Have you tried shopping any non-equestrian stores? Look at cross country skiing gloves, they are usually think so that you can have a good but flexinble grip on your poles. Snow boarding might also work, thy usually have grippy material on the palms and edges of the hands. Otherwise perhpas some glove liners and a pair of regular leather gloves a size larger? Some ideas: http://www.rei.com/product/712337 http://www.rei.com/product/725082?vc...S_CLOTHING_TOC
I've hunted with Arapahoe several times on formal days, and not noticed anyone wearing white gloves. They tend to adhere to the classic turnout as described by Wadsworth, meaning you'd be fine with brown or tan or 'chamois' colored gloves. Typically the white string gloves are carried under the billets and used on rainy days.
None of those look very warm. Boy a white glove seems very impractical for hunting. But then we wear white shirts and breeches. Go figure. I looked at photos from their website and it does indeed look like people are wearing white gloves on formal days.
Your best bet might be to find another member with nice warm looking white gloves and ask them where they got them.

Set youself apart from the crowd, ride a paint horse, you're sure to be spotted
Painted, have you checked into the Neoprene water ski gloves? These can be found at most sporting goods stores, and they work wonderful. They are not thick and bulky, like ski gloves, and they have a leather palm great for keeping a nice grip on the reins. I used to wear these all the time when galloping at the track, even when the wind chills would get down into the single digits, they worked.
