Lotus Romeo named as Official Suppliers of Competition Jackets to
the British Equestrian Team
The brand will be the official supplier to the British Equestrian Team of tailcoats for dressage and eventing and riding jackets for para dressage. The contract was awarded just this week and the rush is on to measure and fit all the potential team members in dressage, eventing and para dressage before their first outings at the World Championships in Herning, Denmark and Pratoni, Italy this summer. Followed by the prestige of supplying the team jackets for the 2023 European Championships and on to the Paris Games in 2024.
The design is being kept under wraps, but the British patriotic colours of Red, White and Blue will be elegantly fused using their clever use of trims and linings.
Lotus Romeo has been chosen as they offer highly technical, soft, feather light fabrics that offer a full range of movement, breathability and comfort. Already the choice of many international riders, including Carl Hester, their jackets stand out for their unique and elegant designs, skilled tailoring and ability to keep riders cool in the saddle even in the hottest of countries.
British Equestrian Performance Director Helen Nicholls commented; “We’re very excited to be working with Lotus Romeo UK on the tailcoats and jackets for the next three championships. We look forward to sharing the new designs which will support the patriotic sense of pride in our athletes when representing Great Britain and further inspire crucial performances on the world stage.”
Claire Hubbard, Lotus Romeo UK commented; “We are delighted to have been chosen to supply the tailcoats and riding jackets for the British Equestrian Teams. We know that the jackets will enable the riders to produce their best possible performance as they offer unrivalled comfort, breathability and movement. Our custom fit service means that each rider will have their jacket made-to-measure giving them the confidence that not only will they be able to perform but will also look stylish and modern too!”
