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'!).

Why We Love This

The Alexus Riding Top is perfect for the all show rings! Even a sharp shirt for schooling with full 50+ UPF and protection against 98% of harmful UV rays. This top features a stand up collar and double layered cuffs which offer a traditional look under your show coat with completely non-traditional, technical fabric that's almost too good to be true. A blend of 92% polyester and 8% spandex fabric moves with you and stretches over every big oxer or extended trot- perfect for every discipline! 

Favorite Features 

  • Hidden snap closures in collar and cuffs provide a polished look in or out of the show ring  
  • Longer length stays tucked into your riding pants
  • 50+ UPV rating (the highest rating available) protects your skin from 98% of harmful UV rays during those long days at the barn in the hot summer sun
  • Stylish side panels and placket with contrasting colors makes this shirt fun and stylish in the show ring or schooling ring

    Alexus Riding Top by SmartPak is rated 4.1304 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely shirt but too heavy! I ordered this because of the UPF rating--it's a great looking shirt for lessons, showing, etc. Unfortunately, it's much heavier than I was expecting and it's certainly too heavy for Florida. Probably very nice in cooler climates.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shirt! I immediately loved this shirt from the moment I tried it on. The material isn't too thin, like a lot of the other show shirts, and is not as see through. That being said, it isn't as cool as some of the other shirts either, but is perfect for spring riding in CA. The shirt does run big...I am usually a small (5'9"/130LBS) and this is a bit baggy. If you are between sizes, I would order a size down. I can't comment on the durability since I have not worn it riding yet, however, the material is nice and does not seem "cheap."

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really large sizing! Got such a good price on this that I thought I would go ahead and try it, despite reviews that said it ran large and was a heavy weight. It should work well for Winter riding under layers. Maybe for early Spring / Fall days...definitely not Summer. The sleeves are so long I double the cuffs over to fit. Might try to shrink it on purpose

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs big I typically wear a large, this fits more like an xl but it tucks in nicely. Sleeves are big at the wrists and an odd memory foam.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shirt Bought one for myself, and one for my trainer as a gift. We both love them! Looks really sharp, especially cuffs on shirts. Fits well. Very comfortable with breathable fabric and mesh under arms. Love the contrasting colors on the sides. Would definitely recommend, but a bit pricey.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Close but not quite right I bought this shirt to wear on cross country day. I like the fit and while I guess it's a little thick, it's not terribly so. What I can't get over is how dirty the thing is after being worn once, and washed at least 3 times. I mean, I put it on to tack up, then had it on to untack, and that was it! I can't get the dirt stains out of it, even after using spot remover. Why did I spend this much on a shirt that I now HAVE to wear under my XC vest?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shirt!! I needed a thick warm shirt since I was going to be doing a clinic in November and it was the perfect shirt!! The fabric is nice and thick so it will keep you warm with temperatures above 45 degrees, and is great to wear in the show ring too!! Also it was a bit nig so you can order a size down if you would like to.I ordered the eggplant on and got a lot of compliments about it...I can't wait for my next purchase!!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
