Product: Migliori Dressage Saddle Pad
The Migliori Dressage Pad, a style queens dream. Durable black quilting with purple and silver satin twirled cord. This pad also comes in a great range of different colours including basics like black, brown, navy and grey. Then for the more daring there is RASPBERRY, TURQUOISE and TANGERINE!
Ippico rates the ‘Migilori’ as a premium quality dressage saddle pad. It is made from 100% Australian merino sheepskin! The pad is extremely soft and comfortable for your horse, whilst also ensuring breathability, and a moisture wick as the sheepskin can absorb up to 25% of its weight in moisture.
All of Ippico’s sheepskin saddle cloth products also come with a washing bag to ensure safe cleaning.
Its safe to say this is my favourite saddle pad for dressage. Full of benefits for my horse, whilst ensuring we look our best too.
Product: Montare Synthetic Leather Grain Sheepskin Brushing Boots
LOVE LOVE LOVE! The perfect everyday training boot and the perfect competition boot.
The Montare brushing boots are lined with the plush 100% Australian Sheepskin for the ultimate comfort and protection of the horses lower leg.
Over the years I have noticed the quality of boots decline, when you think about it.. the boots are on the legs of a 600kg animal. They need to be strong and durable! Ippico boots have been on my solid, welsh cob now for over a year and a half with no signs of damage, weakness or degrading. The velcro is strong and ensures a firm and comfortable wrap around the horses leg, using a natural fibre, sheepskin, rather than synthetic fleece, ensures a soft and flexible pliable fit. Ippico has ensured their fabrics have been reinforced for extra strength and durability.
Product: Roeckl Gloves
Ippico stocks Roeckl Gloves. I have always loved wearing gloves, however have always hated getting sweaty hands, or loosing grip in the rain. I have found the Roeckl brand to be fantastic no matter the conditions, they allow me to have a soft but steady grip on my reins and never feel like I am not connected with the horse.
The Roeckl-Grip Gloves are made from exclusive material that makes them extremely breathable, elastic and supple. Perfect for the Australian rider where the weather can be so unpredictable. The specific design allows them to fit like a second skin which ensures excellent tactility for handling the reins.
Product: Lucci Sheepskin Numnah
The Lucci Numnah is one of my go to for everyday riding. I love this product with my jumping saddle as it ensures me a great fit no matter the changes in my horses muscle or weight. Just like the other Ippico products, the Lucci numnah sports 100% Australian sheepskin and highly durable quilting.
The colour range is fantastic with something for everyone. Colours including; white, black, grey, navy and brown. The contoured design aids in improving your saddle fit, as well as acting as an excellent shock absorber. With a spineless design that allow for air to follow freely along your horses spine.
Sheepskin fibres act as an excellent moisture wick, and it conducts heats slower than any other fibre, therefore reducing resisting rapid temperature changes.
EXTREMLY SOFT AND COMFORTABLE! I wish I could have one as a pillow!
Product: Dolce Sheepskin Girth Cover/Girths
The Ippico girth covers also fit other popular girths on the market, but they are made to fit Ippico girths which are part of their girth sets.
Foxtrot Horsewear is an Australian owned and designed women’s equestrian label. Their equestrian wear is designed exclusively in our Melbourne studio through a creative, collaborative process with riders they are inspired by and have their eye firmly on global fashion trends.
The Foxtrot story began with a vision to source luxury fabrics and combine these with performance qualities in pieces for the everyday rider.

Product: Collins Quilted Riding Vest

I love this vest because it is perfect for Melbourne’s temperamental weather, I can weather it for summer evenings, spring days and layer up throughout winter.

So good I wear it to the shops, the gym and pretty much any where! Nice large pockets, a hood and high quality zips. There is nothing to fault with this vest.
You may be wondering what Celliant® is and how it works?
By insulating this horse riding vest using Celliant’s infrared technology, your body’s own metabolism and energy production is used to recycle and convert radiant body heat into infrared energy. As a result of the deep penetration into the tissue through infrared energy increasing oxygen and blood flow, the body is better able to regulate body temperature and adjust to the external environment. This makes Celliant ideal for both cool and warm climates.

Product: Auburn Riding Jacket
I love the Auburn Riding Jacket. I live in Gisborne South, which is just near the Macedon Ranges and during winter we even got SNOW! The Auburn Riding Jacket was my everyday jacket. No matter where I was going, I wore it because I knew it would keep me warm. I used to wear 3-4 layers of tops and jackets to keep warm whilst riding and working on our farm. Then I discovered the Foxtrot Horsewear Auburn Riding Jacket and my life changed forever!!!!!! I actually had to start stripping the layers down the just a long sleeved top. This piece has many great features such as the flattering fit, large pockets, adjustable cuffs and the soft warm lining.
