The Edinburgh Riding of the Marches

Taking its roots from the historical Common Ridings of Scotland, 280 horses traverse the ancient Royal Mile.

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.
