Points to Note

  • The schedule in August between the Eventing and the Tetrathlon Championships is very tight. All competitors who wish to attend the National Tetrathlon Championships must be entered before Friday 9th August.
  • When typing in the information on the championship entry form for your son or daughter, please enter the information in sentance casing as you would like to see it typed in the programme (Not in complete block capitals.)
  • Also, enter the name of your pony or horse as it appears on your passport on the entry form, not the pet or stable name for your pony or horse.
  • Corrections to these areas cause a significant delay in the production of the Branch Sorted Order for publication on the IPC website.
  • All of the entries will be checked to ensure that the qualification criteria have been fulfilled. Please complete all of the fields on the entry to ensure that this process can be completed quickly.
  • Numbers may be collected from the IPC Secretary’s Office at Ballindenisk, Co. Cork from Friday 16th August 2019.
    • It is recommended that Branches appoint ONE person to collect all of the Branch numbers and distribute to the members of your Branch at the championships.
