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 over 500 entries 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 interest from the equestrian world. Meticulously planned and organised, the Show is a superb event for novices to pro’s.

There are over 30 classes at The City of Edinburgh Horse Show, which also include qualifying classes and championships for the following:
