Riders fed up with cold, wet hands from competing, hacking or schooling in the rain can now buy a new, fully waterproof riding glove from Woof Wear.

The gloves, which sell at £40, offer “minimal bulk around the fingers and maximum feel on the reins,” according to Woof Wear.

Features include a breathable and waterproof membrane, thermal lining and extra-long cuff.

They are available from retailers and tack shops nationwide and at www.woofwear.com.
