We presently cater for Show and Dressage enthusiasts and our aim is to promote safe riding practice. Regular clinics, schools, competitions and fun days accommodate all levels of riders. Our goals include the continual growth of the Club and improvements of our assets along with technological advancement to make our club accessible to all.
Apart from regular MARC Days, the Club runs two major open events each year; the Fraser Coast Dressage Championships and the Fraser Coast All Breeds Show.
