Winter gloves for horseback riding should keep the rider’s hands warm without making them sweat. They should also afford sufficient grip while still allowing a good feel for the reins. Being waterproof, or at least water-resistant, is a bonus. Look for cozy insulating liners made from Thinsulate™, polar fleece, or Gore-Tex. Some riders swear by silk glove liners for extra warmth!
