Six Pony Club members tried and PASSED their B test RIDING in Radfords on Monday August 30th.

During this test, riders must show School movements on their own horse and then they have to ride a different horse and explain how the horse goes.  They then change tack if necessary, complete a Show Jumping round and ride a short XC course.

Five of the riders had already passed their B Care, so by passing their Riding they completed their B test. Riders were :-

  • Jasmin Teague – (Tanatside)
  • Connie garvey – (Tanatside)
  • Sophie Williams – (Berwyn & Dee)
  • Jess Roe – (Berwyn & Dee)
  • Tasmyn Green – (Gwynedd)
  • Ben Carke  – (Wynnstay) Riding only



All 8 candidates passed their B  Care Test today near Ruthin.

They were :-

  • Jessica Roe (Berwyn & Dee)
  • Connie Garvey (Tanatside)
  • Sophie Williams (Berwyn & Dee)
  • Ellie Jones (ChHS)
  • Eleanor Tomkinson (E.Ch)
  • Macey Richmond- Guy (E.Ch)
  • Emily Entwhistle (ChHN)
  • Holly Wharfe (ChHN)

They have done most of their training on Zoom with different coaches but had a practical day before the test too.  They have all worked hard.  Well done.

“There are no UCAS points for B test or any other Pony Club tests, and there never has been.

There is mapping between the Pony Club tests and BHS qualifications as shown at although this may change following the revamp of the BHS exam system.  Currently the B test  candidates who have achieved the complete B Test and hold the Pony Club Lungeing Certificate or EQL Level 2 lunge a horse under supervision (a unit of the Stage 2 qualification) are eligible to apply for direct entry to BHS Stage 3 and the PTT, so potentially UCAS points are possible this way (EQL Level 3 Certificate in BHS Preliminary Teaching of Horse Riding (QCF) 2017 Tariff score: 16).”
