“We use Equine America Apple Lytes to replenish lost electolytes, help keep the horses hydrated and therefore able to maintain optimum performance throughout the whole competition. Also importantly, the horses like the taste!”

Boyd’s competitive spirit has shaped the sportsman he has become today. Celebrated with a string of accolades including Reem Acra Best Athlete and Ariat International Athlete of the Year awards, Boyd has also been honoured with the Order of Australia Medal in recognition of his services to equestrian sport, in particular four-in-hand carriage driving.
