We are delighted to announce that registration for our 2023 Lanimer Equestrian Events is now OPEN!
To ensure that the Lord Cornets’ Club can effectively manage the safety of all riders during the 2023 Lanimer Week Equestrian Events – it is a mandatory requirement that ALL riders are registered with the Club and that they hold adequate riders insurance for our various events.
Riders are required to register for ALL equestrian events which they are looking to participate, including the Marches procession on Monday 5th June and our new event for 2023, our Lanimer Junior Ride*.
(*This new ride, which will take place on the afternoon of Sunday 28th of May has been included to introduce a slower paced ride that can be ridden under lead rein or for riders who still want to participate in Lanimer equestrian events outwith our processions but at a slower pace than our Official Tuesday or our Lanimer Afternoon rideouts.)
Registration is completely FREE via the online form below. Please ensure that all fields are completed prior to submission.
The Lanimer Committee is delighted to announce that Ross Fitzgerald has been selected as the Lord Cornet Elect for 2023.
A well known and hard working member of the Lanimer Committee, Ross has been a Committee Convener for the past 8 years, responsible for organising and coordinating our annual perambulation the Marches.
This year will be all the more special as Ross will lead up the perambulation on Monday the 5th June in advance of his installation as Lord Cornet at the Shifting of the Standard Ceremony.
An experienced rider, Ross is looking forward to representing the Royal Burgh of Lanark at Common Rides and festivals around the country. Ross has also been the official Lanimer Farrier for a number of years, bringing his professional skills to support our Lanimer Equestrian events.
2023 won’t be Ross’ first time riding in the Lanimer Procession in an official capacity, having held roles of both Outrider and First Lord in the Lanimer Court.
The selection committee, comprising representatives from various organisations within the Royal Burgh, visited Ross on Sunday evening and he was delighted to accept the role.
“I’m honestly still in shock!” said Ross, “I didn’t expect them to turn up, I think it’s the only time in my life I’ve been speechless!”
We wish Ross a very enjoyable year in office and would like to wish him, his family, friends and supporters a very HAPPY LANIMERS!
