Find the Perfect Show Shirt for Your Young Rider
The "rules" for young rider show shirts, are basically identical to those for adults. the only difference being that young riders are given a bit more latitude in terms of colors. And the youngest lead line riders will frequently match their shirts to their hair bows.
Hunter/Jumper riders will need a "Ratcatcher" Show Shirt. These traditional shirts look more or less like a man's dress shirt. However, they have banded, rather than pointed, collars. For showing, the collar is worn closed about the neck, while most riders loosen and unbutton it between classes. Increasingly, these shirts are offered with colorful patterns on the insides of the collars, so that they appear "buttoned up" and formal in class, but fun and casual outside of class. These shirts traditionally come with chokers that circle the neck. More recently, "wrap collars" have become very popular, eliminating the need for a separate choker. At the throat, most Hunter riders will either have a monogram, or pin a Stock Pin.
By the time young rider tackle the technical sport of dressage, they are generally a bit older, and wear clothing identical to adults - usually a Technical Show Shirt and Stock Tie. Because stock ties are generally white or cream, and cover up the shirt, Dressage riders have somewhat greater freedom in the color and style of the shirt itself. Frequently, Dressage Show Shirts are made of stretch, technical fabrics, with short sleeves and bright colors, with a stock tie loop at the back of the neck to hold the stock tie in place.
Because they compete in multiple disciplines, Event Riders may well need multiple Shirts. Many lower level event riders compromise by using a white tab collared dressage style shirt that can pass as a ratcatcher for their jumping rounds.
Show shirts come in a wide variety of fabrics and price ranges. For less than $30 you can get a perfectly acceptable shirt the hunter arena. Or, if you are headed to the big shows, a micro fiber shirt with a wrap collar and detailed tailoring can be as much as $100.
