For National Pony Club updates and information please go to






Barlow Tetrathlon Team is an extremely friendly group and are always happy to welcome new recruits!  We have children competing in all classes and of all different abilities.

Competitions are at all levels from branch level to area qualifiers and National Championships. Pony Club HQ also hold junior and senior ‘regionals’ which are invitation only events. Competing as a triathlon (Run, Shoot and Swim) is an option for those who don’t wish to do the XC phase


It is a combination of XC horseriding, XC running, swimming and pistol shooting.  Points are awarded for each discipline and added up for the final score.  It is held over 2 days, one at a XC course and the other at a sports facility.


Tetrathlon is split into age groups – minis, juniors and seniors and are as follows:

Age             Shoot                  Swim          Run                 XC Ride

Under 8   bean bag             2 mins       1000m           v. small

The faster you run and swim the more points you get!

Children must be 8yrs to shoot, under 8’s can do the bean bag shoot.

Anyone wanting to try tet must come to  tet rallies to practise shooting.  We have Pony Club guns to use.
