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.

Hors Concours (HC) 2017

(Definition ‘out of competition’, ‘not competing for a prize’) at MINIMUS 2017

 Please note The HC section was introduced to facilitate new, older IPC members to take part at national level without the stress of a championship. The HC is not a separate competition. All competitors will receive a completion rosette but no rosettes or prizes will be given for placings in this section.

The HC section is aimed at new IPC members over the age of 12, who have not passed the C test and who have not competed at junior level cross country (i.e. Hunter Trials, ODE or Tetrathlon).

This year all members riding in the HC section will do so at the end of the championship cross country i.e. they will be numbered after the Minimus teams and individuals. Members will swim in their swim heat according to ability (selected swim heats) with the Minimus participants, except for the last heats which will be kept for the Minimus children only.

Running will be strictly in numerical order.
