About Us

Flying Changes has grown significantly over the last few years as more and more riders have taken a keen interest in bespoke design, customisation and fine tailoring. Effective from 1st December 2012, British Dressage revised Rule number 46 with regard to Coats / Jackets, which now states:

‘Tail coats and short jackets may be any plain conservative, dark colour, for example navy, bottle green or charcoal grey etc… and may not be multi-coloured or boldly striped. Subtle pinstripes are permitted as are coloured collars and contrast piping to collar, lapels, pockets and vents. Unless entitled to wear them coloured collars registered with the FEI for national teams may not be used.’

Flying Changes have engaged in detailed discussion with British Dressage to establish the exact meaning and enforcement of this new rule change and we only use fabrics that are FEI legal.

  • On behalf of the Qatar Eventing Team, I would like to say a big thank you for the Teams tailcoats for the Asian Games! The Team love them!

One of our directors is herself an International Dressage Rider and Trainer and we intimately understand the fine balance that needs to be struck between style, the perfect fit, and the necessary freedom of movement required by riders. We can also advise on the various properties of our extensive range of fabrics.

We provide a bespoke service for the growing trend of riders wishing to stand out from the crowd and make a statement with their choice of jacket or tailcoat. We also provide riders who are looking for that more subtle change simply in style, trim or modern, washable, stain resistant fabrics.

Flying Changes have chosen one of the finest equestrian tailors in Europe to manufacture their jackets and customer satisfaction is our prime objective and therefore quality control is of the utmost importance. All our fabrics are produced in this country and are sourced from the top quality mills in Scotland and Yorkshire. Most of our fabrics are now exclusive to us. All the garments are individually hand cut and each machinist is responsible for a specialist operation. The jackets are finally hand pressed and the buttons sewn on by hand.

Our aim, in partnership with our tailor, is to produce exclusive, stylish and affordable jackets. Not only conforming to the correct dress code for each discipline but also to accommodate the growing demands of our modern riders. We have a range of styles both modern and traditional to flatter and enhance all shapes and sizes and we are available to advise on the many different forms of customisation.

Price range from £420.00 – £450.00 for a jacket and £540.00 – £654.00 for a tailcoat. We take a deposit with the order and the remaining balance is payable when the garment is finished. We can also offer an exclusive matching Charles Owen hat!
