What is a Tetrathlon Rally
The Tetrathlon Rally (or "Tet" Rally) is very unique in that riding is actually only one part of the two-day rally. The Tet Rally includes riding, shooting, running and swimming. Typically, Day 1 is for riding and swimming with shooting and running on Day 2. All levels of members are invited to participate with ribbons being awarded for each phase and overall based on level and age groups. Members compete as individuals though a horse management score is given to the whole group.
The riding phase is a show jump course that is poles on the ground for the lowest level and larger jumps for the upper levels. All fences are in an outdoor grass ring. The qualifying levels include a "slip rail" and "gate" that horses and riders must navigate during the course. Horses may be used more up to three times so riders often share horses.
Swimming is done at a nearby pool with distances based on age groups.
Running distances are also based on age groups.
Shooting is with an air pistol at a shooting range set up at the rally location. There are different stances based on the member's age. Shooting practices are held at Waredaca and are MANDATORY for all members wishing to participate in this rally.
In 2014, Waredaca PC sent its first set of members to this rider and did very well! All members came home with ribbons, and our Junior Girls swept the medals! For more details, see "2014 Tet Rally Results."
