Tetrathlon

Tetrathlon is a fun, sociable and athletic Pony Club sport involving a shoot, swim, run and cross country riding phase.

For all the information about this sport please see The Pony Club Tetrathlon website.

Taking part in Tetrathlon is a recognised pathway to the Olympic Sport of Modern Pentathlon (see Pentathlon GB )

At the Belvoir we have active teams in the younger age groups: U8 / Mini / Junior and Senior age groups and there are competitions throughout the year across Area 6 – East Midlands.

The 2020 rule book explains the different phases and has a useful set of points tables for all the phases at the back,  it can be downloaded for free as a pdf – click link here – or can be bought for £3.50
