What kind of gloves do you use for horse riding? Leather gloves are usually grippy enough all on their own, but other materials will need either a leather grip pad sewn in or rubber or PVC grip dots or pads to ensure a good grip. The grip is an essential factor in the safety of your gloves.
Should you wear gloves when horseback riding? The quality of the reins is an important factor in your choice to wear gloves. Some reins have less grip than others so you can lose control, others are uncomfortable if you ride for several hours. It is in these situations, wearing gloves can give you more control over your mount.
