If there is an open wound, we would not recommend using the Equi-Chaps. If your horse has a strain or tendon injury and you need something for turning out, we would recommend the Equi-Chap Close Contact Chaps as these will provide more support. Stable Chaps don’t provide the support you are after so best to follow the advice of your vet for box rest or stable time.
Our Stable Chaps are designed to keep joints warm and maintain circulation. We would recommend the Stable Chaps to be worn overnight as they are extremely soft and durable. You can also use the Magnetic Chaps while the horse is stabled overnight.
The Close Contact Chaps are designed primarily as a turn-out chap and can be left on for up to 12 hours. If they are left on longer, it is ideal to give the horses’ legs a quick ‘breather’ and reset the chaps on the leg.
Hardy Chaps should not be worn 24 hours a day. Especially in warm weather, when they should only be worn for between 3/4 hours a day. In cooler weather they can be worn for longer periods of time as long as they checked regularly for signs of heat build up.
Yes it is possible to ride in either but as with all leg protection you must make sure it is fits well and is fitted properly before mounting up. We do however offer other boots and wraps specifically designed for ridden work which will be better suited. We do make boots in the Tri-Zone range specifically for jumping and in the Stretch & Flex range for mainly flatwork and some jumping.
The only Equi-Chaps you can wear for long periods in the stable are the Stable Chaps, we don’t recommend using the Close Contact Chaps or Hardy Chaps in the stable.
The Stable Chaps can be put on wet legs as they can help dry the legs, plus they are 100% breathable. We don’t advise putting the Close Contact Chaps or the Hardy Chaps on wet legs.
The Close Contact Chaps provide a greater level of support to the horse’s legs than the Hardy Chaps due to the stretchy nature of the fabric. The Close Contact Chaps are designed to fit snugly, whereas the Hardy Chaps fit more loosely and do not have any stretch at all.
Yes the whole range, Close Contact Chaps, Stable Chaps and Hardy Chaps come in pairs.
Yes but you need to be careful on the size selection as you may need a bigger size than the leg measurement suggests. If you are unsure of sizing check them on clean dry legs to ensure you can exchange them if necessary. Also check out the Hardy Chaps as they are quite generous around the pastern and fetlock area.
The Close Contact Chaps can be machine washed. We recommend a cool wash using a non-biological washing powder. It is advisable to close all the velcro fastenings before washing. Do not tumble dry.
