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

Look smart in this form-fitting, short sleeve shirt, and feel even smarter knowing that it is protecting your skin from 98% of harmful UV rays. With a UPF rating of 50+, the SunShield Short Sleeve Shirt by SmartPak is lightweight and the Australian Versatex material offers the best sun protection available. The shirt’s athletic look and feel along with a 3/4 zip neckline make it a great asset to your riding wardrobe, whether at the barn or in the show ring.

    SunShield Short Sleeve Shirt by SmartPak is rated 4.6296 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice shirt I've been investing in sun shirts over the last year and needed to bulk up my short-sleeve collection (for long sleeve, the Kastel Denmark shirts are the best I have found.... Please carry these, SmartPak!!!) Anyway, I finally decided to try this one. I've been a fan of the Kerrits Ventilator and IceFill shirts for a while now, but wanted some different options and found this on sale. I wear a small (street size 4-6) and this fit true to size. I got the blue and later came back for the pink. They are nicely constructed and the fabric feels nice. The fabric is heavier than the Kerrits fabric, but since they are a little more form fitting and structures, they hang better than the Ventilators. I would buy again if there were more colors. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than sunscreen! I have 2 of the long sleeve shirts but wanted something for the very humid hot days that would keep most of me covered (chest and neck at least!). It is stylish and comfortable, well made, washes well. This will be great for the days that I am not outside full time - having some shade protection but at least I don't have to wear the sunscreen on my neck and chest. I love that it covers the back of my neck as well as the front. The zip-up is very comfortable. Next time they are on sale I will get more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the fit I have (2) different colors ... the fit is extremely flattering - and honestly can easily be worn for casual and play. Even the white with blue has garnered significant dirt and washed clean again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love Wish there were more color options. Will definitely be buying again. Fits great and stays feeling cool to the skin. Have used as a layering piece on cool mornings. The navy has a gorgeous slimming look

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt! I absolutely love this shirt! It is super comfortable, looks attractive, keeps your body cool in the heat and also dries really fast when it gets sweaty or wet. I have a very long torso too, and this shirt fits me lengthwise very well which is very hard to find! I love the zip up front, which would make this shirt wearable under a show coat too. I just wish that SmartPak would offer some other colors, preferably dark colors like black and navy. The white is very pretty, but I really can't wear white.... After wearing it for a day at the barn, it turns brown! I'm not a neat person. :)SmartPak, please offer some darker colors and I will buy them all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great fit without being clingy. The shirt is long enough to tuck in but also looks okay outside your breeches.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shirt! Bought the white/blue one and enjoyed it so much, that I ordered another color. Comfy and washes up nicely. Wait for a sale or discount so you don't have to pay full price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt! For someone who rides all day long in Florida this shirt is very worth it. Fabric is extremely pleasant, cool non clingy and the fit is still attractive. Runs true to size as well. Only negative wish there was more color options. Because I would wear a different color everyday.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice shirt! I love the look and feel of this shirt! The color is great. It's very warm though - could stand to be made of a more breathable fabric.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced Am I the only one who feels like once a product is marketed to the equestrians, its price doubles?This shirt is not worth $59. It's a simple light weight quarter zip polo. But your clothes already protect you from UV rays -- that's where those sunburn lines come from. So what's with the price tag?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from really nice shirt I love this shirt! Very comfortable even in hot humid weather. Unrestricted movement, flattering fit, tucks in and stays or wear out. I love the zipper so I can protect my fair skin when out in the sun and unzip for more air when working in the barn. Easy to wash and dries quickly hanging up. My horse is disappointed that he isn't allowed to rub his latest snack on the shirt. More colors would be nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Riding Shirt I love this shirt! I found the fabric to be very breathable and moisture-wicking, and the fit was true to size. I also really liked the collar, as it protects my neck from the sun when I flip my hair up into my helmet to ride. Only reason I didn't rate the durability is because I haven't had the shirt very long. I might have to get the pink too ;)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just so-so... The seaming and the fit were just not attractive. I wondered if the shirts in the pictures are even the same seaming as the one that I received. And for $59--didn't seem worth it. I returned it.
