How to | Measure for Riding Gloves

Sep 17th 2019

Riding gloves are made in either half-inch increments or apparel sizing from XS - XXL. Riding gloves should fit snugly, but not feel tight or binding.We pay particular interest to the fingertips, as that will affect your grip on the reins.


To measure for glove size:

1) Use a soft fabric tape measure with inch increment (or convert cm to inches)

2) Measure around the widest part of your hand, excluding your thumb. The tape measure should be snug and straight, but not tight.



3) The number of inches around your hand represents your glove size. In the photo, the glove size is determined as 7 inches. If the tape measure showed 6¾ as the measurement, then the recommended glove size would be rounded up to 7 inches.

If the riding gloves you like are offered in universal sizes, refer to the size charts provided here to determine your size.
