Measuring for Perfectly Fitting Chaps

Accurate measurements are key to fitting your horse-showing chaps properly.

Some of us dread it, but it’s a fact. To find comfortable, practical, perfectly fitting chaps, we have to face the measuring tape.

 Babe Woods is the resident artisan at Woods’ Western, where chap fitting has become an art.

“We’ve had a booth at the AQHA World Championship Show for around 20 years, and I’ve been doing this work for even longer,” Babe says. “I showed horses, worked for a trainer and worked in a western store. I saw the need for riders to get chaps that fit right and filled it.”

Babe says chaps can be purchased off the rack, but with so many different body types walking around, it is hard to get a good fit from a pair of used leg huggers.
