Golden Plough in Lyndhurst a huge success

Lyndhurst Golf Club was the centre of action this weekend with the running of the Golden Plough held in somewhat cold conditions.

Traditionally held at Eugowra, this year's event made a return at Lyndhurst Golf Club and Team Penning Grounds with one of the events organisers Cowra's Jason Gavenlock taking out the Golden Plough.

It was Gavenlock's second win in the event. He was also successful in 2019.

And there was more than just the coveted Golden Plough itself: there were events for the novice, ladies and even junior events last Saturday before the running of the Golden Plough on Sunday.

Gabby Dray won the Junior Plough trophy and congratulations to Karina Berzins on taking home the Ladies Ploughing trophy.

Jason Gavenlock's pair of Australian Draught Horses worked carefully and confidently to plough a near perfect plot and take out the Golden Plough.

Steve Johnson from Larne Draught Horse Stud was at the event talking about draught horses, how he works them and how he looks after them.
