Chaps & Half Chaps
Both English and Western riders looking for extra leg protection and grip look first to a timeless pair of chaps. Full chaps offer riders of all disciplines extra protection from rain, snow, and dangerous barbs, as well as extra grip in the saddle. Working ranch horsemen and Western show riders alike can be seen wearing leather or suede chaps on the trail or in the ring. The Cheshire Horse carries Hobby Horse Simplicity Chaps for timeless, all-purpose suede full chaps with stylish fringe.
Riders who choose to wear short boots or riding shoes often opt to wear half chaps over their breeches or jeans to prevent calf chafing or bruising from stirrup leathers. Half chaps are a good alternative to full chaps when you're looking to be lighter in the saddle or to keep your legs cooler. A good pair of leather, suede, or synthetic half chaps can also offer a rider more grip with their lower leg.
The Cheshire Horse offers a wide selection of adult and kids' half chaps, with an attractive option for all budgets. Looking for an everyday pair of half chaps for regular use? Check out the Dublin Easy-Care Half Chaps in adult or kids sizes. These synthetic suede chaps are durable and machine washable for ultimate convenience. We also carry high quality leather and suede options from brands like Ariat, Tredstep, and Dublin. Some styles mimic the look of tall boots when worn with paddock boots in a matching color. For the perfect snug fit, shop the Ovation Equistretch and Tredstep Elastic Suede series, both specially designed with stretchy suede and synthetic fabric to mold to your unique calf shape. For winter riding, the Smith-Worthington Fleece Lined Half Chaps offer extra warmth with a Sherpa fleece lining.
Shop The Cheshire Horse for your next favorite pair of chaps. We would love to help you pair them with the perfect new boots too!
