The BSJA and FFE (French Equestrian Federation) approved modern competition jacket boasts a sleek sporty look and is now available in hot pillar box red.

Having worked with hi-tech military fabrics and a top French fashion house, the designer has ensured that the fencing-inspired Opox Jacket is both stylish and practical.

Washable, waterproof and breathable, it features a Teflon HT-treated outer layer, stretch four per cent Lycra, articulated elbow detail, retro tape, shaped seams and a Ri Ri zip – the most expensive zip money can buy.

Also available in navy and light grey, the jacket can easily be personalised with a sponsor’s logo, rider’s name or country.

It comes in sizes 36-44in (ladies’) or 46-54in (men’s) and costs £199.99.
