Minimus heading


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.

We would like to wish everyone who is competing and volunteering at the Holmestead Saddlery National Minimus Championships this weekend the very Best of Luck.  Most importantly enjoy the weekend and stay safe!

A lot of hard work and preparation has gone into making this an enjoyable and successful weekend for everyone travelling to Punchestown.  We would like to thank all of our volunteers and wish them the best of luck this weekend. 

Finally, to all of our competitors, the training is all completed now, so have a great weekend and the very best of luck.  We are looking forward to seeing all of your Branch Camps and we can't wait to see what you have come up with. 
Holmestead Saddlery Superstore are the fantastic sponsors of the National Minimus Championships. Once again, they have a great weekend planned for all our IPC members.
