A special procession of the historic Borders common ridings has taken place at the Royal Highland Show.
Riders from Hawick, Selkirk, Jedburgh, West Linton, Peebles, Melrose, Kelso, Duns, Lauder and Coldstream paraded in the show's main ring on Sunday.
A special "casting of the colours" flag ceremony was performed by Selkirk Standard Bearer James Cheyne.
Councillor Vicky Davidson said it was a chance to "raise the profile of the Borders to an international audience".
The event is designed to help celebrate Scotland's Year of Homecoming.
Royal Highland Show Manager David Dunsmuir described it as a "perfect fit" for proceedings at the Ingliston event.
"We want homecoming visitors to see something of the traditions of Scotland and what better than the ancient celebrations of the Borders common ridings?" he said.
"Not only that, there is a huge equestrian interest at the show and the ridings will make a fantastic spectacle for our main ring audience."
