Do you have any recommendations on how to break in chaps?

Just ride in them and walk in them any chance u get u can even walk into Walmart in them
Just walk in them wherever you can, like the barn and your house. Or you can clean them well and use them a lot. 🤗
The most important thing is to wear them while riding as often as you can. If their leather, clean and condition them after every ride. I like to use a damp rag to wipe them down, liquid saddle soap or leather cleaner, and a balm conditioner.
If they aren’t leather, just wear them as much as possible with oil on them, this will soak into the leather as it moveable on your legs! Also riding in them is the best thing! It may be a bit uncomfortable at first but it is honestly the most effective way! If you don’t want to ride in them yet, just walk around the house in them//or the yard!

Baby oil isn’t good, but pretty much any oil such as veg oil is good, just don’t overuse it as it can cause a build up of oil! Hope this helps 🏆
