It is with great regret and disappointment that the chairman of the Tetrathlon committee Mr John Flood announces the postponment of the Autoboland National Minimus competition due to be held in Nuenna Farm Freshford, co Kilkenny this coming weekend.
“In line with Government move to Level 3 Covid restrictions from Wednesday October 7th we have no option but to postpone. We are devastated for the children who would have participated this weekend, and I would like to assure you that every avenue was explored before this decision was made".
The back room team of Area Reps, Health and Safety Committee, the venue owners and the Chairman of the Irish pony club, Michael Essame worked tirelessly in the past few days to get this competition to its final stages.
We are down but not out, I would encourage all pony club members to build on what they have learned this year and come back stronger in 2021.
We are considering new formats for the running of this competition into the future and will consult with clubs on this going forward.
