As you can see below, we had some very good results in the past.  We are now hoping to get teams together again to represent us in this discipline.  



June 2017Izzy and Cracker

Izzy Mead and her pony Cracker were chosen to represent the East of England at the Junior Regional Tetrathlon at Moreton Morrell last weekend

This event is always lots of fun as all the regions camp together and a big party takes place on the last night.

The overall event was won by the Irish, followed by Schotland.  The standard of the athletes was incredible.

Izzy had a good shoot and run, plus one metre of a PB in her swim.

The XC, is always the toughest TET course of the year with some very challenging technical combinations.  The water was a meaty drop rail into the water and a skinny out (it had 4 parts), many people saying you were unlikely to meet a combination like that before Novice in British Eventing.

Out of 113 girls there were 26 clear in the time – to put it into context.

2 of the 13 East of England girls did fabulous clear rounds

Cracker was on top form, he flew clear round every difficult combination in the time, what a star, he was just penalised for shooting past the smallest fence on the course!!! The jump judge had leapt up in hi viz, shouting at people to get off the course, causing Cracker to spook to the side.

Lots of fun was had by all.

Now there’s a bit of a rest before the Area Tet and hopefully the Championships at Bishop Burton.


Many Congratulations to Izzy Mead for winning the first Tetrathlon of the season run by the Barlow Pony Club and held at the lovely Osberton Estate.




Izzy Mead competed at the Winter Triathlon Championships at Milton Keynes yesterday.

For this competition you have to come first or second in your Area Event to qualify.  this was Izzy’s first time of qualifying.


She was thrilled to be one second off a personal best in her run, (not easy as it was very windy), she got a Personal Best in her swim and a good shoot of 900, despite shaking with nerves!

Izzy came a very respectable 28th and most importantly, loved being part of the East of Midlands Group and competing with all her friends.


The first Tetrathlon of the year is on the Osberton Estate, please contact Sarah Mead asap if you are interested, as entries have to be in very soon.

Meynell member Izzy Mead travelled all the way to Oundle again at the weekend for her first Tetrathlon of the season.
She had a  great shoot, swim and an amazing Personal Best in her run , she was lying in 5th place after the Tri .
It was a lovely XC course but had rained over night and was very slippy . The time was tight and no one made it round without time faults .
Izzy had a great round with her pony Cracker and ended up in a phenomenal 4th place .
Well done Izzy , the East Midlands Junior girls are really strong in Tetrathlon so this is a huge achievement

Izzy was selected to represent the East of England in May in the Regional event at Moreton Morrell . It was an amazing experience , many friends were forged and much fun was had. The highlight of the weekend was the barbeque and disco on the Saturday night . Not sure whether the grown ups or children had more fun !
