Badges

The Pony Club offers Mini Achievement Badges for younger Members’ as well as both Equine and Non- Equine Achievement Badges. Both types of  badge will help you to learn a wide range of skills like first-aid, farming, map reading, saddlery, road safety and grooming.

There are 22 Mini Achievement Badges, 35 Equine Achievement Badges, 14 Non Equine Achievement Badges, 9 Introduction to Competition Badges associated with each Discipline and 9 Competition Badges associated with each discipline.

Tests

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.

We run Pony Club Efficiency Tests throughout the year. Children have the opportunity to take their E and D Test at Junior Camp. These range from the new ‘E’ Test to the ‘A’  Test and include the Riding and Road Safety Test.  Details can be found LINK TO ACHIEVEMENT BADGES ON PARENT PAGE. Check our calendar to see when the next tests will be running.
