 Club Uprating Guidelines

 

These qualifiers are meant to enhance the uprating procedure for our members. The intent is to better prepare the candidate for a positive, enjoyable and safe educational             

experience.

Every candidate is encouraged to participate in activities that support the Standards of Proficiency at the level they hope to test at; i.e. riding in open spaces, eventing, foxhunting, horse trials, Hunters Pace, mini events.

Following these guidelines does not in any form guarantee moving up a proficiency level. A successful uprating is at the final discretion of the examiner.
