Question Do you wear chaps?

Random question, I was just wondering and if you do what type of riding do you where them for? My mom wants me to get some so I don't keep ruining my jeans.

Always in jeans, always in boots, sometimes in chaps.

I only wear chaps at horse shows. Too much of a hassle to put them on just for regular riding, unless you're going out on some seriously overgrown trails or something like that ;)

I like wearing them in the winter especially, of if I know I am going to be riding a horse that I need a little bit of extra "glue" for lol I have a basic pair of western chaps with the fringe on them; still good enough for the small shows that I do but they don't look out of place on the trail.I definantly wouldnt want to wear them on eighty degree days though

I use half chaps, but that's it. I ride western and english. Only use the half chaps English.

I ride english and wear chaps... we're quite the sight when we're schooling cross country and running through dressage tests!

They're the kind with the fringe down the leg, big conchos, equitation drop, everything. I can be seen riding in them 98% of the time ;)
They make my legs look short, but it's just schooling, so who cares? They're comfortable, great to ride in during the summer, warm in the winter and only cost me $20 brand new. Can't beat it.

You can kind of see them in this picture:

I wear chaps when I'm wearing jeans, but when I'm wearing breeches no. I ride english. I personally think chaps with jeans look better? Haha, I don't know.
