1) All certification updates must now be done by online at secure.ponyclub.org. by Group Liaison or by the DC/CA if a member of a club or center at
If you need log in assistance to access your club/center record please contact Aileen Gordon.
2) The Horse Management section must be recorded for each level earned, and then the appropriate riding section (HMX, FL, JP) may be entered.
The "alternative progression” that came available in 2010 and allowed members to test the Horse Management separate from the riding portion and for the Traditional Certification allowed the flat section and the jumping sections to also be tested separately is now become the accepted manner. In order to ensure that all members records are truly reflective of their accomplishments, the HM must be recorded for a level, and then the appropriate riding sections then become available.
3) We have altered the display of the Current Highest Certifications in two ways. First the Horse Management (HM) will always appear first in the line of certifications. Secondly, to help make reading the current highest Certifications for a member easier within the Traditional Track, once a member has earned the HMX FL and HMX JP at a level, just the HMX Certification will show.
Example: Joey Smith has earned his D-3 in HM, Fl and JP. His current Certifications read: D-3 HMX D-3 HM, D-3 FL, D-3 JP. Now it will read: D-3 HM, D-3 HMX. If Joey goes on to earn is C-1 HM and then his C-1 FL, then his Certifications will read: C-1 HM, D-3 HMX, C-1 FL.
1) At all levels – retest deadline is August 31 of the following year from the when the original test was taken.
A candidate may retest only if the candidate qualifies for a retest by passing the minimum number of sections stated on the test sheet and the original Examiner has recommended the candidate to retest. Those testing during the current year have until August 31 of the following year to retest. Candidates must arrange for retests through their Liaison.
