Polo Series. These ponies are thoroughbred horses that have been trained to play polo and can adapt to each player's level of skill, from beginner to advanced.

Amarillo

Army Full BodyAmarillo “Army” is a 21 year old American OTTB mare from Amarillo, Texas. She is one of the last horses trained by Dan Keating in his golden age of horse making. Her nickname was given for her military level of intelligence and “secret ops” way of playing polo. Army began polo training at 4 years old and has been playing in the Polo Series for 12 years. She is known as “The Smartest Horse in The Barn” and is always untying herself and setting her friends free. Although a barn favorite, she is truly the Queen of Darkness and Mischief.  

Arnold Full BodyArnold

Arnold is a 15 year old OTTB gelding from Suffolk Downs Race Track in Boston where he raced under the name "Hi Tide Boy." His muscular body type and stocky build resemble that of an American quarter horse. Arnold came home from the track at 4 years old with a gentle, sweet, and loving personality. Since Arnold’s muscular physique and sun-kissed chestnut coat are unparalleled, he got named after the movie The Terminator featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger! Although he is definitely the boss of the herd, Arnold’s demeanor towards humans has been nothing but gentle and kind. Due to his size and strength Arnold has proved himself an excellent mount for the larger players that learn to play polo but also has earned numerous Best Playing Pony awards in the Newport International Polo Series where he is quite popular amongst the visiting teams as a strong, sturdy, athletic ride! 

Cocoa Full BodyCocoa

Cocoa won her 1st 'Best Playing Pony' title in 2014, playing for Scotland. This bay thoroughbred is a former racehorse from Suffolk Downs, and coming into her prime as a polo pony.

Ella Full BodyGraciella

Gatsby Full BodyGatsby

Gatsby is a thoroughbred from the Suffolk Downs racetrack in Boston. He has a flawless gate, agreed by all as the best “riding” horse in the Newport string. The Great Gatsby’s elegant stride and his occasional air catching leaps make him an alluring double-edged sword in the game. Gatsby prefers a quiet and patient player but strong rider for the perfect duet.

Pepper Full BodyPepper

Pepper is an American thoroughbred off the Pen National racetrack. She was 3 years old when she hopped off the trailer at our doorstep and was considered an “easy make” in terms of her willingness to be trained for polo with outstanding natural talent. She began playing in the international series at the age of 5. 10 years of playing and numerous best playing pony awards seems only fitting for a horse like Pepper; who got her Spice themed name after our oldest and most revered horse, Ginger- the queen of Newport Polo.

Persia Full BodyPersia

Persia came to us as a 4-year-old off the race track at Suffolk Downs in Boston. As a strong-willed, natural athlete, Persia took quickly to polo training and showed great tranquility and temperance at the start. It was said by few that she would never be more than a quiet school horse. In her second year of training Persia’s hot-headed, fiery personality developed. Persia's hot thoroughbred competitivity has propelled her to one of the top 3 polo ponies in the Newport string, very far from a simple school horse.

Zoilo is a popular choice among our students. Little do they know, this bay thoroughbred gelding from Argentina had a polo career in England in prestigious events including the Queen's Cup, and Gold Cup, along with playing in the French Deauville circuit before coming to the US. He debuted in the Newport International Polo Series in 2013 and became known for his easy handling and speed. Even though he's an international horse of mystery, Zoillo still stays true to his Argentine roots with a classic Gaucho name meaning 'Life'.
