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 been considered the finest riding shirt available for the hunter/jumper rider for over 30 years. Using the most luxurious fabrics, Essex show shirts are exquisitely tailored using over 24 stitches per inch for an elegant appearance. The show shirts have a slightly tapered European fit and feature single-needle tailoring to provide smooth seams, an eight button front to prevent gapping, and long shirt tails for a perfect tuck. 

The Essex Classics Knit Shortsleeve Performance Show Shirt is the newest performance CoolMax shirt for ladies! To keep you extra cool, the shirt body is fabricated from the extremely breathable CoolMax knit and designed with a collar that neatly snaps, giving the appearance of wearing a choker while under a jacket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! I LOVE mine- it has been through a lot and with every wash it looks new again- it's very flattering and the fabric is soft and comfy!! I have worn mine in dressage with a stock tie, hunters with a jacket, and just plain in jumpers! It has a great tailored look and the snap collar is a big plus! This shirt has no faults!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shirt! This shirt is very nice. The fabric is great, not too thin, not too thick. The length works and the collar is very classy. Unfortunately, I ordered this shirt to compare with the Equiline one, tried the Equiline one on first and nothing else stood a chance. This is still a very nice shirt, but I ended up keeping the Equiline one. Sizing-wise, I ordered a small and it fit well. I'm usually an XS, size 32 shirt, size 2/3 pant. Small was good though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt This is a great shirt - the quality is nice and the fit is excellent. I normally wear a small in shirts but ordered a medium so I could layer a tank top underneath. It doesn't seem too see-though but I like the extra layer. The long length is nice and the fit is very flattering. Great product

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight! This is a nice quality shirt, but runs tiny! I normally wear a 38 in Essex shirts and this thing is SKIN TIGHT! I think it is a bit pricey for a short sleeve knit shirt, but does seem to be a quality garment and the white fabric is substantial and not transparent. I am going to try the large which is supposed to fit up to 44.

    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...
