A number of principals from other Border towns attended the event organised by Berwick Riders’ Association.

Its main event is the Riding of the Bounds on May 1. It takes place on a Sunday this year with around 50 horses and riders expected to participate in a 15-mile ride around the town’s ancient boundaries, maintaining a 400-year-old tradition.
