Area Qualifying dates

Dates for the Area Qualifiers will be available here shortly. 

Area Qualifier Dates

The quiz will be run as in previous years with two sections, with one Branch and one Centre qualifying for the final from each Area, both answering the same questions.

Teams

Teams will be made up of:
• 1 Member 12 years & under
• 1 Member 14 years & under
• 1 Member 16 years & under
• 1 Member of any age
All ages will be taken from the 1st January 2017.
N.B. A Team may consist of four Members under the age of 12 if you wish. In this instance, the Team will be asked to nominate which Member will answer the more advanced questions. One AH Test holder in each Team is allowed to take part in each National Quiz Team.

Round Titles

In no particular order;
*The Pony Club & Ex Pony Club Equestrian Celebrities
*Non Equine Achievement Badges
*Competitive Disciplines within the Pony Club
*Spanish Riding School
*Keeping A Pony at Grass, Worming & Paddock Maintenance (Pairs – Junior’s & Senior’s)
*Practical Round - The Tack Room (Individual)
*Picture Round – What is this?

POINTS: There will be 30 points available for each round (15 questions per round), therefore 2 points per correct question.  The winning Branch and Centre teams will be the team with the highest number of points.  In case of equality, total points gained in The Pony Club round will be used first to decide the final placings.

Also, once again, there will be a competition for the best homemade display or collage from each team representing their Branch or Centre, to be judged on the day.
