Savvy Shopping Guide for Kids Riding Chaps
Children's riding chaps give much-needed protection for the younger rider's legs from dirt, horse sweat, and rubs, as well as providing a bit more grip in the saddle. Half chaps fit from knee to ankle, simulating the style of taller riding boots, and should be worn with short paddock boots, while full chaps cover the entire leg. Full chaps are a perfect option for riders who want to ride in jeans, while half chaps are very popular for schooling and lessons. Half chaps are also a great option for providing some extra warmth during the colder Winter months.

Horse Riding Chaps for Kids Fitting & Sizing Information
A large variety of sizes are available. Measure half chaps by measuring from the top of the ankle bone (inside the leg) to the top of the calf. Then measure the calf's widest part. For full chaps, measure the inside leg's length just below ankle. Then measure the thigh. Please refer to your items sizing chart for more information.
Horse Riding Chaps for Kids Care Instructions
Look at the care instructions on your garment before washing. Many of our childrens riding chaps are hand washable. Simply hose off with water or soap and wipe down without drying out the leather. Most leather garments should not be cleaned in a washing machine. Suede garments can be brushed down with a hard brush and then soaked. Above all else, remember to stay away from bleach of any kind!
