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'!).

R.J. Classics takes pride in offering you the choices to fill your personal look of refined elegance in the show ring. RJ Classics is devoted to the attention to detail and the innovation needed which sets RJ Classics apart.

The RJ Classics Essential Collection Ladies Shadbelly is perfect for the hunter ring. Exceptional quality and tailoring at an affordable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Nice Coat The material is really nice and it looks great!! I do not have large shoulders so I didnt need to go up a size. I actually ordered the six because it says to order up a size and I had to exchange it for a 4. It is very comfortable but feels like the sleeves could be a bit longer. There is room to have them lengthened though!! Can't wait to show in it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best deal in shadbellies In a field of overpriced shadbellies, this coat is well worth its price and just as good as the ones that cost double to triple the price. The material is elegant and the workmanship is excellent. The only warning is the sizing; we had to go down 2 sizes from all other shadbellies my daughter tried on. But the staff at SmartPak were extremely helpful when the first one we ordered (2 sizes larger) clearly was too large, in helping me figure out we needed to go down 2 sizes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warning: Runs very large Excellent shadbelly for the price, but we had to go down 2 sizes to get the right size (14 to a 10). Tails are a bit longer than other brands, but not an issue with shadbellies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected I was really pleased with this product. The material, the shadbelly design, and the overall look of the product was far above my expectation. I am so pleased with my purchase. For the money, it can't be beat.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Tight Fit I was surprised by the quality of this coat given the price. However, I found the sizing to be very off. I am usually an 8 and the 8 was really, really small. I ordered the 10, and even that one is quite tight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a bit large I usually wear a size 2 in RJ Classics, my favorite brand of riding attire, so I ordered the shadbelly in a 2. It was much to big on me, I felt I was swimming in it. I exchanged it for a 0 and it is a much better fit. Great quality, excellently tailored, and classic look. Not many bells and whistles since its the "essential collection." I suppose traditionalists would say that its really about showcasing the horse right?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful garment I purchased this garment to use as part of a costume in a theatrical production. It was beautifully made, and helped to create a most elegant appearance for our actress.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect elegance I was quite surprised on the quality of this shadbelly for the price! It is not to often that my daughter needs the shadbelly so we did not want to spend a huge amount of money. I usually buy the expensive item, and let me tell you could not tell the difference in the hunter ring!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Used to own a $500 Grand Prix shadbelly but I grew out of it last year and didn't want to invest in something as expensive. This coat has almost all of the quality of the $500 coat - it fits PERFECTLY based on the measurements, and looks just as beautiful on. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for? This is my first shadbelly. I wanted something not to expensive since I would only wear the shad once per show. The coat has nice detail and the sizing was right on. However, I was a little surprised at how lightweight the fabric was compared to my other show jackets. I'm not sure how well it will hold up or how badly it will wrinkle. But I guess if you have to wear black wool in the summer you want it to be lightweight. But for $200 it is still quite nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! I am thoroughly impressed with the value and quality of this shadbelly. The fabric, fit and details far exceeded my expectations for a coat at this price. Can't wait to wear it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Great quality without spending a fortune! I looked just as good as the other riders who spent 3 times as much as I did!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Can't Beat It I occasionally play in classes that require formal attire. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a shad because occasionally means like once or twice a year. I saw this shad in the new SmartPak catalog and just couldn't resist. I was absolutely amazed when the coat arrived. It is gorgeous with really fantastic detailing. I look just as fancy as everyone who spent two or three times what I did. I'm thrilled with SmartPak for continuing to find such great products as great prices!
