Blue Cross Horse & Pony Care Competition

**NEW** Friendly Minis section available to run at the Areas this year… check out our new concept below!

Horse and Pony Care is an integral part of The Pony Club Championships held at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire and features Teams of three Pony Club Member who demonstrate their knowledge and practical horsemanship skills taken from The Pony Club Efficiency Test cards over a number of rounds.

Over the years it has become clear how much dedication and hard work Members put in to both the Qualifiers and the Championships, and it is great to see the high standard of knowledge Members have about the care, management and welfare of horses and ponies.

For 2018 we have given Organisers the option to run a ‘Minis Section’ at their Area Qualifier. At the moment this is a friendly competition only, but if it is popular enough we hope to see it at the Championships very soon. Ask your Area Organiser for more details!
