The first Toggi Equestrian Team GBR supporters collection was launched in 2006 and since then Toggi Equestrian Team GBR clothing is worn by British team members who represent our nation so successfully at equestrian events around the globe.
Sarah-Jane Fedarb, Managing Director for Toggi comments “about 10 years ago, Will Connell – World Class Performance Director of the BEF – came to us with his mission to present a stronger team identity across all equine sports that competed at championships around the world. Will’s vision was to develop a uniform look to make everyone feel involved and part of the team, from owners, vets and team staff as well as riders and grooms.
We saw this as a great opportunity for Toggi to get involved – we already sponsored several of the top British riders and the thought of playing a wider role in the success of British equestrian sports was an exciting prospect. The idea then evolved to create a supporter range to complement the team kit to allow the Nation to get involved and to show their support for our equestrian teams, which resulted in the official Toggi Team GBR collection. The look is obviously key, with a very British red, white and blue theme the focus of the range, which has become extremely popular. As a percentage of sales goes back to the British Equestrian Federation to help generate additional funds for all equestrian disciplines, people are delighted to show their support and to do their little part to help Great Britain remain a world beater in equestrian sports.”
Comment from British eventing European medallist, Piggy French
“When you can see the stands full of supporters wearing Team GBR clothing it makes you sit up taller and reminds you that you are there to win, not just for yourself but for everyone that takes pride in the success of the Team”
The Team GBR supporters collection includes stylish Toggi jackets, gilets, hoodies, rugby shirts, polo shirts, socks and baseball caps, which all feature the prestigious Team GBR logo which has been specially designed for the team and is available from leading Toggi retailers nationwide.
