Success at competition means hours spent in the saddle schooling and conditioning your horse. Close-fitting half chaps made from soft leather or suede and worn over paddock or jodhpur boots are the comfortable and practical solution for daily wear. Elastic inserts ensure a snug fit at the ankle and permit flexibility when riding with short stirrups for galloping and jumping. Top-quality leather that doesn't wrinkle or sag protects the leg from chafing and encourages smooth communication with the horse. Budget priced suede half chaps are perfect for kids and adults in their daily lessons, while top-of-the-range half chaps incorporating elegant European design features are a must for professionals wanting both performance and flair from their riding apparel. Half chaps are easy to use, store and clean and allow riders to save their expensive dress boots just for competition days! Leather full chaps created specifically for English riders are a durable and weather-resistant solution for hard-working professionals. Bit of Britain offers chaps by Ovation, Dublin, Tredstep and Suedwind.
