IRISH PONY CLUB
NATIONAL TETRATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS
2nd to 4th August 2014

Running and Prizegiving at Limerick Racecourse
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES: Friday 18th July
Email mary@irishponyclub.ie Entry fee €55 per competitor

*NOTE: DCs should enter teams of bous (4or3) and girls (4or3) in senior and junior (under 15)
There are no mixed (boys&girls) teams in Tetrathlon.
Please save the online entry form sent by email, type in your entries and email back to mary@irishponyclub.ie by Friday 18th July

Forming Area Teams
An AREA may enter a team of Junior Boys or Junior Girls from Branches who cannot form a team in their own right. Braches who can forma a team (either boys or girls) and who have surplus members (i.e where a brach has 5 girls), the extra member(s) will go into the "ad hoc" system whereby, the Chairman and the Administrator will form teams by drawing names from a hat. The spirit of this rule is to facilitate branches that cannot form tams from within the branch and to encourage participation from branches and Area new to the discipline. The formation of Area "Super-Teams"  breaks this spirit and will not be allowed.

Shooting: Juniors shoot rifle, Seniors shoot pistol. DCs/Trainers must carry their Branch Authorisation with their guns to the competition. Parents msut carry a licence for privately owned guns. DCs are asked to send a list of branch guns (serial no. & make) to HQ to facilitate application for an authorisation for the competiton.

Swimming (25m. pool, UL): Swimmers who need an outside lane must be noted on entry form. Where DCs deliberately over estimate the lengths to be swum by a member, action will be taken.

Stabling at Limerick Racecourse: Stabling - €50 for one night or three nights (2 bales of shavings supplied).

Camping in lorries at Crecora: Allowed

ABOUT TETRATHLON

Tetrathlon is a very demanding competition with four parts: swimming, running, riding, and shooting.

The Aim of The Pony Club Tetrathlon is to provide Members with a challenging competition requiring sound practical horsemanship and general athletic ability. Thus all-rounders should be encouraged to further their interest in riding and the horse generally by combining riding with other activities, thereby retaining their interest in The Pony Club.

The Tetrathlon originated as a competition for boys, but there are separate competitions for girls, under identical rules except where otherwise stated.  Boys’ and girls’ competitions are run separately from each other, though they may take place at the same event.

SCORING
The Pony Club scoring system is similar to the Modern Pentathlon method in that competitors score positive points according to the standard of their performance in each phase. In the Running and the Riding Phases, they are based on standards of 1,000 and 1,400 respectively, competitors having marks deducted or, in the Running, bonus marks added, according to their performance compared to the standard. In the Shooting and Swimming positive marks are awarded for shots on the target and distances swum and on scales such that scores are commensurate with those of other phases.

Ideally each phase should have an equal influence on the final result (except that riding should have slightly more weight).  

The scores of a competitor in each of the four phases are added together to give his overall score for the Tetrathlon.  To earn an overall score a competitor must start each phase and must continue until eliminated or compelled to retire.

Irish Pony Club Tetrathlon Rule Book
