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.

Unfortunately I’ve never had my own horse but have been riding since I was 10 and take part in our Advance weekly lessons.
