PONY CLUB Tetrathlon

Tetrathlon is a challenging four phase competition requiring practical horsemanship and general athletic ability involving running, riding, swimming and shooting.
• Running phase: The senior boys run over a 3,000 metre course while senior girls and all juniors run over a 1,500 metre course and each competitor’s time is measured.
• Swimming phase: The senior boys swim for 4 minutes, senior girls and juniors swim for 3 minutes.
• Shooting Phase: Senior boys and girls shoot using an air pistol of .177 calibre at 10m. air pistol targets from the standing position. Junior boys and girls shoot using an air rifle of .177 calibre at 10m. air rifle target lying in a prone position. Scores from all four phases are added together to arrive at an individual score for each member. The best three individual scores are calculated to arrive at a team score.

Please Note:

These scores are provisional and are essentially an online version of the scores that will appear on the notice board in Crecora at the Holmestead Saddlery Tetrathlon Championships.
The Tetrathlon Committee are trialing this method of reporting the scores, to allow IPC members keep track of their progress throughout the weekend.
The official scoring of the event will be separate to this reporting mechanism.  Therefore, these online scores will not interfere with the official scoring and results in any way.
The official results from the Holmestead Saddlery National Tetrathlon Championships will be posted on the Results page of the Irish Pony Club website on Tuesday 7th August 2018.
