There is a good mix at my barn of tall boots and half chaps.
I wore a pair of rubber riding boots for a long time to ride in. When they were finally done years later, I invested in a pair of quality Ariat half chaps and paddock boots. I like them because they are easy to slip on and off for driving. However, I do have a really nice pair of tall boots that I use for showing, and bought them specifically for that purpose. I also shouldn't grow anymore, besides weight gains or losses, so for me it is worth while to have both.
