Riding Gloves Guide

Friends of equestrian sports often divide their spirits when it comes to the use of riding gloves. Many riders fear that their reins will get worse and lose their sense of connection to the horse’s mouth. Even so, there is hardly a rider who does not occasionally Riding Gloves wearing. If in winter the riding hall is freezing cold or at the hour on the jumping field drizzle sets in, offer the gloveswelcome protection. But what criteria should a good riding glove fulfill?

The best materials for Riding Gloves

For the production of riding gloves very different materials are used. Leather is one of the classic glove materials, besides artificial leather, various textiles as well as synthetic fibers and material mixes can be found. Genuine leather is extremely robust and has a long life. However, the fine leathers that make up Riding Gloves be made, not cheap. In addition, they must be maintained regularly and carefully so that the leather stays soft and the gloves do not lose their shape. Synthetic leather and modern synthetic materials are cheaper and also very resistant. They are often very light and can be washed easily. However, it is not advisable to use cheap synthetic gloves that do not allow air to circulate or that may release harmful substances to the skin when worn. Lightweight cotton gloves and elastic are popular Knitted gloves, They are the cheapest option and easy to clean. On the inner surfaces they are often provided with rubber knobs, which improve the grip during riding. Textile gloves have the least durability and must be replaced faster than gloves made of other materials.

Which requirements must Riding Gloves fulfill?

In equestrian sports, the gloves are continuously exposed to friction, moisture from perspiration and precipitation, temperature differences and soiling. Therefore, they should be robust and resilient. During the cold season, the focus is on cold protection. In these months, firmer materials are required, but should affect the feeling in the hand as little as possible. In summer, air-permeable gloves are preferred. Important is a good grip so that the reins do not slip through the fingers when riding. A very good fit is crucial in the riding glove. On the one hand, it should fit snugly, so that no wrinkles arise. On the other hand, it must not be too tight, because the hands can swell, especially in warm weather by the physical activity. There should not be any annoying seams where they could push while riding. Often, highly stressed parts of the glove are provided with a reinforcement, especially if the material of the glove is relatively thin. Many winter gloves have a tight-fitting waistband at the wrist to prevent the ingress of moisture. Airy summer gloves are loosely attached to the joint to allow air circulation. Models with a Velcro fastener on the back of the hand have proved their worth. They can be flexibly adapted to the hand shape and conveniently put on and taken off.

Choose the right riding glove

The range of different models and designs is enormous. Well-known manufacturers are for example PFIFF, Waldhausen, Cavallo or Lösdau as well as the glove specialist Röckl. The two most important selection criteria when buying are the actual purpose of use as well as the rider himself. Heavy work gloves, such as those worn by cowboys, are more of a hindrance to most equestrian disciplines. For kids and teenagers, inexpensive gloves made of stretchy material with knobs are handy when hands are still growing and expensive Leather Gloveswould not fit after a few months. It is also not tragic if the gloves remain in the stable and can no longer be found. In addition, there are these simple models in very many colors, which especially the younger equestrian fans like. For adults, the muted colors are in the foreground: grays and blues, black, burgundy. Those who get on the horse once or twice a week are well advised to wear a robust all-season glove. For multi-riders, it is advisable to purchase several pairs to always have suitable gloves for different situations and weather conditions. For the tournament equipment color and execution must correspond to the regulations of the respective riding discipline.
