Half chaps are an aid but you need to learn to balance yourself correctly without them first, otherwise you'll always have to use them. I learned to ride without any aids, so if I don't use half chaps or full seat breeches I can still balance properly on the horse.
Now that I'm older and physically less flexible than I used to be, I allow myself certain aids such as half chaps, flex stirrups, and full seat breeches. I don't need them to ride, but they do make it more comfortable for these old bones.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
