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.

Entries are currently open for National Tetrathlon Championships taking place 14th and 15th August 2021.

Please note days and locations of disciplines.
*Due to current Government Guidelines no indoor swimming*

Tetrathlon Chairman's Address

Tetrathlon Chairman’s Address,

Dear Competitors, Parents and extend Tetrathlon Family,

It’s great to be back out competing after many setbacks and cancellations, we really looking forward to the weekend, especially Saturday in Killossery Lodge Stud, kindly hosted by the Glynn Family. They have produced a wonderful Championship course with lots of options. We are still under strict Covid guidelines, so bare with us and listen to our stewards and Covid stewards. We will do the utmost for you to have the most enjoyable weekend.

The last 18 months have been particularly hard on everyone due to the pandemic but sadly some families have had to endure more hardship than others throughout this time. The Irish Pony Club would like to remember all our members who sadly passed away during the year – Grace Tyrell, Tiggy Hancock, Susanna O’Dowd & Gabriella Weaver.

Gabriella Weaver was an important part of our large Tetrathlon Family. She represented Ireland on many occasions, a keen rider, excellent runner, accurate shot but her swimming was where she excelled. A member of the Roscommon Branch and Trident Swimming Club, she pursued her love of swimming to University and was part of the Irish National Swim team. By virtue of this, we would like to introduce a new trophy to our existing collection, named in Gabriella’s memory. The trophy represents her contribution to the swimming discipline within Tetrathlon.

Gabriella is remembered fondly by all who knew her, along with her fellow members who we sadly lost over the past year. “The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long”

John flood, Tetrathlon Chairman
