Scope and content

Referred to by all who regularly go to this ploughing match 'three Fs and a B' ie Fairford, Faringdon, Filkins & Burford, the match offers ploughing competitions of very many classes from horses to the most modern reversible ploughs pulled by very high powered tractors, some of which cost more than a house. These two pictures are of a team of horses. While the plough is behind the horses, it is attached to the heavy, padded collar which the horses lean into and push against, so technically, the horses move the plough through the soil by a pushing action, not pulling.
