Tetrathlon courses always include a gate to be opened and closed mounted and a slip rail at which the competitor dismounts, takes the rail down one side, leads his pony over, replaces the rail, then remounts.  Both are timed and no penalties are deducted if accomplished within 60secs.  Maximum points are awarded for a clear round within the optimum time, Minis are not timed.  Points are deducted for various faults or an L option taken.  Siblings can ride the same horse.


Competitors score points in accordance to the distance they have swum in a certain time.


Runners go off at 1minute intervals, usually in their teams, over a measured course. A bogey time is set for the course and for each second over or under that time a number of points are deducted or added to 1000 points.
