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 Contour Half Chap is built with thoughtful design, durable construction, and top-quality zippers. These half chaps are made from premium full-grain waxed leather with a hung leather lining and oiled leather inner calf panel. They have a full length elasticized panel on the lateral side for comfort and freedom of movement.

    Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!! I bought these a month ago and I love them so far!! I ride about 4 times a week and they have been great! I noticed from the first ride that I had a better grip, they also look great and clean easily! Can't wait to have these for a while. I got the LS size which fit my 16.5 inch calf, even though they say they are 17.5 inches tall they fit my 17" tall calf perfect. They are also really easy to get on/off after just a few try's!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful half chap I bought these half chaps as a gift for my mother for Christmas. They appear to be great quality and fit her perfectly. I cannot comment on the durability yet.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice half chap, but runs small I like the look of these, and I really like that they have a separate tab that keeps the zipper from unzipping. However, they are much smaller in the calf than the size chart says. I ordered a large which is supposed to have a 15.5 to 16.5 calf but they only measured 15". I tried the extra large and they didn't seem any bigger.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't fit large calves I love Ariat half chaps but this pair didn't fit my large calves, so I sent them back. Please, Ariat, expand your sizing for those of us with wide calves! The leather was nice, but they didn't fit at all (couldn't zip them up) so I sent them back. The only half chaps I have found I can wear are Ariat's All Around III style, but they only come in suede, not smooth leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these chaps! I decided to get these chaps after a long and unsuccessful search for field boots that fit. I'm very pleased that they look a lot like field boots when I wear them with my Ariat paddock boots! I ended up with the slim medium and they were a bit too tall the first time I put them on but I have been riding with them unzipped a few inches and they have dropped slightly already - although definitely not as much as field boots would, so if you are looking at chaps keep that in mind! My only complaints are that the mesh/cloth part of the chap catches a lot of dust, but it comes off pretty well when I clean that part with a wet cloth. Also the zipper seems to catch pretty often and I know Ariat zippers are notorious for breaking, so I am careful with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size options I ordered these because my legs are very hard to fit - very tall with slim calf. Other half chaps I have tried have been too short and saggy, but these fit my legs perfectly. I ordered an XST which were hard to zip the first time I wore them but fit my legs perfectly now. They look really nice on, and I like these much better than the variety of other half chap brands I have tried in the past.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit; I just wish they lasted longer. This is my fourth pair of these half chaps. I get about two to two and a half years out of each pair before the inside seam on my calf wears through. I haven't found anything else that fits my leg as well (no one else makes a LT size).

    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...
