TESTS AND ACHIEVEMENT BADGES

The Pony Club training structure encourages members to take tests which enable them to learn progressively about horse and pony care and riding.  These tests are taken at recommended ages and are designed with certain objectives in mind.   You can download  The Pony Club Test Training Scheme to see the order that tests should be taken

Pony Club Efficiency Tests – listed below is the syllabus for each of the Pony Club tests:

If you are interested in training for the above contact Gemma Hill – all training dates advertised in newsletter

Achievement Badges:

The Pony Club offers Mini Achievement Badges for younger Members’ as well as both equine and non-equine Achievement Badges. Both types of achievement badge will help you to learn a wide range of skills like first-aid, farming, map reading, saddlery, road safety and grooming.

If any parents have particular skills relating to any of these badges (particularly the non-equine ones) and would like to be involved with helping to teach our members please contact Philippa.

As a Branch we hold unmounted rallies where members can come along (particularly in the winter months) and take part in training for some of the Achievement badges.    We also try to incorporate badges into some of our mounted rallies for our younger members.  Check out the current newsletter for dates.

Members who attend out Summer Camp for 10 and unders also have an opportunity to do some of the badges.

We encourage all of our members to do the Road Safety badges as these are required before some of the Efficiency Tests can be taken.
