    Default Grippiest Gloves on a Budget?

    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.

    What about these? They do run small, though. http://www.amazon.com/Bionic-Womens-...1341179&sr=1-1

    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)

    The SSG Technical gloves are super grippy and right around $20. Highly recommend them.

    I always buy super cheap gloves, because I tend to lose them. Constantly. So, the two I like the best are

    http://www.doversaddlery.com/ssg-lyc...X1-3982/cn/29/

    These are super cheap and easy to find at local stores. They seem to always get holes in the thumbs, though. But they are grippy (leather palms).

    http://www.doversaddlery.com/ssg-all...1-39039/cn/29/

    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 like the cheap $8-$9 cotton cheapos... with the pimply palms... they are usually pretty comfy and no big deal if you lose them

    Neumann Tackified Riding Gloves!

    I've found them for around 25 bucks, they last forever and are super grippy, I won't ride in anything else.

    Neumann makes the football gloves that everyone in the NFL uses, so they're definitely grippy.

    Go to a consignment store in your area or check EBAY. Good grippy gloves at a fraction of the cost for new gloves.

    Ariat gloves are cheapish, but they break super fast. I go through them very quickly becuase they get holes (and it's not even after that many rides...)

    aka not ariats!

    Yes, they rock! And they seem to last forever. My only complaint is that the velcro loses its grip.

    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.

    I've worn these for over 20 years...they just seem to get better. I get black for show and barn. SSG with the Aquasuede palm and fingers, around $26.

    I love the grip with rained-on or sweaty reins.

    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.

    I am really, really picky about my riding gloves and I absolutely LOVE these:
    http://www.heritagegloves.com/PremierShowGlv.html

    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.

    Thanks, everyone, for your great tips. I will check all these out and get a new pair!

    These, I get the large youth football gloves generally for about $15 on ebay. I take a seam ripper and remove the embroidery.

    These, exact same as the riding gloves

    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?
