Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I got these at the local tack shop for around $13. I was in desperate need of some nice gloves that fit well.
Likes: These gloves are soft, comfortable, and do not make my hands sweaty in warmer weather. They were a nice color of pink. Not my barn color, but I like pink. The Velcro wrist was nice and well-made, it didn't pinch or cause the hook part to scratch my hand like some gloves.
Dislikes: The pink color faded fast. The tan pigskin also turns black and stained a lot over most of the inside. The gloves were kind of slippery at times before the reins roughed up the pigskin underside. Some of the crochet threads were sticking out or coming undone. These gloves started out pretty but the are horrible looking now.
Quality: The gloves are overall made okay, but with a few problems. They do not stay the color, and I am glad I didn't get the ones with the white backing as it would have been much worse. These gloves only grip on laced reins, otherwise you are far better off without them using nylon or smooth leather. My mare ran off with me and my fingers were slipping badly on the roper reins so it was quite dangerous.
Summary: These gloves are pretty if you keep them clean, but I wouldn't buy them again.
