Spurs/half chaps

I just got some Ariat All Around III Suede half chaps (my local english tack store, the only English one around, is closing and everything was half off, I got them for $50) and I also got some Toklat 1/2 Spurs for riding in my English saddle, my western spurs are too long.

Can I wear spurs with half chaps? If so, how? And how to I put the spur straps on?
Thanks!

I wear 1/2 chaps & spurs all the time. I put on my boots, put on the spurs, then zip on the 1/2 chaps. The spur peeks out from underneath the 1/2 chap.

You can do it two ways. Some people put the paddock boots on first, then the spurs and then do up the half chaps. I used to put my paddock boots on first, then put on the half chaps and then put on the spurs. It's not a big deal but plenty of people ride in both and you shouldn't have any trouble. :)

Funny, I've never heard of putting spurs on under half chaps! I think mine come down too far... I put on my boots, zip up my half chaps, and then put my spurs on over everything. It's a little bulkier then when I wear my tall boots but it works.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I decided to go with half chaps over spurs, one reason being because I have no clue how to put on English spurs straps properly or where the buckle is supposed to be. My buckle was kinda on the inside and I don't want to it scratch my horse so the half chaps cover them :)

The buckle should be to the outside of the boot and the excess leather can be tucked under the spur.
