Tiaro event a chance for young riders to qualify for state

TIARO Pony Club will provide Fraser Coast riders another chance to qualify for the State Dressage, Combined Training & Horse Trials Championships.

The Pony Club of Queensland event will be held at Beaudesert from July 1, which leaves riders about seven weeks to qualify.

One of those opportunities will be at the Dressage & Combined Training Championships at Tiaro on Sunday morning.

Riders from three-years-old to seniors will compete in two rounds of dressage and one round of showjumping.

Tiaro Pony Club's Debbie Iker said there was about 25 riders set for each event.

"They need to have four Qs to qualify for state so we're giving them another chance to get them," Iker said.

Riders from Gympie, Calliope and the Sunshine Coast are expected to travel to Tiaro for the Mother's Day event.

The event, which is free to watch, starts about 8am.
