Horseland Tack Talk

Horseland logo

Hello Team Joyce are excited to announce Horseland Tack Talk. We have many reasons for using things around the stables. It could be related to the tack feed or just something to make a job easier at the Lals Haven Warmblood Stud.

Let us discuss all the options in Horseland Tack Talk.

Team Joyce are proudly sponsored by Horseland and will of course suggest you purchase products from your local store but more importantly they are a successful family owned and operated Australian business, the first Horseland store opened in 1978 and had evolved over the last 30 years to become Australia’s largest Equestrian retailer with 54 stores Australia wide


Dublin Taupe breeches

Tiffany expressed her desire to find a good fitting pair of breeches. She did not want white and not to tight a more relaxed fit. But still looking smart and NOT consisting of the see through material. Horseland stock the perfect pair. The Dublin Prime Full seat breeches in a shade of Taupe. 

Available in other colours 🙂

Schokemohle saddle blanket

Wes is very particular about the saddle blankets fitting properly. It must not slide back or pull down. A correctly fitted well designed saddle blanket should stay with the contour of your saddle with no movement. Horseland Mornington stock a brilliant showjumping saddle blanket which does just that. The Schokemohle branded one is amazing Team Joyce highly recommend you buy one. Here are some pictures showing how well it sat on Oaks Volta’s back.

Pink stirrup irons

Wes noticed these amazing stirrups in Horseland Mornington. He knows I have a soft spot for things pink. I was so touched to see him walk over with them in his hands. He said you have to put these on your Anky Dressage saddle. They are made of durable plastic. Not to light / or heavy. The grip instep is really good as well. I love them

Ariat tall riding boots

Nearly a century has passed and I have my first pair of Ariat tall black riding boots. I am so happy with how well they fit and feel. Did not taken long to wear in at all. The lovely helpful staff at Horseland Mornington advised me they would drop down over time. At first they felt to long – high behind the knee. But they were spot on it has taken 2 weeks and they have dropped perfectly. The leather is so manoeuvrable, the inner sole so comfy I highly recommend these beauties.

His & hers

Have you ever tried a Dublin riding helmet?. Why – because they fit properly making them extremely comfy and are so affordable. Which makes staying up to date with the right safety standards possible. Does your helmet comply with the Australian Standards updated Jan 2017. Thanks to Horseland all Team Joyce’s helmets conform.

Cotton is best

Why ? It is a natural product and because of the way it is designed and manufactured into horse rugs, it has many advantages, such as its ability to control moisture, insulate, provide comfort and it is also hypoallergenic.

Weatherbetta pure cotton works best

Weatherbetta pure cotton works best on clipped horses, will not create static or irritation. Team Joyce always use clean dry cotton rugs as the first layer when rugging our Lals Haven performance horses over winter. We highly recommend the Horseland range of pure cotton rugs.

They are available in Horseland stores.

Perfectly balanced stirrups with wide treads and very good grip ensure stable lower legs, improved balance and give a comfortable ride.
