Horsemanship (Blue Cross Horse & Pony Care Competition and D&H Pony Club Quiz)

What is the Blue Cross Horse & Pony Care Competition?

The competition features teams of three Members who demonstrate their knowledge and practical horsemanship skills taken from the Pony Club Efficiency Tests over a number of rounds.

Teams compete at their Area Competition with the aim to qualify for the Championships.

Teams make their way around different ‘stations’, each of which will comprise of a different theory or practical based topic. Ten minutes are spent at each ‘station’, during which time Members are asked a series of questions to be marked by the Assessor.

Points will be allocated per section, as well as for the manner in which Teams approach the competition. One round will be chosen, at random, as the ‘tie-breaker’. In the event of a tie, the Team with the highest score in that particular round will be declared the winners.

What is the D&H Pony Club Quiz

The Pony Club Quiz is sponsored by Dodson and Horrell (D&H).

The Pony Club quiz is an inclusive competition for our ridden and non-ridden Centre and Branch members. It provides a chance for members to test their equestrian knowledge in a fun and friendly team environment. Working with D&H who are experts in the field of animal health, nutrition and well-being will help The Pony Club Quiz to stay relevant and current in an Equestrian World that is continuously progressing.

Organizer and Trainer of both the Competition & Quiz is: Sarah Woodward
