The Edinburgh Riding of the Marches is one of Edinburgh’s largest public events, taking place right in the heart of the Scottish capital every September.
Taking its roots from the historical Common Ridings of Scotland, 280 horses will traverse the ancient Royal Mile on Sunday 17th September 2017. This spectacular cavalcade is a re-enactment of the return of the Captain of the Trained Band (responsible for keeping order within the City) to Edinburgh with the tragic news of defeat at the battle of Flodden, 1513.
Every year, the elected Edinburgh Captain and Lass will lead over 250 horses up Edinburgh’s Royal Mile towards the Mercat Cross, in what has proven to be a fantastic spectacle, with resonating historical and cultural significance.
We hope that you will be able to join us for what will be a truly memorable day as we celebrate the history of our great city.
