Shopping for pre-teen girl, shirt recommendations?
I am doing some birthday shopping for a pre-teen horse girl who just started showing this year. She needs a few show shirts, what do you experienced moms and teen riders recommend? Which colors, long sleeve versus short sleeve, monogram styles, brands? Any recommendations is GREATLY appreciated!
Oh - she has a black show coat and rides different ponies/horses. She lives in a cooler area.
Absolutely long sleeved. I would get her one plain classic white one that she can use for eq-type classes - make sure it's thick enough not to be see-through - and one or two ones in a cute colored pattern. You can monogram the chokers however - people have been pretty creative with them in the last few years, just don't go too over the top.
Definitely long sleeved! I don't think anyone is really doing the monogrammed collars anymore but the kids really like the shirts with the snap collar. At least one white and maybe a color for the hunters.
Long sleeved definitely! I just got one of the new snap collars and LOVE it! Lots of compliments when I have worn it. We are still doing monograms (I wouldn't do a pin). I also agree with at least one white shirt (great all around shirt) and maybe another in a light color (light pink, light blue, light purple). Here is the RJ Classics shirt with the snap collar:
Personally, I'm terminally lazy about monograms. I think they're cute, but it's never been the sort of thing that's actually mattered to me. Thus, any shirt I buy new winds up with no monogram, any shirt I bought used usually has one that belongs to someone else. I'd skip the pins.
