Why ride in gloves?
Keeping a consistent contact on the reins, whatever your chosen discipline, is vital. Why? Because this is one of the ways of keeping the channel of communication open with your horse along with an application of aids. How you hold the reins can have a bearing on the consistency of your contact in your hands, so this is where gloves can help!
How can they help?
Gloves can help to provide grip on the reins. They can also protect against the weather, because cold or wet winter weather can mean your hand position and grip can be compromised. Cold hands do not work well! In the summer time gloves can help absorb sweat making sure your hands and fingers do not slip on the reins. Gloves can also protect your hands if your horse suddenly pulls the reins through your hands because they can help prevent blisters or rubs on the skin.
