Selkirk Common Riding 2013

Selkirk commemorates and celebrates her history at the annual Common Riding, always held on the second Friday after the first Monday in June, when the town's boundaries or 'marches' are ridden. Usually in the region of 300-400 mounts, Selkirk boasts one of the largest cavalcade of horses and riders in Europe. The culmination of the day involves the town's Standard Bearer ( Martin Rodgerson 2013 ) casting, or flying, the town's standard (A St Andrew's cross with the town seal placed in the centre) in the Market Place in memory of Fletcher's "O' Flodden Field", consolidating the ceremony's late-medieval / early-modern historical roots.
