The Centre Line, exclusive UK distributors of the prestigious Lotus Romeo riding jackets have had the pleasure of styling Team GBR dressage rider, Carl Hester MBE with a set of bespoke tailcoats and short jackets to compete in this year.

Carl has sported various bespoke pieces from this inimitable brand dating back to 2014 when he opened the show for The Spanish Riding School of Vienna in Sheffield in a showstopping Lotus Romeo tailcoat complete with rhinestones.


Since then, he has been a fan of their technical fabrics and particularly favours how elegant the styling is, the use of trims and linings and moreover how breathable and comfortable their jackets are. Giving him ultimate freedom of movement whilst riding is key and being able to have a bespoke jacket that fits perfectly and allows for choice of special trims, linings, shapes and buttons.

His new vivid blue tailcoat debut was at the Keysoe International in March and in winning form he and his horse En Vogue took top position. Lotus Romeo is now Carl Hester’s own personal choice of competition jacket to compete in.

Premium equestrian brand, Lotus Romeo was created for riders who choose to ride in elegance and style, without compromising on comfort.  Their products stand out for their unique and elegant designs, and because they use only the highest quality materials and skilled tailors in the entire process.  Their attention to detail is second to none, crafting jackets from breathable, soft, feather light technical fabrics with mesh linings and Swarovski crystal buttons.

 So now everyone can get the winning look like Carl, by choosing Lotus Romeo. To see more ideas on how to tailor one of these fabulous jackets or make design changes, visit
