We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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 Performance Menlo Show Shirt is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt! I have only tried the shirt on so far, but straight out of the package you can tell this is a high quality shirt. The only slightly off thing I noticed was the wrist cuffs were just a tad bit small, but luckily still fit me. Hopefully this will last forever!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! I've only used this shirt once, but I absolutely loved it! It fits incredibly well and was very breathable when it got warm in the afternoon, but wasn't too thin in the morning when it was chillier!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shirt... This shirt "was" very nice, loved the floral trim, (inside collar and cuffs). The fit was great...but for me it was a bit "see through", even with a "nude" bra. I returned this for the "Essex Talent Yarn" in blue ...perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another amazing shirt! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this shirt! Essex Classics always has the best quality show shirts, no matter what! The white is really vibrant and the pattern on it is gorgeous! The floral wrap neck and cuffs are absolutely to die for! It's very soft and breathable, runs true to size, and looks way better than the normal white show shirts. The price is a bit much, but it's completely worth every penny! Essex Classics is the way to go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for!!! Gorgeous shirt. Wore this with my hunt seat coat and tan britches to my first USDF show. Got TONS of compliments on my attire. I was the only one in non traditional dressage attire! This shirt is close fitting but accurate in size, stays tucked in, is lovely fabric and looks awesome with jeans and river boots to head out for dinner after a show day!Can't think of a single negative. Highly recommend this shirt and will buy more when I need them.
