Dear All,

Firstly, many congratulations to everyone who competed at Sandroyd. We had a terrific RA team with lots of prizes, as well as excellent performances and most efficient timetables produced. Well done all. I hope everyone enjoyed their day.

Junior Regionals and Bicton Inter Area: Ben Burgess has been busy over May half term, he competed at both these events, coming an excellent 4th junior boy at Bicton, with a clear XC (only 3 in his class) and at the junior regionals his team (Southern England) came 4th. Ben shot 900, swam 8 lengths 18m, ran 1500m in 5min 57sec and jumped 2 stiff XC courses. He has trained hard for this and we are delighted he did so well. He also met up with lots of new friends from other pony clubs and all in all had a terrific Tet experience.
I hope more of you will compete at these competitions in the future. Keep up the great work.

Regular Tetrathletes Aggie, Connie and Alex put their shooting skills to the test yesterday at the British Shooting SE Schools Pistol Championships representing Rookwood School. At only their second competition of this type the team were Bronze Medallists – great result. A big shout out and thanks to Tet Team Manager, Mrs Jane Uloth, for all her help, advice and support.


Henry has had such fun doing the tri and tetrathlon this year. He has come a long way and is enjoying his new pony.

The first is ready for the off at the Hursley Tet and the other two are the last fence and finishing smile at the Poole and District (first time XC on new pony). The smile says it all!
