Polo School

Franshoek Farm and Polo School offers the unique opportunity to receive
excellent polo tuition on an incredible site, tucked away in the Highlands of the
Eastern Free State of South Africa. Locals lovingly refer to this as “The Valley.”


Give yourself a break from the busy mainstream and allow yourself to return to nature in our quiet mountainous retreat. We’ll make sure you get the polo lessons you are after, while you let your curiosity do the rest.


Walking and hiking trails, bass fishing dams, a cave and waterfalls provide a natural setting beckoning to be explored.

Work to Play Programme

Long-term guests can work on the farm in exchange for chukkas.

The work may involve exercise and pony care, grooming, field and fence maintenance, cleaning and repairing tack, painting, removal of alien plants, office work or catering.

Let us know your area of expertise, and we will let you know if we can use your skills.
