For competitions, do you have to buy leather chaps or any chaps will do?

Thank you everyone that answered!
Any chaps will do for lower level shows but leathers are needed for higher level shows
I recommend tall boots
I recommend leather, for higher end shows
Hi Bianca,

It really depends on the competition. For a simple schooling show I’m sure suede half chaps are fine. For some higher end shows, leather are suggested. Depending on the type of show you’ll be competing at, tall boots may be your best option. However, different locations have different rules and I would recommend asking your training or checking the show regulations.
