RDAQ State Championships

The RDAQ Board is excited to invite all eligible riders and non-riders to participate in the 2023 RDAQ State Championships to be held on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th August 2023 at the Maryborough Showgrounds & Equestrian Park.

It is hoped that as many riders, volunteers and coaches from RDAQ affiliated centres will travel to beautiful Maryborough to learn new skills at the 2023 Central Qld RDAQ Workshop on the Thursday 3rd & Friday 4th August 2023 and then stay on to have fun while competing in the championship events.

As well as Working Trails and Para-Dressage events, this year the program includes two new competitions – Handy Pony Obstacle course event and a Team Fancy Dress event. The aim is to enjoy and celebrate all that spending time with a horse can give to not only our RDA athletes but also RDA volunteers and coaches. So, discuss participating as a competitor or as a volunteer with the Senior Coach at your RDA centre and come join the fun!
