are the benefits of Pony Club Membership, and how can we help you? We
want to broaden your knowledge of horse and pony care, make you feel
a part of a world wide organisation which has given so many members
great fun and help you achieve your goals in the equestrian world, whatever
they may be. These benefits include:-
Club Tests (Standards of Efficiency) which create enthusiasm and ensure
progress, are designed to improve your riding ability and knowledge
of horse and pony care. Starting with the "D" Test, you can progress
through the "D+" and up to "C" Standard. In addition, when taking the
"C" Test candidates are required to pass their Riding & Road Safety
Certificate. This ensures that, in the event of riding on the road,
you are aware of the correct procedures.
Earnsdale Farm Riding School Instructor will be helping you achieve
the required standard to pass these tests and can answer any questions
you may have. Having passed a Test, you can wear the appropriate coloured
felt behind your badge to mark your success.
Club Achievement Badges
cover a range of basic equestrian and countryside topics and, as each
one is passed, the appropriate cloth badge can be sewn onto your Pony
Club Sweatshirt. A separate leaflet is available from the riding school.
Instructor and your parents, will be able to help you learn what is
required to gain your Achievement Badges, some of the subjects may already
be taught in school.
