Blue Cross Horse & Pony Care Competition

Area Qualifier dates listed 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 Members who demonstrate their knowledge and practical horsemanship skills taken from The Pony Club Efficiency Test cards over a number of rounds. The 2017 Blue Cross Horse and Pony Care finals will be held on Saturday the 19th August and Sunday the 20th August.

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.

The Blue Cross are extremely generous sponsors of this competition, and this is their elevent consecutive year of sponsorship. For the last few years they have also had an education tent at the Championships for spectators and competitors to get some hands on practice!
