Teries made the short trip to Selkirk last Friday to join in the Royal Burgh’s annual celebrations.

The day was blessed with glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures for the annual Riding of the Marches, which was boosted by around 10 Hawick riders and dozens more supporters on foot.

These included Right Hand Man Ross Gibson and Acting Father Richie Lynn, the latter stating: “My horse was lame, but we went over early to support our Cornet and Selkirk’s day. And we were back at night for the ball, which was great.”

Cornet Hepburn was the only Hawick Principal to saddle up, but Hawick Provost Stuart Marshall (pictured far right) was also there flying the Hawick flag. He stated: “Councillor Watson McAteer and I attended the Provost’s breakfast and the atmosphere was brilliant. It was great to see such a large contingent of Hawick folk supporting Selkirk’s Common Riding, and to meet up with our own principals.”
