All training and tests to be held at Salmonfield (NE47 0HQ) weather permitting!


Road Rider achievement badge – This badge must be achieved before you can take your C test.

October 2nd and 9th – Wednesday 6pm-7.30pm – training on foot – This is compulsory so if you are unable to attend both training evenings you will not be allowed to take the mounted assessment. The Pony club are saying that the junior road rider book and DVD are outdated therefore you are encouraged to read the BHS Ride Safe book and young person’s highway code. Please bring a notebook and pen to these sessions.


October 13th  Sunday AM – Ridden assessment


D test –


October 13th – Sunday AM . We will not be running training for this test but if you have any concerns please contact me and make sure you have run through the D test syllabus before attending.


D+ test-


September 29th – Sunday 2pm-4pm. We would like to offer a training session for those who feel they would like on. This is not compulsory so if you are happy and confident you know what is expected then that is fine. Please read the D+ syllabus carefully, ready your pony club horse manual and practice before the test!


October 13th – Sunday PM.  Start time to be confirmed but hope to be 1.30pm


C test –

(TBC) October 19th – Saturday – C test training.  We would like to offer both a riding and stable management training session. We would strongly recommend that you attend this session as this will give you an opportunity to check the standard and that we are all confident you are at the level required.


November 1st – Friday 10am onwards – C test


Please can those on the list confirm whether or not you are able to. For anyone who is not on the list but may now wish to join please do let me know.

Please do look at the different test syllabuses before attending, you will find them on this link.


Many thanks
