We love involving the community as much as possible, which is why we try to have such a varied week of events and over the last few years tried to incorporate more and more for children.
We introduced a Junior Hunter and Lass in 2017 after taking on board a suggestion by a helpful member of the public.
Each year a different local primary school will make the selection from Primary Six pupils, following a nomination process similar to the Hunter and Lass.
This year our Junior Hunter is Struan Fraser and Junior Hunter’s Lass is Ruby Hastings both from Strathesk Primary School. Both are very excited and looking forward to getting involved.

“I am happy I was chosen to represent Strathesk as Junior Hunter with my friend, Ruby. I am looking forward to being involved in all the events happening this year.”
Junior Hunter’s Lass – Ruby Hastings
“When I found out I was representing Strathesk Primary as Junior Lass I could not stop smiling. I was so happy when I got home and told my Mum. I love horses and so I’m excited to meet my one and ride it through Penicuik! Looking forward to all the activities and events that I will be involved in this year!”
