DETAILS

What is Tetrathlon?

Tetrathlon is the ultimate test of a rider’s fitness as well as their pony’s. They must ride, shoot, run and swim all in one day! Usually this is a team sport but where we want everyone to give it a try, we will be doing this individually. That does not mean that we cannot show Loyalty, Character and Sportsmanship to work together and have fun!

Divisions

Age is decided as of January 1st of the calendar year. “Peewee” will be anyone of the age 10 or under. “Novice” is participants ages 11 to 13, inclusively. “Junior” is participants 14 to 16, inclusively and “Senior” is any participant over the age of 16.

Schedule

We will have a start time of 9am. We will begin with riding with the participants who are competing at the higher jumping levels and work our way down to the logs or Xrail division. They will then proceed to shooting and lunch after that. After lunch, we will run to the Hampton Bible Camp for the running portion and that is where we will swim.  Riders will be returned to the Hampton Riding Centre to clean up and present awards.

THE PHASES

Riding

All competitors need to be present at 8:30 to walk the course!

Please indicate on your entry form what level you are comfortable jumping in an open Cross Country field. We will be offering everything from being lead over logs with a lead-line, up to jumping 3 feet. Pace will be determined by the rider’s comfort level, there will be no penalty points for slower paces. Refusals (run outs, stopping) will accumulate penalty points to be subtracted from your riding score.

If you sign up for the logs course but then switch to lead line, you will be penalized. Choose carefully!

Note it the weather makes it unsafe to jump in the cross country field we will switch to a stadium jumping course. This is at the sole discretion of Hampton Riding Centre.

Shooting

Each participant will be granted 10 warm-up shots. They will then have 20 shots that count towards their score.  These are airsoft pistols with plastic beads. These guns are as per Canadian Pony Club specifications and no outside guns will be permitted. Safety and fun over score will emphasised in this phase.

Running

These are a guideline for the expectations for each division. If you believe that you/your child should be running a shorter distance, please indicate so on your entry form and identify yourself on the day of the event.

The following distances and times have been assigned to the divisions:

Peewee has a distance of 1.5 km in 10 minutes

Novice has a distance of 1.5 km in 8 minutes

Junior has a distance of 3 km in 18 minutes

Senior has a distance of 3 km in 15 minutes

Swim

These are a guideline for the expectations for each division. If you believe that you/your child should be swimming a shorter distance, please indicate so on your entry form and identify yourself on the day of the event.

The pool of choice this year will be at the Hampton Bible camp.

Below is the distance listed per division and approximately how many laps that will equal.

Peewee should swim 100m (8 laps) in 3 minutes.

Novice should swim 100m (8 laps) in 2 minutes.

Junior should swim 200m (20 laps) in 5 minutes.

Senior should swim 200m (20 laps) in 4 minutes.

Scoring

Scoring will be determined as follows. All scores are final.

Running: Each competitor begins with 1000 points, 2 points will be added for each second under allotted time and 2 points will be taken away for each second over the time allotted.

Shooting will be scored by what is shot on the target.

Swimming: Each competitor begins with 1000 points, 2 points will be added for each second under allotted time and 2 points will be taken away for each second over.

Riding: Each competitor begins with 1000 points, 20 points will be taken away for each refusal of up to a maximum of 3 refusals per fence.

Riding Attire

Casual riding attire is accepted. Breeches and a collared shirt are acceptable. ASTM approved helmets; boots with a  heel; vests and gloves are mandatory. We have a limited amount of vests, please bring your own if possible.

Safety Notice

Safety is of the utmost importance, along with fun. There will be no tolerance of pushing into the pool, running near the shooting, unsafe riding, etc. Unsafe behaviour will be grounds for dismissal. It is an expectation that riders will work together to keep the barn clean and the horses watered and looked after between events.

Fees

A cheque for $60 may be made out to Hampton Pony Club. E-transfers and cash will also be accepted. Please note any refunds are subject to a $10 handling fee.

** Deadline **

Entries and payment must be received by Monday July 1st so that ride times can be assigned and distributed prior the event.
