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.

The Tetrathlon Committee of the Irish Pony Club are delighted to announce that the 2019 National Minimus Championships will be held at Millstreet Green Glens Arena on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of June 2019.

The Green Glens Arena in Millstreet is one of Ireland's premier event venues.  We are very excited to be holding our Minimus Championships in this facility, which has hosted numerous World and European championship level sporting fixtures.  Thank you to Thomas Duggan and the Duggan Family for their kind permission in allowing us to use their facilities.  

Punchestown proved to be a super venue for the Minimus Championships for the past three years and we hope that Millstreet will follow suit, offering a wonderful experience for all of our young members.  The cross country riding phase, the running phase and the prize giving will all take place in Millstreet while the swimming phase is provisionally booked for Mallow Swimming Pool.  Exact details and times will be published as they are confirmed.  As usual the cross country riding will take place on Saturday 15th of June, while the swimming, running and prize giving will go ahead on Sunday 16th of June. 

Stabling and camping will be available in Millstreet.  Booking details will be published on the IPC website over the next few weeks.  

The Irish Pony Club is privileged to be given permission to hold our championships in Millstreet.  Preparation and planning for the finer details of the event will now begin in earnest.  We look forward with anticipation to welcoming all of our Minimus competitors to Millstreet in June.
