By Paige Cerulli
While there are hints of spring emerging, we still have some winter weather left to get through. A good pair of winter riding gloves can make all the difference when starting to leg up horses for the spring show season. If your trusty pair of winter gloves has had enough, then check out my reviews of four winter riding gloves that you should consider adding to your winter riding gear.
Heritage Extreme Winter Glove
The Heritage Extreme Winter Glove is intended for use in the coldest winter conditions. This glove is designed to keep your hands and fingers warm, and features 3M Thinsulate® insulation for superior warmth. Its Polar Fleece lining makes for a soft, comfortable surface. If the insulation and fleece aren’t warm enough for you, then insert a hand warmer into the glove’s zippered hand warmer pocket for even more warmth. Waterproof and touch screen friendly, this is a great glove to keep you feeling great in bitter temperatures.
Kerrits Circuit Fleece Glove
The Kerrits Circuit Fleece Glove is a great choice for cold weather rides. Highly affordable and stylish, this glove makes an elegant addition to your riding wardrobe. This glove features a microfleece interior which is both soft and warm, and its elastic cuff helps to keep out drafts and wind. The GripStretch™ suede palm gives you an excellent grip, even when riding in the rain or snow.
Roeckl Chester Winter Glove
Roeckl is widely regarded as a manufacturer of top-quality performance gloves, and the Roeckl Chester Winter Glove is no exception. This glove offers plenty of warmth while maintaining a slim fit – you won’t have to deal with the bulk of classic winter riding gloves. This glove features a durable lining of Roeckl-Tex, an exclusive fleece fiber which helps to keep your hands warm during your ride. The outer Vesta Synthetic leather gives you a great feel and grip on the reins, allowing for effective communication with your horse despite the fact that you’re wearing winter gloves. These gloves are a great choice when you’re looking for a snug fit which doesn’t interfere with your feel of the reins.
SSG Winter Training Gloves
The SSG Winter Training Gloves are a versatile choice suitable for riding, handling, and training horses. Crafted from soft cowhide leather, this glove protects your hands from the wind while remaining easily flexible so that you can move your hands freely. The interior features a 3M Thinsulate® lining, and the palm is lightly lined so that you can maintain a quality feel of the reins. This glove’s knitted cuff helps to keep out drafts, and the glove is warm to an impressive -32 degrees.
