Why do riders wear gloves?
1. Riding gloves are used to protect the rider's hands
- the friction of the reins and thus prevent the formation of blisters or calluses
- cold, which is more than appreciable in difficult weather conditions.
2. Riding gloves make it easier to hang on the reins, not inconsiderable especially with a horse of character and therefore can also be considered safe.
The qualities valued by the rider are:
easy threading due to elasticity and material
It should be borne in mind that well adapted riding gloves make the rider forget himself while preserving the sensations he would have with his bare hands.
