Talent, attention to detail and top performance have made Carl Hester one of the world's greatest riders, so unsurprisingly, these same qualities have been reflected in a new range of clothing that carries his name. A year in development, the Carl Hester Collection has his full approval and is now available in selected stockists!

“I wanted quality, practicality and reflective properties combined in a collection that every horse rider and dog walker would want to wear and I am very proud of the results”, said Carl. “Top marks to designer Nicky Fletcher, who has worked tirelessly and patiently to fulfil my demands!”

“As a Technical Sportswear Designer, working with Carl has been an absolute pleasure”, Nicky explained.  “He had such a clear vision of the individual style he wanted and I was thrilled by his attention to detail and total involvement in the development of the collection. This prestigious capsule collection focuses on using high quality technical materials, an essential requirement for comfort and protection for all outdoor pursuits”, Nicky explained. “No time to relax though as Carl has more ideas for me to work on. I now know why he is such a brilliant trainer!”

What the tester, Equine Extra Editor Pam Harrison says ...
Who wouldn’t want to wear one of these fabulous Azar Quilted Gilets from the Carl Hester Collection? The packaging shouts ‘quality’ before you even open it and the garment definitely does not disappoint! The feel is luxurious, the quality of the materials used is obvious and the attention to detail that has gone into the manufacture has resulted in an incredibly lightweight yet amazingly warm gilet that is also very smart.
Reading the label confirms the quality, with technical explanations that cannot fail to impress and also detailed washing instructions to ensure this gilet will keep its looks and performance for many wash cycles. I've had mine for a year now and I love it, both in the saddle and away from the yard.

It’s lovely to wear, attractive yet practical and I’m definitely coveting the other garments in the Carl Hester Collection.
