Pony Club Efficiency Tests

Members are encouraged to take tests as these are widely recognised and are very useful for anyone interested in an equine related career. They are well described on the main Pony Club website. They are, of course, optional!

Finally please remember that booking a rally is a commitment against which the Pony Club will book an instructor/venue and incur the associated cost. I hope you will understand that the fee is not refundable or waived unless the rider or pony is truly lame and can produce an appropriate certificate. Deciding it’s wet and the sales at Bluewater are more attractive isn’t a valid excuse!
