Welcome to Maryborough Active Riders Club Website

The Maryborough Active Riders Club has approximately 100 members and includes riders and non riding family members ranging from toddlers right through to seniors.
We presently cater for Show and Dressage enthusiasts and our aim is to promote safe riding practice. We provide regular clinics, schools, competitions and fun days to 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.

The PIC for the Maryborough Showgrounds is QBMB0072.

Apart from regular MARC Days, the Club runs two major open events each year; namely, the Fraser Coast Dressage Championships and the Fraser Coast All Breeds Show.

Members are encouraged to participate at all our Competition Days and points are awarded throughout the year to riders and their mounts, culminating in the High Point Award Presentations Dinner each December. These Awards are presented at our end of year celebrations.
Please send all correspondence via email to a committee member, or mail to P. O. Box 563, Maryborough, Qld 4650.
