The chaps on this page are a sample of what was made recently. A pair of my chaps won 1st place at the Sheridan WY., Leatherworkers Debut last Spring. Some of these designs are fairly complex and not something you'll see at every show!
Most of the pictured chaps were made for Reining, Versatility and Working Cowhorse classes. Many people use chinks but some folks prefer the more refined look of chaps.

Tops and cuffs edged with very fine piping in the bronze patent. Base is Bomber Brown leather as used in my Rustic Reiner chaps.
