    Anyone have any suggestions for good cold weather riding gloves?

    I am sure there is dedicated winter riding gloves in any tackstore however I have never used any. I use crosscountry ski gloves, just because it's what I had around. They are tight fitting & very warm. As long as you can hold your reins properly, look for any type of winter glove, doesn't have to specially made for riding.

    Unfortunately, the kind that I love isn't made anymore. I always have hell finding gloves that fit well. They are all either too wide or the fingers are too short (I have long-fingered, thinner hands). I finally found a pair made my Carhartt that I love and they discontinued them .

    I got a pair of Mt Horse (they were half-price in Dover). So far so good! :)

    Has anyone ever seen any battery-operated gloves? You know, like those battery socks they used to have? I really would love a pair.

    These are the cheapest darn pair of winter riding gloves, and I absolutely love them. I have two pairs, wash them each twice a week and they are holding up well. They are the perfect weight, warm but still thin enough to feel the reins.

    I never have, but I've not really looked. About the closest I've found is using those air activated hand warmers and putting them on the backs of your hands (or in the palms) inside of a decent pair of gloves. I used to do that when I was working nights outside in the winter. Worked rather well, actually.

    Just bought a pair of these on eBay for less than $10! Hopefully they hold up better than my last pair of SSG gloves... :(

    I like the SSG all weather gloves for riding. But for chores I have various thickness fleece gloves.

    One very important thing is to ensure your gloves (and boots) are dry before you put them on!

    If you horse will ride on a loose rein, try using double ply nylon rein as they aren't as cold as leather. They are flexible enough that you can hold them and shove your hands in your jacket pockets. My preference is heavy wool mitts which will grip the reins. My reins were made by Hamilton and I've had them forever.
