Polo Player Weathervanes are among our most popular horse designs. They have been installed as far away as Perth, Australia, Bogota, Colombia and many locations across the United States. Optional gold leaf works very well with this weathervane, accenting the intricate details of the tail wrappings, saddle blanket, leg wraps, and reins. We also gold leafed the rider’s arms and face to create a contrast his clothing. Gilding adds a bright contrast that will last for decades as the copper and brass of the piece darken and patina in the weathering process.

A number of our customers have sent us photos which we then use to make minor individualized modifications to the basic design. For example, we can make the polo player female or use gold or palladium leaf to match the markings of a particular favorite horse. All we need are photos of the horse and/or rider and we will use them to rework our drawings and transform the weathervane into a literal portrait of the polo player and his or her horse.

We also make a Version 1 of our Polo Pony with Rider Weathervane. The slightly higher price of this Version 2 of our Polo Rider Weathervane reflects additional labor to create the piece.

One customer who ordered a Polo Player Weather Vane, to represent his active participation in this regal sport, also ordered one of our Jumping Horse Weathervane with a female rider for his second cupola, as his wife is also an accomplished equestrian. Both of their passions are represented on their new barn.

The term polo pony is purely traditional and the mount is actually a full-sized horse. A good ‘pony’ should have docility, speed, endurance, and intelligence and is thought to represent 60 to 75 percent of the player’s skill. Thoroughbreds were originally the only breeds used, but in the contemporary sport mixed breeds are common. Many of the best polo ponies are bred in Argentina and the United States. Polo training begins at age four and is about six months to two years in duration. Ponies reach their peak at around age 10, but without any accidents they could have the ability to play until they are 18 to 20 years of age.
