Junior SteadyHands Riding Gloves
The same benefits of our best-selling SteadyHands gloves for junior riders aged 4 to 12.
By request from parents and coaches who love our SteadyHands gloves and want to see junior riders benefit from the same riding tool, we are proud to offer Junior SteadyHands.
Junior riders can now develop good hand and position habits right from the start, and feel how a quiet, following contact can be achieved.
Available in navy with a pink band, the beautiful navy gloves feature buttery soft, grippy neo-leather with a stretch panel over the knuckles for comfort and performance.
Safety is always our priority, and even more so when it comes to our precious junior riders! The SteadyHands Junior Riding Gloves feature our unique quick-release centre clip, which comes apart easily from any sudden or jerky hand movement, but otherwise stays put.
The Junior SteadyHands gloves are also equipped with velcro attachment to the gloves, which will come apart under pressure, as an added point of safety.
Have a look at our video to see how easily the band comes apart at all paces!
With these safety features, young riders can concentrate on learning the best hand position and contact, without having to worry about their hands being restricted in an emergency.
One of the hardest things for riders of all ages to learn is how to achieve correct rein contact. Whether it is learning how to follow their horse's mouth or get their horse "on the bit", it's important for young riders to get it right from the start!
SteadyHands Riding Gloves are a proven tool that has helped riders from all over the world understand how to achieve a softer, more elastic and more consistent contact.
How safe are SteadyHands Riding Gloves?
SteadyHands Junior Riding Gloves are very safe, as they have a centre release clip which comes apart easily with any fast or sudden movement from the rider or the horse. You do not have to worry about your little rider's hands being constrained if their horse plays up or they simply lose their balance - SafetyHands will release quickly without them having to think about it.

How They Work
Junior SteadyHands gloves apply the same scientific principles as our best-selling SteadyHands gloves, including proprioception (body awareness), resistance training and biomechanics.
The unique positioning of the SteadyHands band across the gloves is the key that allows riders to feel how to correctly engage the upper and lower arm muscles, as well as wrists and fingers.
The feedback and reviews of hundreds of riders and coaches all over the world is definitive - SteadyHands riding gloves really make a difference to hand position and contact.
With regular use, riders' improved hand position and contact feel becomes the "new normal", and sets them up with good habits for life.
Safety is assured through the quick-release clip, so riders' hands are always free to move apart if needed or with a loss of balance.

All our products, including gloves, are warranted for 12 months. Contact us if they fail at any point during that time, and we will replace them free of charge.
We stand behind our products because we know they really do help riders. That's why we're happy to buy them back from you at full price if after contacting us for guidance, you still don't feel that they are helping you to progress as a rider.
We ship worldwide! We don't believe riders should miss out based on where they live.
Super service. Rien à dire je recommande
Thank you Nathalie, very glad to help!
My daughter loves these gloves and calls them her magic gloves. They have made such a difference and she now realises how much hers hands did actually move around… because she never believed mum😂😂
I bought my daughter a pair of these as mine have been so amazing to improve my contact. It's really helping her. A little narrow fit so I'd recommend buying size up. xo
Very helpful product for young riders. I use them in my riding school on intermediate riders learning contact. Definitely helps to safeguard my school horses mouths! Recommend 10/10.
I was a little bit worried how easily they would come apart but even my 8yo can pop them open if she needs. Super cute design! Has helped her a lot with making her hands quieter.
SteadyHands Gloves help with the following issues:
Fiddling with the reins
- Provides increased awareness of hand movements
- The resistance bands limits the range of hand movement
"Pram"/"piano"/downwards facing hands
- Engages arm, shoulder and back muscles to correct this common fault
- Use regularly to overcome the habit
Hands too wide
- The band limits how wide apart the hands can be held
- Builds new muscle memory of correct distance
Hands too low
- Encourages bent elbows which leads to better hand carriage
- Usually goes hand in hand with hands too wide
Overreliance on reins
- Limits/brings awareness to use of the reins
- Invites rider to use legs and/or seat instead
Hands moving around too much
- Gives significantly greater awareness of hand movements
- Engages the correct muscles to keep hands more steady
Hands not working as a pair
- The band linking the hands together acts as a "bridge"
- Develops mind-body connection of the feeling of each hand individually and as a pair
