River Crossing, Galashiels
Braw Lads day is a ceremonial ride out, established in 1930 to commemorate events and associations in the history of the town. It is led by the Braw Lad and Braw Lass along with their four Attendants, Bearer of the Sod, Bearer of the Red Roses, Bearer of the Stone and Bearer of the White Roses, who carry out ceremonies along the route.

Around 350 riders on horseback will follow a planned route from the muster point at Netherdale car park to the Burgh Chambers where they will be met by the Braw Lad and Braw Lass and attendants. From there they ford the Tweed to Abbotsford and will then ford the Tweed again to Boleside before crossing the A7 and galloping up over Gala Hill to Hollybush. The event concludes with a mounted cavalcade up Scott Street and then back to the War Memorial where the Braw Lad will carry out the dipping of the flag ceremony whilst the rest of the riders make their way back to Netherdale car park.
