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?

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. http://harttapparel.com/carhartt-fo...hartt-womens-utility-glove-grain-pigskin.html

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. :D

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.
