Guidelines for Pony Club Mount Classes
This is a class which is intended to find and reward the mount which in the opinion of the judge, is considered to be the most suitable for use as a pony club mount. This class is not a beauty contest. Cosmetic blemishes, scars or other signs of wear and tear should not be taken into account when judging this class. The principle focus is on the horse’s attitude and way of going for assessing its suitability as a mount.
The horse should carry its rider safely and obediently at all times. It should give the rider a comfortable ride and be able to correctly perform transitions and changes of pace calmly and willingly. It should be the type of mount that is capable of assisting the rider to improve their riding skills and knowledge consistent with the age and skills expected of pony clubbers of that age. For example the 9 year old with 12 hands and under, will require different attributes to the 16 year old on a 16 hand horse. Both will still be guided by the question of suitability and rideability.
The horse should stand still when requested and especially when the rider is mounting or dismounting. It should be able to be ridden on a long rein when requested.
The combination of mount and rider should present a happy picture of confidence with the mount going forwards freely.
