Junior International Tetrathlon


Junior International Tetrathlon at Moreton Morrell, 1st & 2nd June 2024

The 9th annual Junior International Tetrathlon at Moreton Morrell College was a fantastic event, with excitement and friendly competition in the air. This beloved Warwickshire venue was expertly managed by Lloyd Hunt and his son Joshua, ensuring a superb course.

Competitors and equines, including over 40 all the way from Ireland, arrived on the Friday afternoon. Kudos to John Flood and his team for their incredible effort, and to Sue Ware for her excellent job as Stable Manager. A last-minute Health & Safety hiccup about BBQs was efficiently resolved by Nick Cripps, much to the delight of BBQ enthusiasts.

Friday night kicked off with a shoot practice session to ease the nerves before Saturday morning’s shooting phase.

The standard of shooting this year was impressively high. Annabel Lupton, Grace Arnott, and Golda Borrett tied for Best Shoot among the girls, while Zachary Farnsworth led the boys. Hats off to Brian Goodenough for running this phase smoothly. Sophie Mackenney led the First Year Senior Girls early on.

Tetrathlon Party

Saturday evening featured a lively party with DJ Kevin, filled with themed performances. Ireland dazzled as “Mama Mia,” South West brought “High School Musical” to life, Wales & Borders charmed as “Barbie,” and Central’s winning “Lion King” act stole the show. The disco kept everyone dancing until 11pm!
