Centre Proprietors and Coaches


Members can learn a range of skills through the popular Achievement Badge scheme and gain sew-on badges to prove their knowledge. Topics range from ‘Bandages and Rugs’ and ‘Points of the Horse’ through to ‘Road Safety’, ‘Plaiting’ and ‘Saddlery’. There is also have a range of Mini Badges for the youngest riders to do!

Pony Club Efficiency Tests provide an excellent basis for any equine enthusiast. Beginning with the E Test where Members learn the fundamental skills, progressing up to the much sought after A Test.

The Pony Club Tests and Achievement Badge schemes provide Coaches with a good structure to build their Pony Club sessions around. We also have a range of Progressive Tests that can be used as ongoing assessment for riders, preparing them for the main Efficiency Tests. Quizzes and competitions can be added to a Centre’s diary of activities to complement the ridden and stable management training.

Centre Members are able to take part in all Pony Club competitions from Dressage and Show jumping to Mounted Games and Tetrathlon if the Centre is able to assist them. Horse and Pony Care and the National Quiz are two events where Centres can take part without the need to transport horses.
