5 Best Summer Riding Gloves for 2022

5 Best Summer Riding Gloves for 2021

You can spot a rider in a crowd in the summer by many things but most notably their tan lines. Equestrians might wear jeans and a conveniently cut top to fool others into thinking that underneath there’s an all over tan, but there's one thing that they cannot hide: a glove tan.

To anyone who’s not horsey, wearing gloves in the warm weather sounds like madness. However, as riders we know how important gloves can be even in the sweltering heat. Designed to protect a rider’s hands from friction, blisters or burns that can occur along with the statutory secure grip, none of these requirements change when the temperature soars. Most riders have plenty of pairs of winter riding gloves but nothing or hardly anything for the summer.
