We are running a C and C+ Test at half term, on Thursday 27th October, with training before hand. I attach a list of members who we’d be keen to come for training and the test, anyone who is not on the list who would like to be involved, or who is 12yrs or over and yet to take a PC test ie D+, please get in touch. Some members may benefit from the training this year in preparation for their test next year. If you would be interested please read further and reply to Jane Uloth by email email@example.com by next Tuesday, 20th September.
Members take their PC tests following regular PC riding and care instruction and their experience of caring for their ponies; they are a much valued achievement. The test follows riding throughout the summer, combined with the short course, so members should be prepared for an enjoyable test experience. The tests are intended to improve their knowledge, skills and build confidence. Drawing on their own experience and some preparation at home is always a benefit too.
The 2016 syllabus for the PC tests can be found on the main Pony Club website under Training & Tests. All PC members should have an up to date Manual of Horsemanship (14th Edition) available from the online shop @ £13.95. This is an invaluable publication!
C test (green felt) is usually taken aged 12 yrs or over, members should hold their PC Road Rider Achievement Badge (round fabric badge)
C+ test (pink felt) is usually taken aged 14 yrs or over, members should hold their PC Road Rider Test (metal badge)
