As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

These classically styled gloves are unbelievably comfortable and exceedingly durable. 

Favorite Features

  • Soft pigskin palm for grip 
  • Soft pigskin finger rein reinforcements
  • Cool knit crochet back for comfort and style

Sizing It Up

To determine your glove size, measure around your hand at the widest part, excluding thumb. The number of inches should equal your glove size.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just O.K. I really wanted to like this glove. I've heard great things about SSG, but I was nervous about switching brands because Mountain Horse has been my "go to" for about 10 yrs. But the Mountain Horse gloves finally wore out and SmartPak doesn't carry the crochet gloves in black, so I decided to risk it. They fit pretty well, if not slightly small, but that's not really my main complaint. When I took them off after riding multiple horses at the barn I work at, my hands were dyed black and I had blisters on both of my "ring" fingers where the reinforcement patch was. I figured it would only happen once, but it's happened 3 times so far. I'll be curious to see if it continues as they get broken in. But, aside from those two things, they really are comfortable and they look nice!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value! These gloves are great for the price! Awesome schooling gloves. Well constructed and nice quality despite the cheap price. Easy to slip on and off with the horseshoe design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome gloves! These gloves are great. They are true to sizing and I love the air-flow through the crochet. They have a good grip and have a mostly classic look that I love!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gloves I love these gloves. They're especially good for summertime riding because the looseness at the wrist means that you don't get an ugly tan line. I usually just let them get filthy, but occasionally I throw them in the washing machine, which they handle with no problem at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them They are very comfortable, and wear very well. I ride in them 4 days a week, on 2 horses per day, you get more than your money worth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great warm weather glove This is my second pair of these gloves. They are a good glove for warm weather schooling - the crochet back allows plenty of ventilation to keep your hands from getting too hot, unlike full leather gloves. They don't hold up much more than one season (I ride 5-6 times a week), but aren't prohibitively expensive. Good summer glove for the price. Very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only gloves I ever school in. I will buy these gloves forever. They are perfect for everyday. And they last a long time. They have the perfect balance of protection and flexibility. Also, they recover like nothing ever happened if they get wet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to get used to them, but good gloves I agree with everyone who advised that these run small. I am typically a size 6 or 6 1/2 glove, but ordered a 7 after reading the reviews, and they're still somewhat tight though I think they'll loosen up with time. The leather palms are pretty stiff and need some breaking in before getting comfortable, but they definitely look durable. There's reinforcement in typical wear areas like between the ring and pinkie finger. They look good and the open weave back is great for a little air flow during the summer. Overall, I'm happy with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSG Lycrochet Glove I've worn these gloves for years! They are comfortable and break in easily! Now if they could just come up with a way to keep the fingers from shreading!I recently started my 2 horses on Senior Flex, my 25 year old "retired" paint mare still loves to trail ride in the Arizona mountains. She is barefoot and was getting a little "ouchy". Within 2 weeks of starting the product her hesitation is gone! She is enjoying her outings again.The photo of my 8 year old dressage queen says it all! Any discomfort and she wants to back off, with Senior Flex her attitude is changing daily!SmartPak has always provided fabulous products, service and reasonable prices!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great schooling glove great glove for a reasonable price. when I am riding I can actually feel the air cooling my (sometimes a little sweaty) hands. the deerskin is a good thickness. I dont ride without them. I show in the TredSteo Pro Jumper and love those too!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent comfortable glove Nice comfortable grippy glove for riding in warmer weather. Runs SMALL, buy at least a size up - I had to return mine for a larger size even when I measured carefully for fit. I don't think they're extremely durable - in 2-3 wearings some of the leather has pulled away from the stitching already.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get the right fit! Ordered two different sizes, but they just wouldn't fit.. either too big or too large. Maybe that's what you get with crochet? Who knows... shame though, cause they seemed like they'd be cool to wear in the summer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gloves and SmartPaks The products are good, SmartPaks are great but shipping from SmartPak is a huge debacle as I am a rural customer. The USPS has a way to handle packages for every address in this country. UPS is particularly challenged with rural delivery and has finally offered a service to have USPS make final delivery yet you don't use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SGG lycrochet glove I bought these gloves for general riding after getting a blister from my reins. They are snug at first but soon loosen up and fit perfectly as they are leather. They seem strong and are holding up nicely. I am a size 7 womens glove and they fit just right. I like that there is no velcro or rough wrist closure. they are also cute and comfy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gloves I wore out my last pair of Crochet backed gloves and I tried on a friends pair of SSG Horse Shoe Back Gloves and liked the way they felt. I ordered a size 7 and they're a little tight, but I can feel them stretch out the more I ride in them. So far they're holding up to my lunging and training that I do in them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GLOVE FIT I really like the looks and the open weave back that lets air in. I have rather short fingers and a wide hand so I decided to try the mediums. They were a little tight but the large would have been too long. I put them on and rubbed some leather dressing into them and did some streatching. They are now a perfect fit. I am sure I will be buying more in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PURCHAS These gloves are great for riding in warm weather, but I wear them for everyday work gloves when I'm working in my barn. I always have a pair and feel they are a very good purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Affordable. Nice comfortable gloves, fit beautifully after the first or second wearing. Right amount of grip, great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PURCHASE I am a fan of these riding gloves. I use them for riding and doing my barn work. They are really great during the summer because of the crocheted back.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Might be good I wear a size 9 glove. I've bought other size 9 gloves that fit well. To double check, I measured my hands- size 9. These size "9" are way too small, I'm returning them.
    Date published: 2012-02-28
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small these run small compared to other brands of the same glove. They might strecth some with use but are tight to get on and uncomfortable. Will probably wear out quickly due to being tight. I wear a medium comfortably in other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gloves These gloves fit great after wearing them only once, the fit to my hands without feeling too tight or too bulky. They are a great every day riding glove!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit These gloves are perfect for riding in hot weather and I particularly like the fact they DON"T have a velcro closure which always seems to scratch my saddle. I like the natural color and they are constructed well. I haven't washed them yet but don't anticipate any problems. Wish I had bought 2 pairs.
    Date published: 2011-08-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them-ordered another pair Cool, flexible, and best of all - no Velcro! They do run a little small, though.
    Date published: 2011-07-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gloves This is my second pair of these gloves and I love them. The leather is soft and supple, and they fit perfectly. I also use them for picking up hay, which is a demanding job for gloves and does wear them out but they have lasted longer then any others. They are also nice and cool.
    Date published: 2011-07-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Summer must have! I buy a pair of these gloves every summer. They don't last as long as other gloves but for the price it doesn't matter. They are very comfortable for summer riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these gloves! Very happy with the feel of the reins that these gloves allow.
