Common Ridings season is drawing to a close in the Scottish Borders - and today (July 11) it was Jedburgh's turn.
The event draws riders and crowds alike from across the Borders, and marks the historical battles between the Scottish and the English that took place hundreds of years ago.
Now, however, the event is more of a social affair as Jenny Longden reports.
This year's Jethart Callants Festival is underway.
The annual ride mimics the riding of the boundaries to fend off unwanted visitors, and has been held in the town since 1947.
Jack Fraser is the third person in his family to have the honour of being the Callant.
He will take the flag and exclaim 'Jethart's here', before leading the cavalcade through the town.
Crowds are beginning to line the street of Jedburgh for the annual Jethart Callants Festival.
The event is part of the Border's Common Riding season.
Hundreds of horses and riders are expected to take part in Jedburgh's Jethart Callants Festival today.
The event, which is part of the Borders' common riding season, is steeped in history and tradition and mimics the riding of the boundaries to fend off unwanted English visitors.
