We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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

Don't let 'em see you sweat!  When you're feeling the heat in the ring, the Ariat Aptos Show Top will help keep you cool thanks to Ariat's exclusive Moisture Movement Technology.  Ariat's Moisture Movement Technology pulls moisture away from the skin and transports it to the fabric's outer face for quick evaporation.  Wicking properties combine with an evaporative layer for effective moisture movement keeping you comfortable all day at horse shows.

    Ariat® Aptos Show Top is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fit I am happy with this purchase so far although I haven't ridden in it yet. It fits great although it is definitely transparent, will have to wear a tank top or something underneath but I probably would've done that anyways. I really like it for the price and is very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It's very soft and comfy! The best part is how airy it feels. The collar is still very structured and looks great under your coat but doesn't make you miserably hot. I just wish it came in other colors so that I could buy one in every color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light & comfortable Just picked this shirt up this weekend at a show and wore it right off the bat - nice and light and stretchy. Is a bit see-through as you'd expect. I love that I can just put my stock pin on the collar and go! The downside to that, however, is that folding the collar down when coats are waived reveals all the snaps on the inside, but I don't figure I'll be using it that way very often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfy! This top is so airy and comfy! I am so excited to use it! It's very flattering, too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice show top for the price Really nice fit, slightly thin fabric, but should be wonderful in the summer. Snap collar is a little funny looking unsnapped, so I'm not sure I'd use it for a 1 day event. Otherwise lovely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute fitted show top The top is nicely fitted without being too tight. I like the fact that I won't have to keep track of a separate choker for the blouse. This will be nice and lightweight when showing this summer. It isn't too see through for being a white shirt. I'll most likely have a jacket or vest over it anyway.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfy and cool shirt! I have only used this shirt once at a show but it was a warm day and it kept me very cool! I cannot comment on durability yet however. But the shirt fits great and is very comfortable! I left it on even after my classes were done and it feels like a normal shirt! It is a little see through but with a white tank top or sports bra its not a big deal. Good product for the price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Really Like This Shirt I think this shirt is a great combination of practical and stylish. The fit is very comfortable and flattering with the princess seams. I was extremely pleased with how cool it was under my jacket and how quickly it dried out when I took my jacket off. The collar cleaned up beautifully at the end of the day and I will certainly buy at least one more of these so that I can change shirts on long show days. I wish it came in some soft colors that would look appropriate under a navy, grey or black jacket. I'd probably buy every color! I might also wish that the collar was detachable so it could be changed out if necessary or desired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Hot Weather I wear this for cross country schooling and schooling shows! I love it. It is see through but I'm not really bothered by it as I have my riding vest on! You can't beat the thiness of it for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Cool & Great Fitting Shirt Love this shirt for shows! It is cut very well, cool, and comfortable. I didn't find it any more transparent than other white show shirts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice fit, but thin fabric This shirt is sized and cut well, but the fabric is quite transparent. I think if you worked up a good sweat you might look like a contestant in a wet t-shirt contest!
