Josie Vidic

USPA Certified Polo Instructor, Level 1

Littleton, CO

Josie has been a member of the USPA for 13 years and earned her CPI Certification in 2016. She grew up riding on her family’s farm and participating in local riding club, which featured Polocrosse. Josie’s first polo job was working for D Bar T Polo Team under Dennis Trescott, Simon Martineau, and Santiago Wulff. From there, she began helping Simon with group lessons in exchange for private lessons. This segued into working in Argentina seasonally from 2003-2005 where she worked for Federico Teves of El Relincho Polo. Josie had the opportunity to do everything from breaking horses to training young strings and playing. After Argentina, Josie played with a Reserve National Championship Team at Colorado State University and was named a Regional All Star and a National All Star. Her teaching career started in 2004, teaching youth and adults at her home club Willow Creek Polo Club in Elizabeth, Colorado, which she would later own and operate her school from. Today Josie works as a contract instructor for the USPA Free Clinic Program, is a NYTS Tournament manager, and teaches private lessons out of her home base in Weatherford, Texas. Josie has won many USPA Tournaments, Best Play Pony Awards, and is a Level III English Instructor through the Certified Horsemanship Association.

What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?
“Some of my favorite memories include teaching new college players while helping them prepare for Varsity Intercollegiate polo try outs. Each of these individuals succeeded in making the Varsity polo team. I’ve also enjoyed teaching youth and seeing their progression as they move into NYTS tournament play. Overall, I love watching people smile when they learn something new. I enjoy sharing my passion for the sport with others, just as others have shared their passion with me. I also have fun teaching horses the sport and helping them progress into their careers as polo ponies.”
