Pony Club Tests


During COVID, we have been running zoom sessions taught by Harriet Allan, these have been a great way to keep in touch with each other and get a that important training on stable management.

An AMAZING 38 members passed tests during the Easter Holidays! 

 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 taken at recommended ages and are designed with certain objectives in mind, to help Members become practical and knowledgeable riders, proficient in caring for horses and ponies.

C and C+ training will be run (one a month on a Saturday afternoon provisionally)  through the winter with an aim of the test dates at Easter or Early May.

B test training will be run along side the C+ training if there is anyone wishing to train for it. â€˜B’ tests are run by our Pony Club area.

E, D and D+ training and tests will be run on one day in August, hopefully around the time of Mini Camp.


C test upwards you can do the test in 2 parts now.  Riding and Horse and pony care.  You can go through just the care route or just the riding route right the way to AH/ A test.

The aim is to run the training and test regularly at these times of year which will allow all members to plan ahead.

 Anyone of the correct level may attend the training, however, if the Trainer believes that you are not ready to take the test or part of the test this time around then you will not be entered for all or that part.

Venues and cost will depend on numbers.
