A History of Chaps
Early cowboys worked on ranches and spent their days riding in wild terrain, with cattle, in all weather conditions. Cowboys spent most of their working time on horseback, so protective clothing became essential.
Chaps protect the cowboy from the rope burns that could occur from catching, holding down, and working with cattle, horses, or other livestock. Chaps also form a protective shield over the legs to help prevent cuts and grazes when riding through vegetation such as low scrub, bushes, thickets, or cacti, which often have vicious thorns.
