The club will offer a minimum of 2 certifications per year (D1 – C2).  C3 and above certifications are at a National level. Please click on the following link for additional information on National Level Certifications.  


In order to take a D1 to C2 certification you must:

  • Submit your Letter of Intent* to the DC or the Certification Coordinator at least 2 weeks prior to the rating
  • Have your instructor check off all the appropriate skills on your appropriate Flow Chart
  • D3 and above candidates must volunteer at one non-Pony Club show in the previous calendar year


*Your Letter of Intent should state why you would like to certify, why you feel you are ready to certify and what you have done to prepare for your certification.  This Letter should be appropriate to your certification level.  For example, the Letter of Intent for a D1 may be very simple and be composed of only a couple of sentences.  However, the Letter for a C level candidate should be detailed.


Certificatons may be offered on an as needed basis on the discretion of the DC if requested by a member.
