Event Information Sheet

Tetrathlon is a four phase event developed by the Great Britain Pony Club Association. In 2015 Victorian Pony Club Association in partnership with Modern Pentathlon Victoria introduced the sport to the state with the intention of preparing a team for the National Pony Club Championships in South Australia. This was successfully achieved.

The Tetrathlon is a pathway leading into the International, Olympic sport of Modern Pentathlon, designed by the founder of the Modern Olympics, Pierre de Coubitan .The sport, as the founder said, is the ultimate sport upholding the Olympic Ideals of faster, further and higher.

What is a Tetrathlon?:  What is Equathon ? What is Biathle?

Tetrathlon is a four phase event where competitors score points for each phase. The winner is the competitor with the highest score at the end of the event.

Equathon is a three phase event (no shoot) where competitors score points for each phase. The winner is the competitor with the highest score at the end of the event.

Biathle is a two phase event, (swim and run) The winner is the competitor with the highest score at the end of the event.


Swim:  50, 100 or 200m depending on age group

Shoot: Laser Shoot over distance of 10 metres using "Precision targets ". These are linked to a computer programthat records each shot out of 10. (Competitors 10 - 12 will shoot from 7 metres)

Each competitor has a 5 minute warm up followed by 2 sets of 5 shots with 2 minutes for each set.

Ride:  This phase is on the competitors own horse and consists of a combination of Show and Cross country jumps as well as obstacles to negotiate e.g. gate, post and rail. Maximum height of jumps/obstacles is 95 cm., 85cm or 75cm  depending on age group.

Run:1000, 2000, or 3000m run depending on age group.
