RIDERS, spectators and hounds took to the streets as part of a Boxing Day tradition.

Supporters of the Corbridge hunters gathered and cheered in Corbridge Market Place as a parade of huters rode trough the town.

The annual event also invited smaller riders to join in the parade through town and crowds were able to interact with the animals before the hunt.

"We had a great Boxing Day Meet in Corbridge with a fantastic turnout in support of the Tynedale Hunt. As is tradition, riders and hounds always meet in the market square on Boxing Day. There were no issues with traffic; in fact the whole event had a fantastic atmosphere and was very well received by the local community and businesses," said a spokesperson for the Tynedale Hunt.

Here are a few photos from the day.
