HaHa I'm not alone! :)
I've Never had this issue before but a few weeks ago I changed barns/riding instructors and the horse she put me on, although great, is very head strong. By the time we were done I had two blisters on my fingers so yeah, I now have 2 pairs of riding gloves (It never fails that I lose/forget one so I have a spare for in my car).

Hey you woozies with sore hands. You're not shovelling enough manure that the shovelling keeps your hands tough.

I agree with the gloves and, if possible, the rubber reins. If I don't wear gloves I prefer the rubber reins for grip and comfort. :)

I had the same problem, adn I got some pretty expensive gloves of my Aunt, I have NEVER had a problem with them, and they have lasted 3 years, and clearly have many years to come, definetly get gloves if it hurts that much!

I've bought some Roeckl Chester gloves since, and they have made a huge difference when I'm riding. :)

Unfortunately, not everyone has their own horse, which makes it pretty hard to shovel enough manure to keep hands tough. Some of us are lucky enough to afford lessons, and that is as close to owning as we can get.

Plus, last time I checked, I don't hold a pitch fork the same way I hold the reins, so there wouldn't be a callous build up there to prevent blistering anyways.
