The Pony Club Training structure encourages members to take tests which enables them to learn progressively about horse and pony care and riding.
The tests are taken at recommended ages and are designed with certain objectives in mind – see below for the order in which tests are taken.
Efficiency Tests are booked differently depending on the level being taken:
E, D, D+, Road Rider, C and C+ Tests
These are organised by Branches and Centres. In 2020 we hope to still hold 1 test weekend. 19th/20th September.
A friendly, relaxed test assessment day will be arranged beforehand. This day is so we can identify any areas you may need a bit of help with to get through your next test. Test rallies are open to all whether you wish to do a test or not.
B, B+, Lungeing and AH Tests
These are organised by your club’s Area Representative.
Training is co-ordinated by Alison Williams – 07507 837 433.
At present the horse and care sections are being completed online via Area 9.
These are booked centrally via The Pony Club Office. Details on the nomination process for 2020 A Tests will be available shortly.
