Jaelyn, 12, is the daughter of John and Julie Jordan of East Syracuse, NY. Ella, 12, and Logan, 15, are the children of Glenn Klingle and April Andersen of Richford, NY.
To earn the certification, each member passed an examination that tested horsemanship skills and equine knowledge. Each of the Pony Club certification levels is more difficult than the preceding one, and requires Pony Club members to learn more about horses and their care and to become increasingly accomplished riders and teachers to younger members. The top certification level is the A level and is reached by fewer than one in 300. It denotes throughout the international horse industry a highly competent and knowledgeable horseperson.
