To pass this badge the students needed to show that they know how to approach a pony correctly and safely, be able to show the following parts of the pony; Eyes, Ears, Mouth, Neck and Leg and these parts of the saddle and bridle; reins, girth, bit and stirrups.

The students were all delighted to receive the certificates and badges marking these awards and it gives them a huge sense of achievement improving confidence and self-esteem.
