Synonymous in Australian polo, the Victorian Polo Academy facilitates up to 6 polo teams and 60 horses per weekend – competing nationally over the course of the Australian polo season.

The Academy owned by Luke O’Leary is based in Lethbridge Victoria, home to the Geelong Polo Club. At the property there are currently 3 professional male players, a full time polo manager and 2 polo interns / riders.

Applicants / workers must have a good attitude, be eager to learn, generally fit, well presented and social.

- Riding experience preferable
- Easy going nature a must
- Social

Employees work 6 day weeks, Tuesday through Sunday (with tournaments on over the weekends).
A good work ethic is a must in order to get the most out of your time at the VPA. Hard work however is rewarded with the opportunity to experience all the benefits of working for a professional polo yard – with regular parties, social evenings and dinners.

Quarters: Purpose built quarters have been setup for grooms in a shared house arrangement on the property. Although basic the accommodation is clean and comfortable with all the regular comforts including TV’s, DVD and Wi-Fi.
Grooms buy and cook their own food day to day. They however will have access to a car if they want to go out or leave the farm at any stage.
