EFFICIENCY CERTIFICATES

What are Efficiency Certificates?

Efficiency Certificates promote a greater understanding of fundamental riding skill, horse care and management.  The Efficiency Certificate program gives a staged approach to learning and a good basis for planning rallies to systematically teach our riders.

The Efficiency Certificate program is set out in the Pony Club Australia Syllabus of Instruction.

C Certificates & State Competition

Club Members who have been at pony club for at least two years and who are aged 14 years or over need their ‘C’ certificate to ride at state championships.

'C' certificate is not required to ride at a zone championship, a rider who wishes to be considered for selection in a state championship competition, is required (if applicable) to have the 'C' certificate before the day of the zone championships. This is because the zone championships is also a state championship qualifying event.

Riders wishing to qualify for the state horse trials championship must have the 'C' certificate before lodging an entry application with the zone representative.
