Success in Perth for Stewartry Pony Club Tetrathletes

A keen squad of Stewartry’s tetrathletes headed up to Kilgraston School and the new British Eventing cross country course at Forgandenny in Fife a few weeks ago. It was a hugely successful weekend of competition with the following results:


Phoebe Drysdale gained a 1st in the swim, a 2nd in the run, a  2nd in the shoot and had a lovely clear round (within the time) over the BE 90cms (HC) on her horse Storms Ransom to finish up in 2nd place overall. Phoebe recently competed at the National Triathlon for Scotland at Milton Keynes and finished a credible 13th place nationally after a good day in all three disciplines.


Poppy Drysdale, Amelia Craig, Jessica McCulloch & Gemma Caygill all competed in the Junior Girls section with fantastic results. Poppy had a 4th in the swim, a 3rd in the shoot, a 7th in the run and a lovely clear cross country on Cloncannon Superstar finishing in 3rd place overall. Amelia gained a 4th in the run, a 9th in the swim, a reasonably good shoot of 820 and a great clear on her new pony Antique Ricco gaining an extremely credible 6th place overall. Jessica has an awesome shoot of 900 to finish 9th in this discipline and had a fantastic clear cross country on her horse Seamus finishing in 10th place overall. Sadly Gemma’s pony was not able to compete on the Sunday but she had a fantastic shoot of 840, a good run finishing 10th and a much improved swim.


In the mini boys Charlie Caygill surpassed himself with a 6th in the shoot, a fantastic 1st in the run, a 6th in the shoot, a fourth in the swim and almost full points in the cross country to finish in 3rd place overall. In the mini girls Kristina Campbell was 3rd in the shoot, 5th in the run, 3rd in the swim. With just one unfortunate  run out in the cross country she finished in 3rd place overall. The most exciting result of the day however was Oliver Campbell who was in the Intros section. He came 1st in the run, 1st in the swim, 2nd in the shoot and had an amazing clear on his new pony Pepper finishing in first place overall. Also in this section Jasmine McCulloch had a good day with an 8th in the run, an 9th in the swim and a clear on her pony Benny to finish up in a magnificent 6th place overall.


Poppy Drysdale, Amelia Craig and Jessica McCulloch have all been chosen to represent Scotland at the ‘NFU Mutual Junior Regional Tetrathlon Championships’ in Moreton Morrel at the start of June. There will be two teams with five competitors in each and two individuals which has yet to be announced. For a relatively small club the tetrathlon results continue to produce results. Please contact Stewartry Pony Club should you require any more information on joining up or training with us.
