PONY CLUB Minimus

Minimus is a 2-day competition consisting of three disciplines, swimming, running and riding. Points are awarded to competitors for their performance in each discipline. The overall winner is the competitor with the most points after all three disciplines. Participants must be U-12 on the 1st of January of the current year. However, new older Pony Club members may participate Hors Concours to gain valuable competition experience. Irish Pony Club D+ test standard is recommended for this competition.
The Minimus Championships are a team competition where members from branches form a team of three/four for the competition. Individual trophies are awarded to boys and girls for the best overall winners and the best in the disciplines of running and swimming.

Minimus Announcement

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.
