    Come for a relaxing hack at Tower Farm Riding Stables to unwind after your first week of lectures! Ride through the beautiful countryside around Edinburgh. Suitable for both novices and advanced riders, with hacks at 2pm and 3pm respectively. Novice riders should be comfortable in walk. Advanced riders must be comfortable in canter as the hack will be fast-paced. Meet for the bus at 12:50pm at the Potterrow Bus Stop (the bus stop next to Ransacked Black Oven). £17 per rider.

    We try and offer our members as many opportunities as possible to participate in or audit local professionals' events, such as Ian Stark's clinics in nearby Selkirk.

  • Socials, Hangouts, Parties and Club Nights

    Come join us for all types of socials, from relaxing at the pub after a ride to clubbing all night!

  • Pub Nights

    Every Wednesday you can find committee members and club members having drinks and food at our sponsor pub, The Pear Tree. Come and join us for a bite or a pint!

    Sports Ball

    Every year the social event that everyone in EUEC looks forward to is Sports Ball, where all the clubs in the sport union attend a black tie night of dinner, dancing and awards.

    Club Nights

    For the party animals among us, EUEC club nights are not to be missed! Starting with pres at an obliging members flat before moving on to whatever club is the choice of the night, these socials will be the highlight of your week.

    Bake-Off and PJ Socials

    Sometimes we at EUEC just like to kick back and enjoy a horsey movie screening, or the finale of a favourite baking show. Either way pyjamas and junk food are the order of the night, along with the possibility of a nightcap or two.

    Lessons Dinners

    We like to organise nights for lessons riders to go to dinner at our sponsor pub, The Pear Tree, as its a great way to bond with your fellow riders and enjoy each other's company in a relaxed setting.

    Christmas Meal

    Every year we organise a massive dinner for as many members of the club as possible to come enjoy a meal together at our sponsor pub, The Pear Tree, before everyone heads home for their Christmas Holiday.
