Nicky Fletcher, MD, says: “I’m thrilled to be able to use my extensive experience to design and manufacture a high visibility collection that will be worn by Charlotte and it’s a complete privilege that she has chosen Equisafety to work with on this. She is very passionate about promoting the importance of wearing high visibility wear and I am looking forward to designing some pieces with her”.
Charlotte’s success in the sport of Dressage has been nothing short of phenomenal. Partnering with mount Valegro, she has become one of the most iconic names on the international stage, gaining title after title after title. Riding from an early age, she had considerable success in the showing world, before turning her hand to Dressage. Dujardin and Valegro were selected to represent Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympic Games and on 7 August 2012 the pair were members of the team which won the gold medal in the team dressage event. Two days later, in a routine, which included Land of Hope and Glory, The Great Escape and the chimes of Big Ben; the pair won the gold medal in the individual dressage event with a score of 90.089%.
The rest, as they say, was history….
Said Charlotte: “I am delighted to be working with Equisafety and Nicky, who I liked from the moment I met her. She is so passionate about what she does and with a Degree in Fashion and a Master’s Degree in Technical Performance Sportswear, she brings a whole host of design skills to her products. I cannot stress enough the importance of riders wearing hi-visibility garments when on the roads. I always encourage horses to hack, whatever their level, and want everyone to be safe when they do so. That said, even when we consider ourselves cautious, accidents do happen, so it is really important that high visibility products are worn so that riders can be seen as much as possible. I am really looking forward to working with Equisafety and the team and spreading this message as much as I can”
