National Tetrathlon Championships 2015

Very proud of Jamie Butt and Alfonso for coming 5th in the Open at the National Tetrathlon Championships this weekend. Jamie scored 960 in the shoot and had a great clear ride round a big bold XC course with plenty of questions. More importantly we had a really good time with the other Area 11 competitors. The Pony Club put on a great BBQ party & disco on the Sat night with a “Disney” theme (there is always a theme at Tet!) Jamie also got a gold award for gaining in excess of 4250 incl a 1400 ride. He was also selected ride again for England in the team competition which came 2nd. It would be lovely to see some younger ones get involved in this discipline it comes with a good social life for the older ones!  Photos on The Championships page
