THE build-up to the Common Riding continued on Sunday with the ride-out to the Craig.
Cornet Henry Jeffrey and his right and left-hand men Iain Little and Stuart Murray led 25 riders from the Kilngreen on a very warm afternoon.
Before the set off, the Cornet’s parents Frances and Gavin Jeffrey, judged the ponies.
Ellie Scott won the James Harkness memorial trophy for the best-turned-out pony ridden by a pupil from Langholm Academy.
Cree McGarva picked up the Craig quaich for the best-turned-out pony among all the participants. This is the second year in which Cree has won the quaich.
The Cornet presented them with the trophies during the refreshment stop at the Craig.
Iain Lindsley, Castle Craigs Club president, thanked the landowners of Frances Hislop, Jim Robertson and Will Ewart for letting them use their land.
The riders, refreshed, mounted up and headed up the hill at a gallop as they began their journey back to Langholm.
