There’s nothing worse than getting calluses [or blisters] from reins rubbing between your fingers. Luckily, there are a bunch of affordable schooling gloves to choose from! Here are some of my favorites:
SSG Technical Riding Gloves, $26.99 on DoverSaddlery.com: I’ve had these gloves for going on 4 years now, and they still fit and feel like day one. They have no rips in them either! I highly recommend these. They have a skin-tight feel but don’t make your hands sweat. They also have a good grip.
SSG Leather Pro Show Gloves, $17.62 on StateLineTack.com: These are the newest addition to my glove arsenal, and so far I love them! For the price, they look and feel more than just $20. They have nice breathable leather on the outside and palm of the glove and are touchscreen friendly. They’re professional enough for clinics and show, yet casual enough (subtly so) for just schooling purposes too.
