A & AH

AH and A Test

The Pony Club A Test is the highest Test within The Pony Club structure. It is recognised worldwide and is very much sought after! Both tests are modular, but can only be passed with Honours if taken as a whole.

The Pony Club A Test

All applications to take the A Test must be sent to Tracey Sayer, these are then forwarded onto the Pony Club Office, this must be accompanied by the A Test Nomination Form, signed by our Branch DC.

The Pony Club A Horsecare Test

All applications to take the AH horsecare test must be sent to Tracey Sayer, these are then forwarded onto the Pony Club Office, this must be accompanied by the AH Test Nomination Form, signed by our Branch DC.

Please get your application forms in early, even if you don’t intend to do the Test until the following year, as it gives us an idea of how many people are interested. The revision and training for the AH is quite hard, so don’t try and do it in the middle of all your other exams! You will also have to have taken your Lungeing Test and passed your B Horsecare and BHS Riding and Road Safety Test or the Pony Club Road Rider Test.

Dates and venues for the AH and A test can be found on the Pony Club website, please check and make sure you let me know your choice. Also check the Area 8 website for any suitable training.

The AH test requires a level of maturity and confidence that comes with experience. Often candidates need to go and spend some time in a professional yard in order to see different types of horses and ways of doing things. Candidates will also need to be confident with lungeing and ride and lead, which is often difficult to do on your own, or if you only have one horse available.

Workbooks for the AH test are available from Tish Adams (tish@moat-farm.co.uk), and you will need to read around the subject from the reading list recommended on the AH Test Syllabus.
