 Efficiency tests. We are currently scheduling dates for 2018 for Pony Club Efficiency Tests and Ride and Road Safety for all members.   Dates have been organised for B+ training.  This is open to all members over sixteen years of age and who have sat B test. B+ Test is a non-compulsory test but is an excellent “stepping stone” halfway between B and A Test.  This is a one part, ridden only, test with no stable management. Please see ‘news’ page for details. B and B+ test and training dates have been issued by Fiona Morrison.
We are arranging C Test Exams to be held over the summer. More information regarding C test can be found on the Pony Club website http://www.pcuk.org  under training and tests. This is open to all members but the the recommended minimum age is 11. 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 designed with certain objectives in mind, to help Members become practical and knowledgeable riders, proficient in caring for horses and ponies.  If members are unable to attend but interested in sitting C Test please email Fiona and you will be notified when other dates are scheduled. Ponies will be required for these dates. Venue: Collessie . Instructor: Laura Anderson. If you have any questions please contact Fiona Morrison on fionahmorrison@yahoo.com or 07789847553 (outwith office hours).
 
We are running a dressage league throughout the winter to help improve test riding, and points will be awarded for placings and taking part. Dates and schedules to follow, but the first one is Sunday 21st October at Netherton, Nr Abernethy. Each test will be judged and then feedback will be given straight after. All ages and stages welcome. We would encourage anyone wishing to take part in Pony Club Areas next year to attend the dressage leagues, lessons and the David Harland jumping lessons throughout the winter.
