FFF Thoroughbred Checklist for [Pony Name] ([Avatar Name])
Primary trainer: [optional]
[Embed Pony Profile Here, optional]
Thoroughbred ponies are champions; the following items are the minimum expectations of a Thoroughbred Pony at Frilly Filly Farm. FFF Thoroughbreds are expected to perform consistently, and will be expected to demonstrate that they can achieve the requirements of each sign off a number of times consecutively.
Criteria such as, “Slalom: Score 18 or less with no faults, or Large Steeplechase: 1100 Score or better with no faults”, that doesn’t mean just once. It means you are to consistently run these courses at that level. A Thoroughbred pony is a champion and these are the minimum levels at which a thoroughbred should perform.
NOTE: ONLY FFF TRAINERS, SENIOR TRAINERS, STABLE MISTRESSES AND MASTERS CAN SIGN OFF SKILLS. Excluding recommendations; each trainer may only sign off each pony for THREE items of the initial eight Thoroughbred
EACH TRAINER MAY ONLY SIGN OFF THIS PONY FOR THREE SKILLS FOR THE INITIAL 10 USED FOR THOROUGHBRED. (ie, a trainer can sign for 3 required skills and several electives before the final exam, but the pony will need to electives signed by someone else to use for their first ten and final) .
