					THE PONY CLUB TETRATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS 2009

Four members of the Cumberland Farmers’ Hunt (South) Branch of the Pony Club travelled to
Hartpury College, Gloucester to take part in the Pony Club Mitsubishi Motors Tetrathlon
Championships on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd August. Ewen Shand, Poppy Hilton, Emma Sayer
and Robyn Gray qualified for the event at the Pony Club Area 2 Intermediate Tetrathlon
Competition in July. Tetrathlon involves shooting, swimming, running and riding. All four
members did extremely well with Ewen finishing in 10th place overall, a fantastic achievement
on his first visit to the championships. Robyn and Emma produced impressive personal bests
in the swimming and Poppy was second in the shooting scoring 940. CFHS tetrathletes are
coached by Jon Fletcher, a former member of the branch who was the Open Boys Pony Club
Tetrathlon Champion in 2000 and 2002. A very enjoyable weekend competing against
members from all over the country. The Pony Club is keen to encourage as many members as
possible to take part in Tetrathlon in the future.
