So I haven't ridden without half chaps since my first lesson. I think I started riding in August. I can't remember. Anyways, I feel as if my leg is a lot better.
I saw a 13 year old cantering bareback, I am nowhere's near as solid as she was. I really hate the look of my current half chaps, they were cheap and are falling apart. I was wondering do they actually make that big of a difference with your leg? My leg is alright, my biggest things I need to work on is not leaning forward so much when I really need to push my horse into the corner and keep my weight down in the heels when I'm asking her over. I don't know what it is but when I give pressure, I am horrible at keeping my heels down while I do it. I have a tendency to bring my heel up to do it.
But anyways I was wondering if they make that big of a difference?
