Fraser Coast Interschool Equestrian Competition (FCIEC) is an innovative concept introduced in 2006 by forward thinking teachers from Riverside Christian College. The College continues to host this annual schools-based event attracting students from throughout the greater south east Queensland area.
FCIEC was designed to cater for the needs of the children who don’t necessarily compete in other (open) equestrian competition and give them a platform to experience several different disciplines in a supportive environment. The ethos of the event has been embraced by the wider school’s community and since its inception has grown from 40 competitors to being capped at 250 riders. This makes it the largest schools based equine competition in Queensland.
It is an intense 3 days of competition for these young riders who are enthusiastic to the end!
