Ploughing

Traditional Horse Ploughing is a method largely forgotten in agriculture today, however a small number of dedicated horsemen keep the skill alive, passed down from previous generations. Every year dozens of competitors make the trip from across the UK to the largest ploughing event of its kind at Mullahead. The Match is home to the “Ulster Horse Ploughing Championships” and it is a real spectacle to see so many finely decorated horses working side by side.

Mullahead also hosts the “All Ireland Ferguson Ploughing Championships” with classes for both modern and vintage tractors. Take a moment to speak to either a competitor or judge and you will soon appreciate the level of skill and precision required to achieve such exemplary ploughing!
