Versatile Half Chaps For All-Day Comfort

Half chaps prevent rubbing while being an affordable alternative to tall boots. Half chaps are easily fit and made from various materials, including suede, leather, and other synthetic materials. Wear half chaps with your favorite paddock boots to get the look and length of a tall boot when training and doing chores. Like tall boots, they help keep breeches in place, provide a good grip in the saddle, and protect legs from scrapes. They are generally easier to fit than a tall boot and require very little break-in time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Half Chaps

What is the purpose of half chaps?

The purpose of half chaps is to prevent rubbing on a rider’s lower leg. Half chaps are used for everyday training and exercising. Worn in combination with paddock boots, they provide all the advantages of a tall boot but at a fraction of the cost.

How to measure for half chaps?

Measure yourself for half chaps to ensure the best fit. Half chaps should feel snug at first but will stretch with several wearings and eventually mold to your leg's contour. Like tall riding boots, they should reach to the back of your knee but will drop slightly with wear.

  • Put on the breeches you plan to wear with your half chaps and find a partner to help you with your measurements. Have a flexible tape measure handy.
  • Sit in a straight chair with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle.
  • Have your partner measure your calf at its widest point.
  • Next, have them measure your lower leg from the floor to the back of your knee.
  • Compare your measurements to the size chart for the brand you are interested in and select your size.
