Tests and Training

The Pony’ Club Training structure encourages all members to take efficiency tests (E to A) which enable them to learn progressively about horse and pony care and riding.  The training is fun and much of it is covered at working rallies and camps.  The E test is optional , but all the other tests must be taken in sequence.  However older riders who have joined may start with the D+ test. For full details of the tests visit the Tests Section of the Pony Club National Website.

It’s worth noting that C+ Efficiency tests have been used as the  ridden section of several members Sports Science GCSE & skills or physical section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award!!
