Cowboy Chaps Savvy

Cowboy chaps (pronounced "shaps") are leather leg coverings worn by horseback riders – typically cowboys and cowgirls – as protection against weather, timber, brush, rope burns, and other hazards. They are buckled around the waist, and are open in the back so a rider’s seat is not covered. Chaps run the full length of the rider's legs. The most common styles of chaps are batwing, shotgun, and rodeo with each style having variations.
