PONY CLUB MEMBERS ARE THE FUTURE EQUINE CUSTODIANS – Let’s make sure they are suitably equipped with the knowledge their horses deserve.

The Pony Club training structure encourages members to take tests throughout their Pony Club career enabling them to learn progressively about horse and pony care and riding.  The tests are normally taken at recommended ages and are designed with certain criteria.  Each test is awarded a different colour felt to be placed under their Pony Club badge.
