  • To clarify any confusion regards rallies and Area qualification requirements. This quote from the Rule Book should clarify things.
    For Area Competitions and above, Members must have been to a minimum of three working rallies since the previous 1st July, one of which must be in the current year, to be eligible to represent their Branch.
    A working Rally is one at which instruction is given and which is open to all Members of the Branch within the age range for which it is intended. It may be either a mounted or dismounted Rally. A dismounted Rally is usually for horse and pony care training. Camp counts as one Working Rally. Team practices or coaching sessions do not qualify as Working Rallies.

 

  • Tests past in 2016 – Well done to all the children who passed their tests this year,  Tests Passed 2016
    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.  You can download the Test training system to see what order they should be taken in.
