Equestrian Competition

Equestrian Competition

RDA facilitates and supports riders to attend a variety of equestrian competitions. Although RDA centres essentially provide grass roots programs, it is exactly these programs that lay the groundwork for future competitions.

RDA centres have been proactive in getting their riders involved in local competitions at Pony Club, Local Shows and Equestrian Groups and Breed Associations. Each year RDAQ hosts the State Championships. Riders, horses, coaches, volunteers and supporters from all around QLD travel to take part in Dressage and Mounted Games competition. To assist, horses are sourced from local Pony Clubs, as well as RDA centres, coaches and volunteers. RDA registered riders are eligible for competition at State and National Championships.

For those riders wishing to take competition more seriously there are options to be officially classified for Para-Equestrian competition, which open opportunities for Official National and International Competition. As well, many RDAQ riders have taken the opportunity to be involved with the QLD Special Olympics squad who have travelled both interstate and overseas.
