Area 5 National Tetrathlon Championship Qualifier 2018

Ed: If anyone would like to send me photos to put with this report, please send to area5pcuk@gmail.com

July 14- 15th, 2018

The Area 5, 7 and 9 National Tetrathlon Championship Qualifier 2018 took place at both Whitfield Farm, Ettingham, Warwick, courtesy of the Wakeham family (cross country ride, shoot and run phases) and at the Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre, Leamington Spa (swim phase).

It was a fantastic event! All those that took part commented on the lovely atmosphere! We were all made to feel exceptionally welcome by the Wakeham family. Many of our competitors enjoyed camping and stabling with the Hutsby family who are local to the event.

The Chief Stewards for the weekend were Andy Frame and Judy Hardcastle.  They were both exceptionally impressed with the cross country course and going considering the lack of rain. The whole course had been watered and where necessary the rutted ground had been rolled and crushed to remove the lumps and bumps. The Wakeham family were still checking and preparing the ground on the evening prior to the event to ensure it was as good a surface as possible for the competitors and their horses.

Area 5 had competitors in the Open Boys, Junior Girls, Junior Boys, Mini Girls, Mini Boys and Tadpole Girls classes.

  • Russell Wingfield (Open Boy) from Aberconwy came in 2nd place with some stiff competition achieving the highest ride score of the boys qualifying for the National Championships.
  • Orlagh Toner (Junior Girl) from Flint and Denbigh had a fantastic clear ride on a technical course qualifying for the National Championships.
  • Archie Peffers (Junior Boy) from Waen-y-Llyn was placed 5th qualifying for the National Championships with a clear cross country ride. Archie said that he enjoyed the cross country course so much he would like to go round again!
  • Leah Lamb (Mini Girl) from Flint and Denbigh came in 6th place. Leah had the smallest pony, at 11.2hh, of the day to go around the cross country course! She was absolutely delighted to achieve an almost clear cross country ride with only one very unlucky stop.
  • Isabella Stone (Mini Girl) from Flint and Denbigh put in a very credible performance. Well done Isabella.
  • Thomas Johnson (Mini Boy) from Cheshire Hunt South achieved 2nd place.
  • Daisy Stone (Tadpole Girl) from Flint and Denbigh came in 2nd place with Best Swim.
  • Constance Wright (Tadpole Girl) from Flint and Denbigh came in 4th place with Best Shoot.
  • Polly Johnson (Tadpole Girl) from Cheshire Hunt South achieved 5th place! A great performance by all our Tadpole Girls in a tough class of 12 competitors.
  • Toby Johnson (Open Boy) – East Cheshire also gained a place to compete at the National Championships as Toby is currently part of the GB International Tetrathlon team competing in the USA.

The National Tetrathlon Championships which are to be held on August 9th – 12th at Offchurch Bury near Leamington Spa. The Grassroots Tetrathlon competition is to be held at the same venue on August 10 – 11th.

Area 5 Mostyn Dri Tri June 9th 2018

Sixteen fit Flint and Denbigh members (motley lot as in picture) flew the flag at the Dry Tri (no swim) in Mostyn and a wonderful day was had by all.

The riding was a mix of SJ and XC fences and was quite testing.  Some competitors chose to ride a course lower than their age group but every single FnD came home with a rosette – or two !

There were some remarkable performances –

  • Orla Kissane won the Tadpoles with the top run score of 1135.
  • I have to say Elsie Lynch was amazing on the testing course.
  • Archie Lynch won the Mini boys with a top run.
  • Iri Davies came 2nd in Mini girls with top run of the class equal with Imogen Kissane.
  • Leah Lamb came 6th with a top shoot of 920 ! Isabella Stone had 2nd shoot with a score of 860.
  • Orlagh Toner won the Junior girls with a one handed top shoot score of 920 – well done Orlagh.
  • Eben Davies won the Junior boys with an excellent ride score and
  • William Stone came 2nd with a top run of 1111 points.
  • Katy and Rosie enjoyed their day as newcomers and can’t wait for the next one !

There was a great atmosphere,  the sun shone and the venue was ideal.

Ella Booth at the Royal Windsor Horse Show Tetrathlon Competition 2018

Ella Booth, Cheshire Hunt North, represented Wales and Borders at the Royal Windsor Horse Show Tetrathlon Competition 2018

Wow! What an amazing weekend at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The whole experience was just amazing, the run, swim, ride, shoot and the evening performances and not forgetting the lovely people who were so supportive and helpful!

For me, I probably had one of my best tetrathlon ever. I was so happy with my 10m PB in the swim, my shoot really showed me that I know what I’m doing and I just need to believe in myself! The run was average for me and the ride I was so happy with because bug had never seen so many people in one crowd before and tried so hard even though she was so nervous, I really couldn’t be happier with her!

I would like to thank everyone who helped get down and perform the way I did in every aspect of each event and out and thanks to my amazing team mates that were very kind and made it so much fun, and now I can say I’ve ridden 10m infront of the Queen.
