Lauder Common Riding
One of the original Border Common Ridings and there is a reference to a ceremony in Town Council minutes of 1686.
The Lauder Common Riding 2017 will be taking place on 30th July to 5th August 2017. The Common Riding takes place on the 5th August 2017.
Best view for Rideouts – The best viewing areas will be anywhere in the town centre, but the Golf Course is highly recommended. Alternatively, take the B6362 [Stow Road] to the ‘Waterin’ Stane’ at the top of the hill.

Sports, parades, dances and concerts precede the main events on the Saturday when the Cornet receives the Burgh Flag at the Tollbooth. He leads the mounted cavalcade to the Watering Stane and onto the Burgess Cairn, the only boundary stone still in existence. The proceedings conclude with a ceremony at the War Memorial and the return of the flag, with games and horse events in the afternoon.
