PonyPrep short-listed for an E-learning award

The Pony Club and E-learning Innovation specialists HT2 are delighted to announce that, for the second year running, The Pony Club’s E Learning site has been shortlisted for the 2012 E-learning awards run by e.learning age; this year in the ‘Best E Learning Project – not for profit’ category.

Launched at Olympia Horse Show on December 16th 2010, PonyPrep enjoyed over 1000 users signing up in the initial 48 hours live, and has gone on to enjoy over two million page views and regularly welcomes over 23,000 registered users to the site to practise for Pony Club Tests.

PonyPrep takes its content from The Pony Club’s best selling publication, The Manual of Horsemanship, presenting it as quizzes, videos and interactions that allow users to learn and build their virtual stable yard as they do so.  Development in 2012 included the expansion of the content to cover the D and D+ Test level, as well as more interactive features such as ‘ClubHouse’ where Members can catch up on the latest news, read blogs and enter competitions. The virtual Blue Cross Re-homing Centre has also been a huge hit, with learners able to collect virtual PonyPounds by working through the training content, which enables them to take part in the virtual gymkhana and adopt virtual Blue Cross Companion ponies!

“PonyPrep truly is an attribute to The Pony Club’s learning system” comments Judy Edwards, Chief Executive of The Pony Club. “It embodies everything about what the The Pony Club stands for, in fantastic progressive training whilst having fun.  We are very proud to be engaging thousands of young equestrian enthusiasts in this interactive way, and really pleased that the site has once again been recognised for its achievements”.
The winners of the E-Learning Awards will be announced at the Awards Gala Evening in London, 8th November 2012.
