Proficiency Tests

The Pony Club training structure encourages members to take tests throughout their Pony Club career; this enables them to learn progressively about horse and pony care and riding. 

The tests are normally taken at recommended ages and are designed with certain objectives in mind.  Each test is awarded a different color felt to be placed under their Pony Club badge.The test syllabus for each test, along with the recommended minimum age and the felt color is published on a test card.
