International Tetrathlon is held every second year and is now hosted by the UK and Ireland, with participants spending part of the tour in one country and the rest of the tour in the second country. The US and Canada now host their own exchange in separate years.
Tetrathlon is comprised of Riding, Running, Swimming and Shooting, with slight differences in each country. For example, although most countries shoot with air pistols, in Ireland all competitors sometimes use rifles.
