World-renowned polo player, Pelon Stirling, 10-goal polo player, explained why most players choose to retire their mounts. “If the horse has not played extremely well and needs to be retired because of age, an injury, or has just played enough polo; it becomes complicated for us to find a very good home for them. The horses deserve to live a good life and it is important for us to be certain that the horse will be taken good care of.” So ReplayPolo does just that… Finds retired polo ponies a very good home!
Executive Director, Brittany Halstead grew up with horses and has worked in both the hunter/jumper and polo worlds. Meanwhile, her heart has always led her to reach out to help people and horses. Twelve years ago, she earned her certification as a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Instructor and is a certified PATH Mentor.
ReplayPolo began shortly after Ms. Halstead miraculously recovered from a severe traumatic brain injury and coma. She sustained this injury while a passenger in a fatal car accident in Argentina in 2014.
