AH Test

Recommended Minimum Age: 17. Only those 16 years or over are eligible for AH Test.

The Pony Club A Test is the highest Test within The Pony Club structure. It is recognised world wide and is very much sought after!  The AH Test is the Stable Management phase of the A Test.  Those who have passed B (horse & pony care) Test only and have been recommended after an assessment by an AH assessor can also take the Test.

The AH Test is divided into four sections; candidates may attempt sections individually or a combination of two, three or four sections. Candidates attempting the full Test (four sections) will be given priority.

The fee is £150 for the full Test, or £60 per section. This is forfeited if the candidate withdraws within three weeks of the Test.

Applications must be made to The Pony Club Office on the official form having first been sanctioned by the District Commissioner and Area Representative. The nomination form can be found on the Training & Test Nomination Forms page.

An AH Honours award can be given to a candidate who has reached an exceptionally high standard in all sections of the Test.
Members who pass the full AH Test on one day will be awarded a pass with Distinction.

Remember:

  • Only wear your gloves when actually lungeing, riding or leading a horse. Do not tack up or bandage with them on; it will make you slow and fumbly
  • When checking tack be methodical, look at both sides and only do it once
  • Always untie the horse when looking at its teeth
  • Always hang up the headcollar, or remove it from box if the horse is not wearing it
  • Always close doors, skip out and pick out feet
  • Always give quantities of food in pounds or kilos, not scoops!
  • To check all tack on horses
