The Basics Of Polocrosse
 By Minnie   •   16th May 2011   •   4,576 views   •   14 comments
The sport of polocrosse is an interesting and thrilling combination of the Native American game of lacrosse and the sport of horseback riding. Polocrosse originated in Persia hundreds of years ago, but the modern form of the sport was created in the 1930s in Australia.

Today, people throughout the world play the sport. All breeds of horses are accepted, but speed, agility, and swift reaction time are qualities that people look for in polocrosse horses.

Polocrosse fields are 60 yards long and 160 yards wide. All players can catch, throw, and run with the ball at any time. However, only the player in the number one position can score. Teams score points by shooting the ball through the other team's goal posts. More information on polocrosse can be found at

Below is a video of the United States Polocrosse Squad competing against Australia at the 2011 Polocrosse World Cup.
