Grrr....Decent Gloves

I have a pair of Heritage Performance Tackified Leather Gloves. I love the way they feel, problem is, I bought them in November and they are totally falling apart. The leather has gotten holes in the palm, from the the thumb to the first finger. I know they fit my palm, but I have freakishly long fingers. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't even ride my horse yet, all this wear is from ground-work and training. It really important to me that the gloves have leather palms. Thanks!

Do you have the reciept? What is the return policy?

That totally sucks, I LOVE heratige gloves, I have a pair of their winter gloves and they have lasted me a very long time.

I have no suggestions other than taking them back to the store you purchased them from and see what they can do for you?

Yepp I agree with Mie, I hope it turns out you end up with a good result!

If you are just considering gloves for using during riding and groundwork and they don't have to be pretty, you might consider roping gloves. They have a trimmer fit for us long fingered folks and the palms and fingers are usually made out of a very heavy duty material similar to Kevlar, designed to prevent against rope burns (at high speed) and other friction. However, if you are looking for something for warmth, I can't help you, I usually just get the wal-mart cheapos and layer them with those little stretchy gloves.

I have 3 kinds of gloves.
1. Leather choppers with a sheepskin liner for the bitter cold days and doing chores.

2. Then I have a combo "pair" with a pair of cheap stretchy gloves with a pair of those convertible fingerless glove/mitten thingys (like these Convertible Glove Mittens - Compare Prices, Reviews and Buy at NexTag - Price - Review but better/cheaper). These are great for handling hay or barn chores where you need warmth and a little more dextarity

3. Last I have some Carhart leather gloves that are lined. I use them for riding, hoof trimming, anything that requires more dextarity. These are what I have and I love them. Carhartt WA009 Women Insulated Utility Glove - Carhartt Womens Accessories - Carhartt for Women I also have a non insulated pair for hoof trimming in the summer.

Oh and I have big hands for a woman. Large thin palms and long skinny fingers so it's a pain to find decent gloves.

MNT, are those carhartts really that warm? That is one of the cheapest pair of "good" gloves that I have seen in a long time and I figure if they can withstand your winter and be warm enough for you, they should be perfect for down here.

I LOVE them. Mom got them for me this last Christmas. I've been wearing them to ride and trim while the temps are between 0-20 deg F (I didn't really ride during our last nasty cold snap but I think they'll do great) and my hands have been nice and warm. They're actually a little too warm when it gets up to 30 degs.

Awesome. Thanks! I may have to get me a pair. I never thought to look up their website but their stuff is much cheaper there. In a tack store around here, one of their coats would cost $150 at least so finding them for around $100 is awesome.

I'm thinking about these:

Heritage Tackified Pro-Air Show Gloves.

I just love the way Heritage Gloves feel, so maybe I'll try a different style.
