Best Horse Riding Chaps

Updated on November 9, 2010

Horse back riding or equestrianism (if you feel like using long words today) is a wonderful sport. You get to connect with your horse and become closer to nature. A wonderful stress reliever indeed.

However, rough and brushy terrain can cause leg injuries. Thus, protective gear should be worn at all times. One important accessory for equestrianism are Chaps. Chaps were made to provide protection to a rider’s legs without hindering movement.

They are also a perfect protective garment for amateur riders or for people who are new to horseback riding. It’s like a pair of trousers cut into half which is buckled on over the rider’s trousers. It is usually made of leather or leather like material which would not only provide protection to the rider but will give you a very fashionable cowboy or cowgirl appearance.

Below are the best and most stylish horse riding chaps found today. Different styles are available for men and women.

Ovation Elite Half Chap XSmall Light Brown/Brown

These wonderful Amara (a synthetic leather that is slightly softer than the traditional Cabretta finish) half chaps have a ribbed style that give a perfect fit which prevents rubbing, especially if you have wide calves.

Different colors are available which will match any jeans or trousers you wear. These are very fashionable and sturdy yet comfortable enough for everyday use. You'll never notice that you are wearing them all day.

Zippers are made with durable YKK zippers, they don’t easily fade or stain and are very easy to clean. These will also help to keep your legs warm during winter. These cost less than half of the traditional leather half chaps. A very practical buy.

Want to have a luxurious experience and performance level without spending a fortune? Then, try these Moxie Equestrian Air Puff Half Chaps. They are well-designed for extra protection during the ride and are extremely durable.

The elastic panel allows extra protection during the ride and the light weight makes them perhaps the most comfortable available. Perfect for women and girls, they are available in several colors, including hot pink.

A great summer half chap, and once again made from "Amara," rather than leather. If pink is your thing - buy the matching hot pink riding gloves.
