In 2011, with great success, Pony Club Tetrathlon piloted a mentoring programme to run alongside the Tetrathlon Championships at Hartpury College. Using top rated coaches from Modern Pentathlon, British Shooting and Pony Club they work as Mentors and Role Models to Competitors. Now in it’s sixth year, we are looking forward to welcoming this years selected Mentors to The NFU Mutual Tetrathlon Championships to continue to offer Members support and advice on how to deal with competition nerves and come up with their own plans for riding the testing Championships cross country course.

We’ll keep you posted on who this year’s Mentors are going to be and where you can find them at The Championships!
