We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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'!).

The Ariat® Close Contact Half Chap is made from oiled and waxed full grain leather with reinforced inside panel. The Ariat® Close Contact Half Chaps feature dual stretch leather panels on each side of back zipper. Spanish cut top line. The Ariat® Close Contact Half Chap has a stretch leather insert of instep for improved fit. Oiled Black. 

Features premium full-grain waxed leather and an elasticized stretch panel for custom fit!

    Ariat® Close Contact Half Chap is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loyal Ariat Customer until these Half Chaps The stitching on these half chaps rotted out after less than one year. I have always been careful not to wear them through mud, hosing off horse or mucking stall. I have cleaned them regularly. Unlike my experience with Ariat Paddock Boots, I have been very disappointed in the durability for the price of these half chaps. Moreover, Ariat Customer Service has failed to offer any solution to this issue, though I have contacted them several times over the last 6 months.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice half chap but runs very narrow. My child has super skinny calves and this half chap fit her calf but was too narrow to zip around her boot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Quality I had to return because they were way too tall. I ordered med which I need to go around jeans and I am 5'6" so they should have fit?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these - too bad they are discontinued Fit great, look great - love them. Too bad they are discontinued.I was concerned they were too tight but a quick call to customer service convinced me to keep them and I was told they would give a bit. They fit perfect for my skinny legs. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my second pair! I love how these look and fit. I've been wearing my current pair for a few years now and they are just beginning to look worn where the leather meets the saddle. One snap broke but I was able to get that repair at a local shoe repair shop. Expensive but worth every penny.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent everyday half chap These are great for everyday use and quite durable. They would look better if they came up higher on the outside of the knee

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The quality of the leather on these chaps is great. They look elegant and the stretch panel in the back works well. The only thing is the zipper begins at the bottom by the ankle and pulls up. They are difficult to put on for an adult, unless you are very flexible.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! I have just about given up on Ariat as their quality control has gone south!  These chaps are replacing the Ariat Monaccos I bought and only lasted for 5 rides : (   Hopefully these will hold up...time will tell.  The fit was good!  My review is based on 12 rides so we'll see...

    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...
