Tetrathlon is an exciting, sociable and athletic Pony Club discipline (see The Pony Club Website section : Tetrathlon ) , similar to the Olympic Sport of Modern Pentathlon (see Pentathlon GB ) , we have active teams in the younger age groups: U8 / Mini / Junior and Senior age groups, and Sophie Pedlar from the Belvoir placed 4th and 3rd at the GB Intermediate Championships, now competes at PC Open level and can help younger members.

The 2017 rule book explains the different phases and has a useful set of points tables at the back, it can be downloaded for free as a pdf – click here – or can be bought for £3 from here.
