Where does a cowboy wear his chaps?

  • Over his ears
  • Around his ankles
  • Around his legs correct

    Chaps were introduced by the Spanish in order to protect their legs from cacti, brush and other things found in the wild. The word "chap" came from "Chaparejos" which means "leg of iron." The first chaps were just large pieces of cowhide that were attached to the saddle and then wrapped around the legs. It wasn't until early Texans designed the much more functional chaps that you see today in Western films. Source: The Cochise Leather Company
