    Default What's your favorite pair of winter riding gloves?

    Need a good recommendation on everyday schooling gloves for winter, preferably non-leather and not too bulky! Links to where they can be purchased would be great. Thanks in advance!

    They have great grip and they are very warm.

    I was going to suggest these as well...very warm and not bulky at all!

    I just bought the Roeckl Winter Chesters. Despite living in northern New England, I've always refused to wear winter gloves because I cannot stand losing the close-contact feel on my reins. The Winter Chesters are great though! A little bulkier than the normal Chesters (to be expected), but still a very good contact on the reins.

    I just bought these and rode in them and they were GREAT. Not bulky and really warm, and they have the grippers on the palms that help with holding your reins. They also are made of a material that DOES NOT attract dust and hay and shavings. I thought they were great!

    I have the silk-lined SSG gloves that others have posted... they work great for lessons and more active work, but they're a little too light for just hacking around outside in the wind. Then I use my bulkier Mountain Horse ones. I do love how thin the SSG ones are.

    I also have the silk-lined SSGs and love them, but definitely not a winter glove (more like a Fall glove). I just ordered the Heritage Extremes from Dover. Anyone have these?

    Just got the SSG Winter Ranchers for working around the barn... The only thing I question is why it took me this long to get them. They are WONDERFUL!

    Also just picked up the new SSG 10 Below gloves for riding. Another great pair, they keep my fingers nice and warm. http://www.ssgridinggloves.com/style-6400-ssg-10-below

    I really like the Ariat Tek Grip insulated gloves and I am always one of those people with cold hands/feet, and even more so since I had major surgery on my hand. Those seem to do a good job.

    For non riding I have a pair of gloves called Manzella Wind Stoppers. Love them. LOVE them.
