South Devon Moorland PC Tetrathlon 2013 Report

Mid Devon Pony Club�s Tetrathletes had a great time in the wind and the rain at neighbouring South Devon Moorland�s annual competition.

Thomas Bayley won the Junior Boys class with the Best Shoot in his age group and a stunning 1200 point run.. The riding phase for the event was held at Holwell Lawn, close to Hound Tor, and the weather was miserable but Tom rode a lovely clear round, with just a few time faults. Earlier in the year, Tom won his class at the N. Cornwall Tet. and at the beginning of June he was part of the South West Junior Boys team at the inter regional  competition, held in West Wales where he again rode clear.

In the Assisted Mini class the Mid Devon team of Rob Bilton, Amelia & Evelyn Moody finished third, just six points behind the second team. Amelia equalled her PB shoot and had the best run finishing second individually, while Rob had a PB shoot and finished in third place. Evelyn finished the run in a personal best time.

In the Novice Juniors, Simon Moody & Laurie Bilton both shot a score of 880, which won them best shoot and Simon went on to have the fastest run in the class. The third member of the team, Kate Bilton also posted a PB in the run.
