We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Style change I have worn these chaps for 15 years and always have been satisfied. My last pair didn't hold up as well as they used to. When I ordered my normal small tall I couldn't even zip them above my calf. they run very small. In a debate if I will order more or go with a different brand. Disappointedx

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfy! I bought these about a month ago and they have been great. They seem to run true to size and are super comfortable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and snug I've been searching for an elegant looking half chap for a while, and these fit the bill! The thick zipper is easy to use, outside leather is pretty, and inside panel is grippy and soft. My calf measures just around 14.5 and is about 16.5 in height, and the MS fits very snugly and hits at the perfect spot at my knee. I tried the SS first since the size chart said they'd fit a 14.5 calf, but those were way too small. I can't speak to durability yet, but I'm looking forward to taking good care of these beauties!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same as they used to be I've had 3 pairs of these, each that lasted several years. The same size has always fit me--they were always a bit snug when new but I like a tighter fit, and they break in and become a little less tight. So, I ordered the same size I always order, and I couldn't even zip them. The materials they are made out of have changed since my last pairs, and look a lot cheaper. The leather is still decent, but the synthetic stretchy parts near the zipper and at the base of the half-chap that goes right over the top of your foot look really cheap and ugly. I'm not a fan of them and have not decided whether to reorder them in the next size up or to give up on this model.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Name is Confusing/Sizes Run Small I've worn the Ariat Close Contact Half for years and always bought a size Small. Great product or I wouldn't keep coming back. My calf measures 13.5" but the small which, supposedly fits 14.5, was so small I couldn't zip it up. Returned the Small for a MS which has, supposedly, a 15.5 calf. Thank goodness SmartPak has free returns on sized items or I'd be out a lot of $$$ in shipping.
