Ariat has created a new glove for this winter to combat freezing fingers for riders on chilly morning hacks, competitions and schooling sessions.

“Having cold hands can be horribly uncomfortable and make a serious dent in your riding enjoyment levels, which is why we have created a toasty warm ‘Insulated Tek Grip Gloves’,” said an Ariat spokesman.

The gloves are slim-line and lightweight made from Polartec Wind Pro stretch fleece with ahard coating – which retains body heat to keep fingers warm.

They feature a synthetic suede palm to promote grip and sensitivity, articulated fingers for freedom of movement and non-snag adjustable velcro closure.

They are avalibale in slate, bark or black in sizes 6 – 8.5 and cost £33.50.
