I paid 6.99 for mine, I just love a bargain - at that price I bought two pair and alternate them. I dont expect them to last longer than the season, but seriously for 6.99 they are warm and comfy and I dont worry that I might lose one (which is what happens to every pair of gloves I have ever owned)

I have those handwarmers. I buy them almost in bulk. They are good, but they don't keep fingers warm. I have poor (next to nil circulation) at times due to a health issue. So I have a harder time then many people to keep those fingers and toes warm :) With the handwarmers, when I'm riding, I keep one in my pocket and switch off hands - one on the reins, one getting warm.

If I can wear mitts, I'm generally OK though, so I do that as much as I can.

I have the SSG winter gripped and like them. Thin, but warm.

I won a Dover contest on Facebook and got a free pair of SSG Below 10 gloves. They are VERY warm and comfy, but I find them a little impairing when riding a green horse whose mouth I really need to feel, so I usually take them off for riding.
If I was on a well-trained horse, I'd probably wear them riding.

Haha. If you "like" Dover on Facebook, they have two contests every week: Fun Friday and Tuesday Trivia. They ask questions and things, and then they choose a random winner. I happened to be a random winner!

The question I answered was about Hickstead, so I got SSG gloves since they were a sponsor of Eric Lamaze.

My hubby picked me up a pair of gloves last year at homedepot, they are made for construction type work, fit snug & have lots of grip - I can do pretty much anything in the barn without having to take them off even to do small buckles and such.

The brand is Tuff Chix (by ironclad) they were designed by Paige from the extreme home makeover show. I absolutely love them and have yet to find a pair as warm & functional.

Hmm, MHFQ, I may have to look at those as my next pair since Carhartt discontinued mine...

Ooh, never mind, they only come in pink .


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

That's the only thing I don't like about them! I suppose they could be dyed black with a bottle of Rit though lol!

LOL, oh, well. Mine still have plenty of use in them so it will probably be another 2 or 3 winters before I have to start looking seriously for a new pair.
