Zilco brought out the SL Sportz driving harness to compliment the existing SL Shetland for drivers who wanted a bit more from their harness and preferred the use of an Empathy collar. The basis of the Empathy collar is that it allows for a wider distribution of weight by making full use of the pulling area available on the pony. This is particularly useful on small ponies where the area between wind pipe and point of shoulder is limited allowing only for a fairly narrow breastplate of traditional design.

Made from the same World renowned quality materials as all the top range Zilco harnesses you can be assured that the harness will remain safe through many years of service. It will not stretch or break when you need it the most. Years of experience mean that Zilco have designed their harnesses perfectly for a comfortable fit and ease of maintenance.

This is the ideal harness for both Shetlands and small ponies and each part is also available separately, an invaluable option not offered by other harness manufacturers. This allows you to build up the harness gradually if necessary for economic reasons. It also means that if a part is lost it can be simply replaced without the need to purchase a whole new harness. Additionally the SL and SL Mini are compatible in most parts meaning a smaller part can be introduced in any area if required. Simply visit our SL and SL Mini Parts Section to view the range.

If a more traditional style breastplate is desired then the SL Shetland would be more appropriate
