Polainas Repujada style General working polainas may have tab and stud fixings.
Traditional polainas are laced up with leather ties (agujetas) and have no metal fittings.
Polainas are worn with Paseo/Calzona trousers (with caireles), not Campero trousers (turn ups), over short boots or ‘Vaquera’ shoes (Zapato Vaquero).

Black leathers are incorrect when riding in Doma Vaquera or Clásica. The buckles should be black metal and buckled on the inside of the leg, as shown.
This is the traditional position for the buckles and is said to have evolved from the older gentleman rider being able to sit down and bring his leg up so that securing the buckle is easier. Page 14 of 29 www.webshop.viva-iberica.com Spanish Riding Costume & Tack Guide © Yeguada Iberica
