Equestrian Club

From complete beginners to advanced competitors, we have something for everyone here at EUEC!


Riding Lessons:

At EUEC we are excited to be able to offer lessons at two riding schools in order to cater for all abilities! Our Novice, Intermediate and Advanced lessons are at ‘Tower Farm Riding Stables’, and our beginner lessons are at ‘Edinburgh & Lasswade Riding Centre’ with both centres having a variety of horses/ponies to ensure that the horse you ride is suitable for you and your capability. Our lesson times, costs and ability required for each group are detailed on our social media pages and sign up info will be released on a weekly basis throughout the semester so make sure to follow us using the links below!

If you have any questions regards to lessons please get in contact with Shannon and Julie our 2024/25 lessons co-ordinators at euec.lessons@gmail.com!


BUCS Teams:

For those who are more competitive, we also have 4 teams competing in the British University and College Sports (BUCS) Leagues. Our teams compete against other Scottish Universities, aiming to qualify for the BUCS National Championships each year. Our A-team rode brilliantly, coming 2nd overall at the 2024 National Championships, retaining our legacy from our win in the 2022/23 season! 

Unlike most equestrian competitions BUCS is unique as we are required to ride unknown horses! Each show, competitors will ride two horses, one through a novice level dressage test and another through a show jumping course with points combined for the final standings. As own horses are not required, BUCS is a great way to keep up riding at university, while meeting lots of other horsey people! For those interested, there will be oppertunities to sign up during welcome week with trials being held from w/c 23rd September.

This year we will be training at Tannoch Valley Equestrian with our training sessions split between Monday and Tuesday evenings, and are mandatory for team members. 

If you have any questions regards to Teams or are interested in joining this year, please get in contact with Emma our 2024/25 BUCS Captain at euec_bucs@hotmail.com!
