Synopsis: Brittany Halstead founded Replay Polo in 2016 after her own, extraordinary experience with a polo pony. In 2014, while riding and training in Argentina with Olympic riders and high goal polo trainers, Halstead was in a near fatal car accident. She suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma for two weeks. She miraculously recovered! A few months after she was discharged from the hospital, Luis Ansola, professional polo player/manager of Louisville Polo Club, gave her a retired polo pony to help her heal. This polo pony, named Fanta, became the first Replay Polo pony and started Halstead on her journey to connect these amazing horses to people in need. Her assessment is that polo ponies have the best demeanor of them all – gentle ground manners, desensitized and very rideable (neck rein, direct/indirect rein and smooth transitions) – that makes them the most suitable option for new careers.
