The Summer holidays are just around the corner and lots of young riders will be planning Summer activities with their Pony. The highlight of the year for many young jockeys is Pony Club Camp. As you can imagine, the organisation behind these events is extensive and coordinating dozens of children and dozens of ponies is no mean feat. In preparation, every member will be handed a very long list of what to bring both for themselves and their pony down to every last detail including quantity of buckets, sponges and brushes. Here at Just Chaps we can help advise riders on the best riding chaps and waterproofs.
You may wonder why riders need riding chaps? Essentially they protect the lower legs from bruising and rubbing from the stirrup straps. Half Chaps need to fit the lower leg snugly so as not to twist and should be comfortable. The Pony Club range of Half Chaps includes Classic Leather which are shaped to hug the leg and made from traditional hard-wearing yet soft leather. Look after your leather Half Chaps with your favourite leather cleaner and feed. The other option is All Purpose which are also well cut to hug the leg and are made from stretchy neoprene. All Purpose are washable and easy care.
To keep clean and dry during Pony Club days out you will need a pair of Waterproofs – again there are two options: Waterproof Riding Trousers are designed to be worn both in the saddle or in the yard and have a full non-slip seat. Waterproof Full Chaps are also perfect for both riding and yard work when you need to stay clean and dry. The Dri Rider Full Chaps can also be removed whilst the rider is in the saddle so perfect for warming up at a show and keeping your jodphurs clean. All waterproofs are easy care and easy wear. Wash gently in cool water as required.
