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

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

Favorite Features

  • A snap collar that gives the illusion of wearing a choker
  • Contrasting trim on the neckband, button front, and cuffs adds a fashionable touch
  • Made with CoolMax fabric

    Essex Classics Performance Wrap Collar Show Shirt is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great show shirt! We love these show shirts! My daughter has several now from over the last few years. The wrap collars are the best because first of all you never have to go searching for your collar and also because they can go into the Hunter (closed collar) and/or the Jumper (open collar) ring very easily and look great. The shirts wash well and stay looking nice for many years of competitions. The only negative is that they keep coming out with new and even prettier patterns and she wants them all!!

    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.

    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...
