FAQs

How safe are SteadyHands Riding Gloves?

SteadyHands 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 hands being constrained if your horse spooks or plays up - SafetyHands will release quickly without having to think about it.

How They Work

SteadyHands gloves are the result of the application of athletic principles 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.

You have to feel it to understand how incredibly effective it is!

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, your improved hand position and contact feel will become the "new normal".

Safety is assured through the quick-release clip, so your hands are always free to move if needed.

You should recommend bigger sizes. I wear 7, but S as you recommend ist too small. It is very Bad for us in Germany since returning the Gloves back to Australia is Not sustainable and expensive for us. So I have to keep expensive gloves that Are Not usable for me.

Steady hands riding gloves

Love how they gloves fit and that you are able to adjust how close or far apart hands can be when riding. The quick snap release is a great part of the gloves.

It wasn’t clear when buying the gloves that because they are coming from Australia there was a large import duty/ tax into Europe €17 approx on to the price . I feel fur ryenoricenof the gloves there should be two straps supplied , one longer one to alllw riders become accustomed to them and one as supplied

SteadyHands Riding Gloves

Contact problems?

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

For beginner riders

SteadyHands will guide the hands in the right position and produce a more independent hand through encouraging better balance.

Beginner riders will form correct habits from the start, and won't have to work hard later to fix a poor hand position.

The SteadyHands safety clip will release easily if needed.

For intermediate riders

This is the time when riders can struggle the most with getting their horse "on the bit".

SteadyHands helps enormously at this time, as it gives riders the chance to experience what a following, consistent and forward-feeling contact can feel like.

For advanced riders

SteadyHands can be used to make subtle changes in the engagement of forearm and upperarm muscles, as well as wrist position, in order to refine the rein contact to its optimum.

At the highest levels, every single mark matters, and those small changes can make huge improvements to performance.

Can something so simple actually work?

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective ones. In the past decade, our understanding of how athletes learn and develop muscles through kinesthetic and resistance aids has greatly improved.
