One of the principals in the Galashiels Common Ridings is recovering from falling off his horse.
Fraser Anderson, who was the 2014 Melrosian, cracked several ribs and sustained bumps and bruises when he fell off during a 4-hour ride out near Cauldshiels Loch.
The accident delayed the start of the Braw Lads Ride out while an air ambulance was called out, due to the inaccessibility of the area and concern for his condition.
His father Ian thanked everyone who helped on Fraser's Facebook page.
But thousands of people still packed the streets of Galashiels to cheer on Braw Lad Cameron Pate and Braw Lass Abbie Frankland.
Crowds turned out in the sunshine in Galashiels, for the latest event in the annual Common Ridings season.
