Zilco ZGB Team Harness
Zilco ZGB is the popular original harness for all types of driving. This is the most robust model in Zilco's driving harness range and is ideally suited to tough marathons and commercial work. It is, however, still smart enough to be used in the dressage phase. The main difference between this harness and the Zilco Elite is the breastplate which has integral traces that can be adjusted at the carriage end. The ZGB and Elite are the harnesses of choice used by almost all HDT drivers in the UK. For smaller ponies the Zilco Classic can be used as both ZGB and Elite start at Cob size.
The breastplate can be used in either single or pair making it versatile and it can be personalised with the addition of coloured trims. These can be purchased as an option with the harness or purchased separately at a later date. The integration of the traces to the breastplate creates a sleeker line and allows for free running without interference by the bellyband or driving saddle, particularly helpful if your horse or pony is slightly small for the size range where an Elite breastplate might be long and snag
The quality of Zilco harness is unsurpassed and it can be relied upon in the toughest of conditions not to break or stretch. Made from the World renowned polymer coated webbing maintenance couldn't be easier and a simple wipe down with warm soapy water is quite sufficient. Your ZGB harness will offer many many years of untroubled service and is well known for it's longevity.
A huge benefit of Zilco harness is the availability of parts which are all available for separate purchase. This is rarely if ever offered by other harness manufacturers and enables the user to replace a lost part without the need to replace the whole harness. This is also invaluable if you change horse or your existing horse matures and fills out necessitating a larger part to be introduced. You may also wish to build up your harness set over time, perhaps replacing an existing set of harness and being reluctant to pay for a whole harness in one lump.
