I love my Pro Chaps because of their soft, supple leather, breathability and sophisticated look! They polish up to a really nice shine like a tall boot. As a trainer riding an average of 6 to 10 horses a day, they have held up very well for me! I actually just added a leather panel on the inside of the calf at the cobbler, because I had worn a hole through them and didn?t want to part with them! Looking forward to getting my next pair.?
