General info

Parents, sorry no drop and go on that day! We will need your help to run the day, supervise and transport to different venues. Car pooling can be organised in advance or in Woodlands before the Run phase.

Prepare your gear for each phase in separate bags and well in advance!

Make sure you wear old runners for the run phase as it can get mucky… have wipes/ towels to clean up before going to the pool! Spare socks are a must.

Don’t forget hat and goggles and couple of towels for the pool ( there might be some waiting on side lines so have an extra towel so you don’t get cold).

Price of lunch is not included in the entry fee. If someone has a better suggestion than Mac Donald at similar cost and speed please let us know!

Minimus and Tetrathon are usually run over a XC course but for the purpose of the day we will have the riding phase over a SJ course indoors. We will try to incorporate elements such as a gate and a slip rail within the course. The warm up will be under instruction and you will get to try the fences that are new to you and your pony. The aim of the day is to have fun and learn about the format of a great “all rounder” competition.

Entry is €20 for the day for all 3 phases. This is heavily subsidised by the Kingdom branch in order to encourage you all to take part.

If you want to try the SJ course only, cost will be €15 . Priority will be given to 3 phase competitors if numbers warrant it.

Open to other branches members with active 2017 membership.
