The Goal of Horsemasters
The Pony Club Horsemasters program for adult volunteers was developed to meet the needs of parents and other adults to learn more about horses, to feel comfortable around the animals and secure in their knowledge about horsemanship and rinding skills.
Horsemasters groups are formed in affiliation with a Pony Club, a Riding center or a Region, and are open to any adult who is not a current participating Pony Club member.
While the Horsemasters Program is based on the Pony Club Standards of Proficiency, members do not do the ratings of youth members. Their achievements are topic based, meaning that adults can learn as much or as little as they want about a particular topic, such as grooming, bandaging, jumping, etc. While mounted meetings will be offered, it is not necessary to ride in order to be a member.
Currently, there are two levels of Horsemasters Expectations, the Bronze and Silver Awards, but higher levels may be offered in the future. The Bronze level is based on D-1 and D-2 standards for unmounted instruction. The Silver level is based on C-1 and C-2 standards for unmounted and D-3 through C-2 for mounted instruction.
