Tetrathlon

We have just spent a lovely two days at Plas Dolben, which hosted a Hunter Trials on the Saturday followed by the shoot, run and swim on the Sunday. The cross country course was beautifully built and presented. The gate in the time section proved influential and a bit tricky for some.

Day two of the Tetrathlon was the shoot, run and swim. There were some exceptional scores and personal achievements.  The competitors gave 110% and cheered each other on especially team members and all were very proud to be part of it. Well done everyone. The Flint & Denbigh teams came 1st (Lost Boys), 2nd (Pan’s People), 5th (Wendys) & 6th (Tinkerbells).  There was also a team from Gwynedd for the first time, a Cheshire Hunt South team and a team from Willington Riding centre which is a first…..Fab couple of days. Full results are available on the website.

A BIG thank you once again to Iona, Gareth, Rhian and Meg for all their hard work over the weekend hosting this fab Pony Club event for the members so that they can gain experience at riding cross country, and also the team of volunteers who give up their time to steward and fence judge, it is very much appreciated.

Next Triathlon is Nov 1st in Mold.
