I always use soft leather gloves when riding-warmer in the winter, avoid brown/age spots in the summer. Also keeps hands softer & cleaner. When it's really hot, I sometimes wear cotton gloves. It has saved me from many a blister from my leather reins. (One rein stop, fall off, etc.) In my new colder climate I use insulated gloves in the winter. It's a good idea to remove any rings-especially if any have diamonds that could be lost. (Voice of experience)
