Many students at Matthew Flinders Anglican College ride horses and opportunities exist for equestrians to represent the College each year.
The College equestrian team is open to Primary and Secondary students.
Competitions run all year, with selected events contested on an individual and team basis, which includes many of the major inter-school events in Brisbane in Terms 1–3, and the local and state show circuit and state and national titles. Interest is developing among riders to form teams to compete in QISEA Dressage and Showman events.
The biggest event of the year is the annual Matthew Flinders Charity Show Jumping Day supporting the Sunshine Coast Children’s Therapy Centre, held at the Nambour Showgrounds during Term 3, at which many present and past Flinders families get wholeheartedly involved.
Team meetings are held in the lead up to competitions; there is no formal team training.
