Fi's Evening Mini Ride Out....

Thursday had all Primary School aged children excited for there turn to ride with the Cornet... DH counted around 95 young riders on there ponies. Some children are lucky enough to have there own poinies others are able to hire in ponies from as far a field as Edinburgh, Peebles and Innerleithen. Some children were on lead rein other more confident and able riders went along themselves. This ride lasts around an hour and tours around the Park here in Hawick following the Cornet with his Right and Left Hand Men and the Acting Father......As usual Parents, Grandparents and Friends line the streets to cheer them on.....
