Katee Sackhoff,wears a ProChaps ATHLETIC full chaps, one of a kind! Excerpt of an ELLE magazine interview: - How much does a costume help you channel your character in a film like Riddick? - It's incredibly important. If somebody puts you in the wrong costume, it can destroy everything you had in mind about who this person is, says Katee Sackhoff, starring in the movie Riddick (2013) — with Katee Sackhoff and Vin Diesel.

Enjoy the winners'videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/neverchapless Brenna Heiney won 1st Prize and the Public Prize as well. Well deserved ! Here is a short bio: "I am 17 years old and I live in Kentucky. I own two horses of my own, both of who are paint horses. I have been riding for around 11 years and i'm completely obsessed with it! I mainly do hunter/jumpers but occasionally like to go trail riding, cross country schooling, and even tack up western just for fun! I love ProChaps and they are by far one of my favorite pairs of chaps I have ever had. They keep my leg so secure!" The Never without my ProChaps riding chaps contest was a real success, thanks to all the contestants, the judges and you the public who contributed by voting for the best. You will have fun looking at the videos, where riders show creative ways to wear their chaps other than on a horse.
