Cornet to unveil Horse

The newly-refurbished Horse monument will be unveiled to the public next Thursday night.

The popular landmark
has been shrouded in scaffolding and netting for weeks now while undergoing a £15,000 makeover in time for this year’s Common-Riding.

Restorers from Peebles Beltane Studios have painstaikingly removed 100 years of grime, dirt and debris to bring about what Mosstrooper’s President Cameron Kyle describes as a fantastic transformsation.

The unveiling will be carried out by Cornet Chris Ritson and his lass Heather Amos and will take place at 20.14pm next Thursday.
