The City of Edinburgh Horse Show

In light of the Government advice surrounding Covid-19, it is with great regret that we had to to cancel The City of Edinburgh Horse Show in both May and August 2020.

We hope to be able to run both shows in 2021, so please keep an eye here and on our Facebook page.

The City of Edinburgh Horse Show was introduced in 2014 as a main fundraising event for the Edinburgh Riding of the Marches which takes place on the Royal Mile every September.  The Edinburgh Riding of the Marches is purely funded by monies raised by the  volunteer members of the Committee of the Edinburgh March Riding Association, who are all passionate about keeping the tradition and heritage alive for the City of Edinburgh.

This prestigious horse show is no exception and attracts around 300 competitors from all over Scotland, held at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre every year.  Now recognised as one of Scotland’s most prestigious equestrian events on the showing circuit, the City of Edinburgh Horse Show is attracting major sponsors from both the corporate and the equestrian world. Meticulously planned, organised, it has attracted leading sponsors and competitors, year on year.

There are over 40 classes at The City of Edinburgh Horse Show, which also include qualifying classes and championships for the following:

TSR Showing Finals

Veteran Horse Society Area Qualifier

Caledonian Showing Championships

– TGCA Qualifiers (Traditional Gypsy Cob Association)

Ingliston Elite Championship Qualifiers

– ROR (Retraining of Racehorses)

Champions from the City of Edinburgh Horse Show have also qualified and ridden at the Horse of the Year Show and the Royal Highland Show, with the equestrian press following their progress.
