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.

Branches are asked to nominate junior tetrathletes who display the qualities necessary to be an Ambassador of the IPC.  Skills and abilities in all four disciplines required will be assessed during the training and subsequent trials for team selection.  Any club member interested, who displays good IPC qualities but who may be new to the sport are very welcome to put their name forward, training in the disciplines will be given.

All nomination forms must be completed, signed by the Branch District Commissioner and submitted to the IPC Office before Thursday 1st February 2018.

Details of the first squad training will be posted on the IPC website when the information becomes available.
