Tetrathlon is a  pony club competition covering four disciplines:  Jumping, running, swimming and shooting.

The shooting is done with air pistols at targets , ( which pony club provide), the running distance varies from 1000 m to 3000m depending on age, swimming as far as you can in 2-4 minutes time depending on age and then a course of jumps on grass, the height depending on age.

During the winter months the jumping is excluded and the competition becomes a triathlon.

Look out for new dates for shooting practice, we will hopefully get them started in the Christmas holidays or new year. This will give everyone a chance to practice before the comp in February.

Age groups   8-11  Minimus,     11-14 Junior,   15-21 Senior,  up to 25 Open

Each area generally holds one competition a year , the next for area 5 is ??????.  Confirmation for the time, date and location of the competitions generally are not advertised until approx four weeks before the competition. So don’t worry if you cant find the details.

The competitions can be entered individually or as a team, and similar to Winter League the entries have to be sent off together, so will be done by Jo.  This is to cut down on admin at area competitions
