The Collection:

This world champion mounted shooter’s collection of chinks serves multiple purposes. “The dress code of the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association requires contestants to wear chaps or chinks as a way of preserving the American Western lifestyle,” Lenseigne explains. “As with many Western disciplines, apparel and tack in the performance arena are flashy and fun—my chinks are no exception.”

Acid-wash hide, neon, crystals, even fish scales adorn Lenseigne’s 13 pairs of chinks, which she’s known to share with close friends at CMSA events. “My favorite pair is on the left,” she shares. “They’re custom-made by Kippy’s and loaded with Swarovski crystals.They’re truly stunning when they catch light like a disco ball.”
