Testing

For details about the Pony Club testing process and goals, refer to the Canadian Pony Club website.

The BCLM Testing Committee coordinates tests at the Branch (D/D1/D2/C/C1), Regional (C2/B/B2), and National (A) levels, organizes Examiners for all levels, brings Pony Club Examiners into the testing process and ensures they maintain their qualifications.
