Northcoast Active Riders Group is located at Nambour Showgrounds in the heart of the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Often known as “NAGs” our club was established in the late 1970’s embracing a number of equestrian disciplines, but now functions as a dressage focused club conducting competitions, clinics and social training days for riders of all levels and ages.
NAGs ‘Closed Restricted’ (formerly Members / Social) days provide a relaxed non-competitive environment for members to ride a dressage test and obtain feedback from the judge, and re-ride the test shortly afterwards if they wish. These events provide an excellent training opportunity for riders at all levels as well as a fun social atmosphere for all involved.
NAGs ‘Closed / Closed Unrestricted’ Days (formerly Associate Training) are open to EA Competitors and Participants (up to Novice), NAGs members, and NAGs Affiliate members. These competitions offer tests from Preparatory to Advanced levels and placegetters are awarded ribbons. NAGs Members who place in the top-ten of each class accrue points towards the Sandale Saddlery Leader board Competition. NAGs Dressage Championships – Closed / Closed Unrestricted are held in September this year.
NAGs also offer Official Competitive Dressage Days in April, and May which attract riders from all over Queensland. The Sunshine Coast Dressage Championships are run over two days in May showcasing our sport’s elite athletes up to Grand Prix level.
