Amy Veitch, a Member of Cumberland Farmers Hunt (South) Branch of The Pony Club (CFHS), has passed The Pony Club Standards of Efficiency A Test.
The A Test is the highest award of The Pony Club, and provides a comprehensive assessment of horsemanship and training of young horses. There are less than 10 A test passes in the country each year.
Amy travelled to Ingestre Stables in Stafford and The Talland School of Equitation in Gloucestershire to complete the exam.
She was assessed riding three horses doing flatwork and three horses showjumping and cross country, also lunging and discussing training the young horse.
Amy has been a member of CFHS since she was four years old. She has represented the branch on all area teams, competed at The Pony Club Championships and has chaired the CFHS Junior Committee.
During her gap year, before starting at Leeds University, Amy passed her British Horse Society teaching qualifications and is now also able to coach other Pony Club members.
