Could you be the next Chief Marshal?
Chief Marshal –
Right Hand Man –
Left Hand Man – Julia Szoneberg
I can’t believe this is my final year as a principal. 30th of April 2022 was a dream come true for me and an honour to be given the opportunity to carry the Standard down the high street through hundreds of spectators, followed by the cavalcade.
My two years as Principal has been the best experience of my life, visiting other towns and making lifelong friends along the way. I’ve had some great highs and some lows and would like to pay tribute to Sabre, you were the best horse I could ever ask for and the memories I have of us galloping up Flodden hill, doing what you loved the most, I will cherish for the rest of my life!!!
I would like to thank Courtnay and Merci who will be stepping down this year, Courtnay thank you for your support and guidance and for all the fun and laughter throughout the season, and to Merci, you have been a fantastic Mascot and we have had lots of fun together, you and your family should be very proud as you have represented your town to the highest standard, and I hope to see you in the near future wearing a sash as a Principal.
Kieran, I hope you have a great year as Chief Marshal, carrying the flag will be an experience you will never forget, so make the most of every second.I would also like to welcome our new Right hand Gemma Dodds to the team and wish you all the luck in your 3 years as a Principal, you are going to have the best time, and make the most amazing memories.I would like to thank all the land owners, sponsors, friends and supporters and of course our fantastic committee who work so hard behind the scenes to make Bounds day the huge success that it is today, and for all your support and guidance over the last two years.
To all my friends I thank you as without you I would have never been able to fulfil this lifelong dream.
Finally to my husband Derek and our fabulous boys Dariusz, Jake and Caden, my brother Justin, you have all been my rock and by my side from day one, and for everything you have done for me, I will be forever grateful.
Finally, I would like to wish you all a great day, and don’t forget to give us a wave as we go past, so here’s to The Riding Of The Bounds 2023.
SAFE OOT SAFE IN!! HIP HIP!!!
Mascot 2023 – Morgan Hunter
I’m so happy to be Mascot for 2023
I have always dreamed that I would become part of the Annual riding of the bounds. My first memory watching the ride is from my grandad’s shoulders, telling everyone that I’d be up there and part of it someday.
I hope I can show any young people thinking about taking up riding that it is so worth it!!
I look forward to riding alongside Julia, Gemma and of course Kieran our Chief Marshal not just for the riding of the bounds, but throughout the other border towns too!
‘Safe out Safe In’ to all taking part in the Riding of the Bounds this year. Hip Hip!!
