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'!).

Why We Love This

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.

Favorite Features

  • High Spanish cut topline
  • Full length back zip system w/ keeper
  • Stretch skirt over instep

    Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.1579 out of 5 by 19.
    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look great, feel great, but are too tight I just got these and unfortunately they have to go back as they are too small/tight. I guess I should have measured better. Other than that, they look and fee great!
