Best Riding Gloves for Cold-Weather Riding
Horseback riding in the cold winter weather is no easy task. To stay warm, we recommend wearing lots of layers and good quality winter riding boots. No winter riding outfit is complete without gloves to keep your hands warm. Your hands are an important riding aid, and numb fingers aren’t effective.
A quality pair of winter riding gloves will keep your hands warm but are breathable enough to keep your hands from getting sweaty. They also should provide grip so you can have a good feel on your reins - rain, snow, or shine. The material should be heavy-duty and flexible.
