More about cutting chaps:
Why cutting chaps? They are a full length chap which normally secures to the upper leg with buckles and straps. They also normally have fringe. They are very similar to a batwing chap except that they have a "dropped heel" which is designed to cover the rider's boot heel and spurs. The dropped heal conceals the riders to "cue" the horse with spur or heel movements so those "cues" are not obvious to spectators or judges. This type of chap is not normally worn for pleasure riding because the "dropped heal" drags the ground when walking, however, the dropped heal can be trimmed off for pleasure riding.
Available leather: The cutting chaps are made with sand suede USA tanned leathers in the 4-4.5 ounce range. The suede leather can be brushed for easy cleaning.
Size adjustment: They are made with a doubled and stitched backbelt that is laced on in v-braid style and can be adjusted larger by 2" and can be adjusted smaller if more holes are punched. The front belts are 5/8" latigo leather and are also adjustable. The leg straps are adjustable plus or minus 2”.
The basket stamped version has two conchos that attached the backbelt and the backbelt can be adjusted 2” larger or any amount smaller if more holes are punched.
Chap length: Our cutting chaps can be trimmed in length for shorter inseams. Please refer to the detailed photos for individual chaps for information on how much length may be trimmed.
