As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Essex Classics has once again started a new trend in riding apparel fashion. This shirt is designed with a collar that neatly snaps, giving the appearance of wearing a choker. It allows riders to go easily from the jumper ring to the hunter ring without the necessary step of putting on a choker or wondering where the choker has run off to! Contrasting trim inside the neckband, button front, and cuffs adds a fashionable touch.

Essex Classics has been considered the finest riding shirt available for the English hunter/jumper rider for over 20 years. Using the most luxurious European designed fabrics, the Essex Professional show shirt is exquisitely tailored using over 24 stitches per inch to provide smooth seams. 

Made with CoolMax fabric which wicks moisture from the skin and keeps the rider cool during competitions.

The latest fashion from Essex Classics to spread throughout the show circuit is the contrasting trim look. Riding shirts which have a normal appearance when “buttoned up” suddenly look relaxed and trendy without the choker, the collar left open, and the cuffs rolled up. The contrasting trim gives the shirts a special appeal since they can double as a show shirt and a casual shirt.

    Essex Classics Performance Wrap Collar Show Shirt is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable AND Cool Shirt This is by far one of the most comfortable show shirts I've tried!!! It keeps you extremely cool while riding, which is a big plus. I also love the wrap collar and contrasting trim! It may fit a bit on the big side, but not really enough to matter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this shirt! Such a great shirt! modern amenities such as the wrap collar(you will never lose your collar..i can't even count how many collars i have lost!) but has a classic look to it. If you go to any of the big A or AA shows you will se most of the riders wearing these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shirt Aside from the fact that I think most show shirts are priced on the high side, this shirt looks and feels great. I'd love to see snaps on the cuffs too, but until then, this will still be my show shirt of choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shirt I wore this shirt for the first time at a show last week, and got lots of compliments. It felt fantastic in the summer heat, and it is a very flattering cut. I feel it is really slimming, and the comfort can't be beat. The wrap collar is really popular right now, and I understand why--it's so easy and great looking. If you're considering this as a purchase, go for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! I love this shirt! It fits great and the coolmax fabric is cool and comfortable! The snap collar is convenient and easy without having to worry about misplacing it. Very easy to machine wash and hang to dry. I will buy more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! Nice show shirt, lightweight comfortable fabric, washes up beautiful! Love the wrap collar easy to open up when you want to cool down and breathe and no more lost collars after the show!!The pretty prints inside the collar and cuffs make it fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from useful I wear this shirt at work as well as shows as the coolmax is good for hot flashes! I have gotten many compliments. I wish the white material was less sheer so you don't see through but otherwise, a great purchase. some of the essex white shirts have a pattern which might make them less easy to see through but it was hard to tell that on the picture.
