This two-horse team with their two humans came from Middlemarch, Otago to compete in the National Ploughing Championships 2018 at Thornbury, Southland, New Zealand.
Sean Leslie the ploughman began horse ploughing five years ago. Casey Rae drives the horses, she began in May 2017 and loves it. The Clydesdale horses are Anna and Nugget. Nugget has already competed in three finals but this is the first national event for Anna. The plough is a Reid and Gray single furrow plough.
There’s a lovely photo of the team (humans and horses) in this article published 13 April 2018 – its where I found the above information. Ploughing with horses ‘luck of the draw’ from Rural Life. Nice photo and a good read.
