Equestrian Australia (EA) congratulates Boyd Exell on winning his 8th FEI World Cup Driving Championship overnight in France.

A member of the Equestrian Australia Hall of Fame, Exell dominated the four-in-hand final in Bordeaux and scored an easy win over his high-class rivals.

“We went fast. I had to live on instincts and drive,” said Exell.

“There was no room for error and that’s what a good final should be.”

“My sister and parents were up all night watching and I’m pleased for them too,” he said.

The 45-year-old’s remarkable FEI World Cup record is unrivalled. No other driver in the history of the sport has achieved this feat.

Equestrian Australia CEO Paula Ward saluted Exell:

“This is an unparalleled achievement. Boyd Exell is the most successful Australian Equestrian to compete in the FEI World Cup Championships. He is a champion and a wonderful ambassador for our sport, and his achievements inspire so many in our community,” said Ward.
