Claire McDermott

Claire is an Eventer from Lilydale, Victoria. Her current horses are Klydoscope (Klyde), a warmblood gelding by Daley K who competes at 3* and Russia an Off the Track Thoroughbred by Moscow Ballet.
Long term goals are to take my horses to 5**** and hopefully compete overseas and represent Australia in the future.
Claire’s favourite product from Tacklet is the beautiful Premium Patent Leather Double Bridle.
“All of Tacklet’s leather is of such fantastic quality and this bridle, along with the others in the range, fit my horses perfectly and compliments their faces. I also love the matching sets which come in a variety of colours to suit all my horses! It is so nice to find good quality sets at such reasonable prices! I am thrilled to be able to have my horses look so fancy wearing their Tacklet products.”

Durani Hart

Durani competes across the board in all HRCAV disciplines but has a love of horse trials!
Her current horse is Vanaheim Ice and Fire. Rising 7yo home bred ISH gelding. Currently competing level 1 & 2 HRCAV. Aim to continue being successful allrounders with wins in all the disciplines. I love too many products. The rubber bell boots for jumping because despite being barefoot my horse overreaches and nicks himself, but I like a boot that will come off if it gets caught on a solid fence. The matching bonnets for keeping the wind out of my horse’s ears in style. My yellow stirrup irons for jumping, lightweight and comfortable. I love all the show stuff, and need more of it! My headband ear warmer is fantastic for the colder days.

Josephine Drummond

I am a 25 year old, from the Blue Mountains in NSW and I currently own two OTT geldings, Seven Million (Bob) and Dougal O’Reilly (Dougal). I have been eventing now for just over 3 years and my long-term goals are to continue to develop my skills and knowledge to become the best rider I possibly can be, and one day I would love to compete at the Melbourne International 3 days event. The Tacklet products are all of such high-quality and I love the diverse range of matching coloured gear that is available! I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to have been given the opportunity to be a part of the Tacklet team.

Amelia Fitzgerald

I am a 25 year old Primary Teacher in Gympie QLD. Horses have always been the light of my eye however I was relatively late to start riding. I went from sterling starter with my first horse to State titles at 2* level (in 5 years) before the diagnosis of ringbone lead to his early retirement.
My current team rotates with:
Finch Farm Mojo – WB gelding, reading to step up to 2* after wins at 1* since coming back from serious injury.
Moonlight Grandess – competitive 3* TB mare
Off the tracker Moonlight Ramira – competitive young home bred mare competing 1*
Moonlight Fortune – is the home bred baby of the group at only 4yrs old, for only 2 outings so far for top 10 placing both times.
I’m looking forward to the teams first full season in QLD after moving from Canberra.

Georgia Rodgers

My name is Georgia Rodgers and I am a 17 year old showjumper (part time eventer) from Canberra, Aus! I have 4 horses – Amazing Grace (Gracie), Señor Dash (Ash), Joy and my main competition horse, ESB Golden Knot (Knot) and Sharellen Generation who mainly competes in eventing. I have competed up to 1.15m on my previous horse Gracie, and I am currently competing at 1.10m with Knot as he is new to me. Knot and I have big plans for 2019 and we are hoping to fly up the heights and be competing in much bigger classes soon! My life goals are to represent Australia in the Olympics and competed internationally in the field of showjumping. I love how creative and bright Tacklet’s products are, however there’s still that variety to be more conservative and go with more neutral colours which are all equally gorgeous! I am so thrilled to be part of the Tacklet team and I can’t wait for a bright 2019 with an amazing company supporting me!
