Meet the EUEC 2019/2020 Committee!
We've got a top notch team!
Hi, I'm Laura and I'm really looking forward to being your president this year! I'm in my fourth year at Edinburgh studying history, and in my third year of being on the club committee. As a club we pride ourselves on catering to all interests and abilities, so whether you want to compete with our BUCS teams or join on hacks and beach rides, EUEC will have something for you. As president I'm here to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible, so please don't hesitate to email me with any questions, and I look forward to meeting you all this year!
I am a fourth year student studying Business with Marketing. I’ve been a member of the EUEC since first year and this will be my third year on the committee. I was the lessons co-ordinator last year and am Vice-President this year. I’m really excited to continue helping with lessons at the fantastic Tower Farm, whilst developing other aspects of the club too. Unfortunately I’ve never had my own horse but have been riding since I was 10 and take part in our Advance weekly lessons.
I have been part of the Equestrian Club since my Second Year where I had an amazing time getting back into riding after a break of 10 years and made great friends with the Dream Team girls. That summer I travelled to New York to teach riding at a children’s summer camp which was one of the best experiences of my life. During my third year I again competed for the D Team whilst also being the Sponsorship and Fundraising Secretary for the Club’s Committee. During that year I secured the Club our wonderful new sponsor The Dick Vet School as well as launching our first Marathon Festival Initiative where 10 of us ran in different events raising money for Riding for the Disabled. I have made many of my close friends at University through the Equestrian Club and I hope I will make many more this year as the Club’s Secretary.
I’m Andreas, a third year computing student. I’m the club treasurer so look after all the money. I've been on teams the last two years and had a really great time, I’m looking forward to another year with EUEC.

Hey I'm Phoebe. I'm a third year Biomechanical Sciences student and I am the lessons coordinator for EUEC. My role involved organising who's riding in which lessons each week and letting Tower know.

Hi, my name's Immy and I am the social secretary! My role includes organising socials from flat/pub crawls to more wholesome events such as society movie nights.

Hello, I am Violetta and I will be the Alumni officer this year! I will keep in touch with our equestrian grads and their news, sustaining their connection to the club! This is my second year in the university, where I study English Literature and also my second year in teams! I had such an enjoyable time competing with the C-team last year. From laughing in the car ride to training to getting helpful feedback on my riding, I'm so happy to be part of EUEC and I just can't wait for Year 2 to begin!!
