Pony Club Ratings = S

Hello, I am going to be rating for both my C2 and HB ratins this spring and fall. I am rather worried but am already starting to study. I was wondering if any one on the forum has taken their HB rating? I would love to hear how the expierence was and how you prepared for it.

I am going to be taking my C2 this fall.. so I have not yet taken an HB, but I have studied HB for Quiz. Thats a lot to take at one time, because the C2 is a long test that consists of you jumping three-foot, having an up to date record book for nine months as well as a conditionings schedule. There's also about 2-3 pages of knowledge and information you have to study for. http://covered.ponyclub.org/C-2Testsheet2009.pdf Heres a link for the test sheet with everything you need to know and perform at your C2 testing.

For your HB... it is ALL information. NO riding. So you need to study study study all of your manuals. Especially the A/B and C Manual. There is LOTS of information that will be on the HB test, and remember... you need to make sure you can recite all of it before you get there. After studying, have someone read off this test sheet here> http://covered.ponyclub.org/C-2Testsheet2009.pdf And practice reciting and demonstrating your answers on your on pony/horse. Practicing always helps for before you get there.

For your HB you also have to be able to teach an unmounted lesson... so prepare for that ahead of time and go ahead and try and have a few at your barn. You also have to have 6 hrs of mounted lesson assistance... so ask your instructor if you can assist her for pony club. Make sure you practice your safety checks as well, and have someone next to you with a Safety Check sheet that they use at Rally, to help you remember how everything fits and why it fits that way. Your DC also has to sign off, saying that you did your 6 hours of assistance. Bring that along with your other stuff to the testing.

I think it's smart that you are already starting to study! :) Good Luck!! You'll do great!

Thanks for the reply!
I am not to worried about the C2 riding part, Dusty and I have taken mulitple 1st place wins at USEF shows at 3'6. I am more so worried about getting there and just totally blanking, I am not to good at tests, especially when there is a lot of stress/pressure. I hope you do well in your C2. I have really enjoyed pony club so far because it is so educational, I have learned so much!
It is great to meet more people involved in pony club...
