Area 5 Tetrathlon Schedule
Here is the schedule for the Area 5 Tetrathlon. You need to enter via Horse-Events as this is the Qualifier for the Champs at Offchurch, Bury on 12-15th August.
There is a Triathlon running alongside. It is being held IN Area 5 because many competitors felt it was too far to travel to Warwick each year where we join in with 3 other Areas. Entries will therefore be small and every entry will be appreciated.

The event incorporates the 2021 Area 4 and Area 5 Championship and Regional Championship qualifiers. The event includes the Open PC90 for individual PC members which was introduced for those PC members who have worked their way up to competing at PC110 level but who have a novice/younger horse with which they wish to compete at PC90 level. You will need to indicate on the entry form that you are entering the OPEN PC90. We continue to accept entries from non-Pony Club riders and we will do our very best to accommodate as many as possible.
Once again this year we are proposing to start the competition with the PC80 class and work through the classes in ascending height order thus finishing the day with the PC110. This worked well in 2019 and enables us to be as efficient as possible in getting through the day.
In order to encourage as many branches as possible to enter teams, our usual restriction on riders entering a single class on two horses will not apply where the second ride is intended to make up a team or, possibly, in other exceptional situations.
As usual, those Pony Club Branches wishing to enter teams are able to leave team selection until the week following closure of entries. All riders/branches should submit entries for individuals by the closing date of FRIDAY 18th JUNE but team selection from those individual entries does not need to be notified until WEDNESDAY the 23rd JUNE. The branch DC or Team Manager can email Horse-Events email@example.com to request an updated list of their individual branch entries, make alterations/amendments as necessary and then email the updated information back to Horse-Events – firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important that ALL RIDERS HAVE ENTERED INDIVIDUALLY BY THE 18TH JUNE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE TO BE INCLUDED IN A TEAM.
We have had to slightly increase the entry fee, which includes the start fee and medical cover and which had been held at the same rate since 2017, by £5 to £80 and also added a booking and administrative fee of £5.
I hope you will agree that this represents excellent value for money given the superb quality of facilities that Somerford Park Farm offers.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE NOTE – EQUINE FLU – All responsible equestrians will be aware of the recent measures adopted by various organisations and venues to protect, as far as possible, against the risks of equine flu. Pony Club rules currently require vaccination certificates to be up-to-date within the previous twelve month period. Somerford Park have confirmed to us that, for the time being, they will also follow the same rule. Any change to this (e.g. to re-introduce the requirement for 6 month booster vaccinations) will be notified in good time.
Passports/vaccination certificates must be produced and will be checked on declaration and horses/ponies must NOT be unloaded until they have been approved.
Volunteers – we are always grateful for offers of help toward running the competition on the day – this is especially the case when it comes to finding XC fence judges. If you – or anyone you know, is willing to help in any capacity, please get in touch with our volunteers organiser, Sally Harris, ECBPC Head of Eventing, at the following address: email@example.com
Cross country fence judging teams – NEW RULE
Due to continuing difficulties recruiting sufficient volunteers to be able to run this event, we have had to impose a condition on TEAM entries this year requiring that each TEAM provides at least TWO (ideally three) people to man a single fence for the whole day. Although these individuals can be swapped in and out during the day to spread the load, this can only be done between classes and with the knowledge and agreement of our volunteers organiser, Sally Harris. Since we only plan one briefing for XC jump judges, it is important that at least one person from each jump judging team is present at that briefing and thereafter throughout the day.
Please address any queries regarding the organisation of the event to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
