Ready to Rate
Eno Triangle Pony Club's next rating will be December 3rd at Sport of Horse in Snowcamp.
The first five levels of horse management and riding for members are achieved through evaluations organized and administered by the local club or center. These levels are D-1 (beginner) through C-2 (intermediate).
Each member progresses in their skills and knowledge at a pace appropriate for them.
Members set their own certification goals.
Check-lists, found on the United States Pony Club Website, based on the different sections of the Standards of Proficiency have been developed to assist members and their personal instructors in assessing their readiness and confidence to be evaluated. It is strongly encouraged that members share their standard of proficiency for their desired rating level with their riding instructors to help guide and encourage their riding skills. Although Eno Triangle Pony Club does offer many opportunities for both mounted and unmounted instruction, the rider is expected to read their Pony Club manual, be familiar with the standards, and review the test sheets if available prior to the test date.
The C Level Certifications (C-1, C-2) are for the Pony Club member learning to become an active horseman who is able to care independently for his/her mount and tack. Similar to the D-level, the C-1 and C-2 levels focus on advancement and evaluation of Horse Management skills as well as show development towards a secure, independent seat and increasing control and confidence in all phases of riding, flat and/or jumping. The C-1 and C-2 certificates are awarded at the club/center level.
