We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Ariat upgraded the Classic III Half Chaps to a softer full-grain leather, plus a more breathable moisture-wicking lining. Also improved are the inner panel design and stretch system over the instep, resulting in an elegantly refined half chap.

    Ariat® Classic III Half Chap is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fit best I bought this product for the working student at my barn ... honestly after ordering and returning a few items, this was the one that fit her the best. Personally I am not a fan of the more "sueded" inner calf product (because it can cause a little extra wear/tear on a saddle), but the product is well made and does it's function quite well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Expected This is my first pair of half chaps. Very happy with the purchase. High quality materials, very solid zipper, intelligent design. Ridden winter riding only thus far indoors, but so far so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought these used over a year ago and they were really well used when I bought them. They are in great shape and I have not had any issues at all. The fit is great, comfy no matter what the season. I don't see these falling apart any time soon even after years of use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too big, but quality product I ordered an XS as my calf is 13.5 and the height is 15.5, but these chaps were too tall. Very disapointing, as Ariat does not make them shorter. (children's sizes were too small) Very nice quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the fit, the lining and the fact that the zipper starts at the top and is easy to maneuver. I think they are attractive and have been comfortable. I just got them within the last month so can't really speak to durability yet. Ariat seems to have declined in quality in the last few years. So far though I really like these. I ordered a small/medium height and the fit is really good. (I am 5'7' and 130)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for long skinny legs I bought these half chaps around a month ago in an XST size and I am very pleased with my purchase. I really like the look of the smooth leather and that there were no snaps that would just break on me! When you first get them the leather feels a little bit stiff so I was apprehensive to ride in them, but they were so comfortable. One thing about them is I find that they run a teensy bit large, so I would size down if possible (I couldn't because I needed the tall height, which the XXS didn't give) but if you can't size down it really isn't that big of an issue, especially since these are just schooling chaps. Another feature I really like about these was that the back of the half chaps has an almost cut-out like feature which makes getting spurs on so much easier, as I have to do this a lot since I ride multiple horses with different needs. I also really like the high Spanish top line as it helps add height to the half chaps for my long legs. The zip was a little stiff and hard when I first tried them on but as soon as I zipped them up and down a couple times it was fine (the zips on my old Ariats lasted forever so I have high expectations). Also I loved the super heavy duty strap that goes under your boots as it seemed like it was of a very high quality. I bought these half chaps to replace my old Ariat Oxford chaps which became too short and one of the snaps broke on me, plus they were a pain to button and unbutton. The only think that I'm not a huge fan of on these half chaps is the inside suede panel seems a little larger than the one on my old half chaps, which isn't a problem when riding but it doesn't look as put together when you are off of the horse. Overall I think that these are a great pair of half chaps and they seem to fit my long skinny legs quite well!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Chaps I haven't owned these long at all, but I love the fit! I don't love the flap that covers the zipper on the outside and I really wish it had a more streamlined look, but it doesn't affect their function at all. The biggest issue I've had with them is that I was riding a very sweaty muddy horse, and the suede got filthy. I've tried everything including suede cleaner, and nothing has gotten it off. They are still usable, but the suede it stiff and not as grippy now.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
