I am looking for a good pair of grippy gloves. I wish I could ride without gloves, but I can't seem to do it. Right now I ride in these: http://www.doversaddlery.com/ssg-wor...X1-3934/cn/29/ but I cannot hold tight to the reins. I see so many gloves out there, but the nice looking ones run $40.00 plus. I can't spend that right now. Or I should say my husband would not appreciate me spending over $40.00 for a pair of gloves! $20.00 range is better!
I'm tired of constantly having to adjust my reins while doing a course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
As much as I love the Roeckl Chesters, I got sick of dishing out the $$ after I would saw right through them. Now I stick to RSL and Good Hands. Same sort of synthetic/super close contact feel without the price. I don't feel bad wearing through these guys super fast! (though the RSLs hold up super well, IMO)
These are more durable. I have never had a problem with them, and again you can find at most local tack stores. I just bought a pair at my local store for $17.00. These have "Aquasuede" palms, and are also pretty grippy.
I completely agree about the Neumann's I have only found them for $30 with free shipping, but are totally worth it!
I was getting over pneumonia at Thermal last year and my hands were a bit shaky (even off the horse) so I bought a pair of these and they saved my butt over a final fence or two when my strength was lacking. Plus they lasted a long time through all sorts of weather. I rode and showed in them all year and just retired them a couple of weeks ago because of a horse chewing induced tear.
Heritage schooling gloves! I think I am partial to Heritage just because they don't smush my long fingers, but these I love these gloves. I have had them for 6 months (everyday, multiple horses) and they still grip like crazy and look new. They also are extremely light , thin and allow close contact.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
They are very thin (I really hate bulky gloves) and extremely grippy. I picked these up at a local tack shop for a little less than the MSRP listed on the Heritage website. I would absolutely purchase them again
I also agree with the SSG Technical gloves. I have been wearing the same pair for a few years and I still love them. I even wear them under another pair of heavy gloves in the winter for a little extra warmth, so I get a lot of use out of them. They are nice for schooling and showing in the jumpers, but I don't wear them for the hunters because of the design.
I recently converted to the SSG Hybrid gloves. I wore the crochet-back gloves for years, years, years, and YEARS (literally - I refused to wear anything else, even in the winter) but as soon as I put on the Hybrids, it was love. They are a slimmer fit and so far - very grippy. I believe they were around $30 at Dover?
