EQUEST Leather Grip Pro
Hi guys I am Gem Gilbert also known as @gemeventing https://www.instagram.com/gemeventing/
Im excited to be writing this blog/ product review for eGlove.
The eQuest Leather Grip Pro is a brilliant leather glove which you can find here: https://www.eglove.co.uk/horse-riding-gloves/ is not only is a fab riding glove but also allows you to venture on your phone or smart watch, anything electrical that you would usually poke thousands of times , until you give up and take off your gloves to use it. Well there will be no more of that! No cold hand faffing with these bad boys.
The Leather Grip Pro is available in 4 common equestrian colours- black, navy blue, tan and chocolate brown. I have the navy and chocolate brown. Both stunning colours perfect for any type of equestrian discipline, I use mine for jumping, hacking, Dressage and day to day riding, the possibility’s are endless. However they are the perfect kind of glove for out hacking, I have found as when you see that perfect photo between your horses ears (if your horse is anything like mine you have to be quick to get the ears forward) you can take a photo really quickly and easy!
So the glove itself you ask? You know they are electronic friendly. Now about it’s performance so the leather glove keeps your hands warm as long as the temperature is about 3 degrees. The elastic breathable structure in between the fingers and across the knuckle allows for your hand not to be suffocated and allow the glove to mould round you, also perfect for those competition sweaty palm nerves. The extra grip strip on the edge of the glove is my favourite bit as we all know that one horse that pulls! These gloves are perfect for that, as the grip allows you to get a firm hold of the reins without them slipping out especially on a typical British summers day when the heavens open. I can officially say my hands stayed dry for 30 minutes but the weather was horrendous but it didn’t affect my grip on my reins!
My other favourite feature is how soft the leather is, it is so comfortable and breathable its amazing. The velcro strap allows you to have the gloves done up as tight or loose as you want! And they aren’t just all for adults they do a range for kids also!
How to clean them? Everyone knows how grubby gloves can get and you wouldn’t go out competing with a dirty saddle so why would you go out with gloves. To clean and care for your gloves use a good quality saddle soap and rub it into the leather with a soft cloth in a circular moment that will get your gloves shining!
I can’t recommend eglove enough! The Friendly and helpful service which is second to none, what more could you want?

EDITORS NOTE - We met Gem at the West Country Equine Fair - where she purchased a pair of the leather gloves. She subsequently purchased another pair from the website. We then offered her a pair of the prototype Winter Elite's in blue for next season in return for a blog piece. We simply asked for an honest review. Hopefully you'll enjoy it! Thanks Gem x
