Area Five Fun/Training Minimus / Tetrathlon
May 14th 2022
Muskerry have decided to host the Area Five Minimus/Tetrathlon on Saturday May 14th in Ballindenisk and Fermoy pool. This is a huge undertaking for the club and we'll be asking as may as possible to help on the day. We'd also hope that as many of our members as possible will take part - there is an event for U12s, U15s and over 15s. These are great days out and we're hoping some of our younger members in particular will catch the minimus/tetrathlon bug! Full information and results on our Area Five Minimus/Tetrathlon page.

Mini / Midi Show Jumping League
We have a two date show jumping league running on April 10th and May 1st at Coachford Equestrian Centre. Members are encouraged to attend both dates to secure a rosette on the second day. The session will be restricted to 5 riders with an instructor and everyone will finish by jumping a course of fences. The mini course will be 50s and the midi course will be 70s. Watch our booking page for entries.
Jump for Ukraine
One hour SJ rally with Meike Biegel. Rally will end with chance for each child to raise money for the Ukraine by jumping as many fences as they can in one minute. The club will donate €1 for each fence jumped to the Irish Red Cross for this worthy cause. Many thanks for John and Tania Reardon for the free use of their wonderful indoor arena. Three rallies of one hour will be organised between 10am to 1pm on Saturday May 7th.
Tetrathlon Shooting Training
There will be rifle and pistol training each Friday evening from April 15th onwards. We'd encourage all our members interested in the junior and senior tetrathlon to book in and get practicing in advance of the Area Five event.
Minimus / Tetrathlon XC Training
On May 1st will will run another xc session in preparation for the minimus/tetrathlon. The session will include practice of the slip rail and gate.
