Best Horse Riding Chaps
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.
