Polo fans in The Villages and worldwide are still buzzing about the match. Villagers in the Horse ’N’ Around Club find this group provides fun events: trail rides through Ocala National Forest; educational field trips to area horse farms; carriage-driving lessons at a nearby ranch; picnics and more. The club’s only requirement to join is to be a Villager who adores horses. Villagers in an eight-week clown class at The Villages Lifelong Learning College discover that clowning isn’t just being silly. There’s a lot to learn, from the history of clowns, etiquette, character development and appearance. Residents find this challenge a fulfilling journey.
