The E.H.S.C. is a non-profit organization of approximately 200 members, founded in 1962 for the promotion, education and enjoyment of equestrian activities. We own 50 acres on the corner of Eureka and Old State Roads in Franklin Center, just outside Erie, PA. We are easily accessible from interstates 90 and 79.

Our facility is comprised of two sand show / Dressage rings, stabling for 110 horses (with running water), a club house with kitchen, both permanent and portable sound systems, stadium fences and a cross country course that can support Beginner Novice through Intermediate levels.

We hold a number of horse-related events per summer, including a USEA recognized Horse Trials and a Dressage Show. In addition to the shows we offer clinics throughout the year, contribute to area charities, support our local Pony Club and 4H Clubs.

EHSC general membership meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month and are open to anyone. Our programs include lectures, films, demonstrations and activities involving all aspects of horse health, care and riding.

We feel there are many organizations, groups and individuals who may benefit from an association with the EHSC. Our current member services include free use of the grounds and club house with permission of president or vice-president, eligibility for year end awards, reduced rates at certain shows and functions, reduced stabling at most shows, preferential entry for limited entry functions, a monthly news letter and an annual membership directory.

We believe we can offer more with your help. We are always looking for ways to improve our Club and offer better shows and events.

The EHSC Club Grounds are available for lease, whether horse related or not. For information call any EHSC Board Member.  (2020 Grounds Fees
