PONY CLUB Tetrathlon

Tetrathlon is a challenging four phase competition requiring practical horsemanship and general athletic ability involving running, riding, swimming and shooting.
• Running phase: The senior boys run over a 3,000 metre course while senior girls and all juniors run over a 1,500 metre course and each competitor’s time is measured.
• Swimming phase: The senior boys swim for 4 minutes, senior girls and juniors swim for 3 minutes.
• Shooting Phase: Senior boys and girls shoot using an air pistol of .177 calibre at 10m. air pistol targets from the standing position. Junior boys and girls shoot using an air rifle of .177 calibre at 10m. air rifle target lying in a prone position. Scores from all four phases are added together to arrive at an individual score for each member. The best three individual scores are calculated to arrive at a team score.

 The Junior Irish Tetrathlon Team had an extremely successful trip to Morreton Morrrell near Warwickshire in England over the June Bank Holiday weekend.  The girls teams placed 1st, 4th and 6th, while the boys teams placed 2nd, 3rd and 6th.  Individual competitors Aoife Murphy, Eabha Toole and Ciara Hoban who also had very successful trip.

A gallery of photographs is now available on the Irish Pony Club Facebook page.  Congratulations to everyone involved.
