Karen McNamara, from Charleville, has a very special link to the 50th anniversary of Proston’s famous Golden Spurs Campdraft.

Not only did she win the special Invitational Draft held at the weekend to mark the anniversary, but her dad Ken Payne won the very first Golden Spurs event held back in 1963.

Campdraft spokeswoman Jodie Anderson said all past Golden Spurs winners had been invited to take part in the Invitational event.

Karen was invited back to compete as she was the winner in the 1997.

Over the years, only four women riders have been successful so that makes Karen’s win in the 50th Anniversary Invitational even more special.

About 400 competitors and spectators were at the Proston Sportsground for the event.

The 50th winner of the Golden Spurs was decided on Saturday morning. The winner, Kellie Bond on Bentley, was then invited to take part in the Invitational held in the afternoon.
