Thousands of people turned out in Lockerbie for the annual Riding of the Marches and Gala Day.
Around 130 horses and riders took part in the festivities, and below is a video montage of some of the highlights:
Thousands of people from Lockerbie have turned out for the annual Riding of the Marches and Gala.
The elected Cornet, his Lass and the Standard Bearer lead a cavalcade of around 130 horses and riders around the boundaries of the town.
Historically, the principals and their followers would check the boundaries for intruders, and chase them off if any were found.
This year marks the biggest turnout for many years, with the sunny weather making a difference.
The annual tradition is a highlight for the town, who turn out in their thousands to cheer on the horses and riders.
After the cavalcade return to the town centre, the Gala day begins, with a special parade for this year's Gala Queen.
