Judging by the videos I see on YouTube, lots of people ride their horses in shorts during the summer. Okay, it’s an appealing idea and maybe a way to stay cool.
But in my experience is so darn uncomfortable! I’ve tried riding with full chaps (too hot and sticky, and if you zip wrong, it’s incredibly painful), half chaps (it’s okay but from the knee up, I find it’s too sticky and uncomfortable and my legs get chafed, with either a bareback pad or a saddle); no chaps (that’s really uncomfortable as the insides of my calves were rubbed raw).
So, what’s the trick? Let me on on your secrets!
