Holland Cooper has been the proud Sponsor of Laura Collett, the young British event rider, since 2008. Over the past four years we have developed an excellent relationship with Laura and have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of her eventing career.
For each new event, we provide Laura with a custom made trot up outfit with impeccable attention to detail. Tweed Jackets and skirts are designed so the tweed and trims compliment the colour of the horse she is riding. Laura has won best trot up outfit for the last three years at Burghley and Badminton with Holland Cooper’s classic and elegant British tweed attire.
Traditionally, the trot up before a competition was a practical exercise for vets to check if the horse was healthy to compete. This is still of paramount importance, however, the need for the rider to look smart and fashionable has increased and ‘best trot up outfit’ has become a competitive title to win. Laura has most recently been spotted wearing the sophisticated Tweed Prince of Wales Jacket in Conker whilst parading at Cheltenham Festival with her new horse Kauto Star. This jacket also won Laura best ‘trot up’ outfit at the Burghley Horse Trials 2010.
