Boyd Exell - World Champion and Harness Expert

World cup team

Boyd has a number of teams in training at any one time, and prefers Zilco harness because of it's lightness, ease of cleaning and versatility. His hardworking assistants spend hours a day simply harnessing and unharnessing, so they appreciate a harness that makes the job easy. Pictured above, the World Cup team on exercise in preparation for the World Cup winter series. They have already clocked up some impressive wins over the past few seasons. The harness used is a Classic, with clincher browbands and ground vision blinkers.
