Unique gloves with an innovative band proven to help riders of all levels to achieve a correct hand position and refine their rein contact.


To achieve correct contact through the reins is one of the most difficult tasks a rider has to learn, and one that even experienced riders are continually working to improve.

SteadyHands gloves are a breakthrough tool that makes it easier for riders to achieve a soft, elastic and consistent contact.


SteadyHands gloves are based on the latest scientific understanding of resistance training and biomechanics principles.

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!

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

Band: Nylon

Machine wash at 30°C. Avoid fabric softeners, tumble dryers and contact with solvents.

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

SteadyHands Riding Gloves

How does SteadyHands work to improve my hand position?

SteadyHands is based on resistance training principles. As a rider, like any athlete, you have to engage the right muscles in order to perform. By providing immediate kinesthetic feedback, SteadyHands helps you to understand how to engage your upper and lower arms, as well as how to align your wrists and fingers. Thanks to that same feedback, repeated use builds new neural pathways quicker than without SteadyHands.

What level of riders can use SteadyHands gloves?

Riders from beginner level all the way to Grand Prix have told us that they feel that SteadyHands has been a great training tool for them.

Beginners will get to experience what constitutes a correct hand position without having to spend 1000's of hours in a trial and error process, drastically accelerating their riding ability.  

Experienced riders are able to use SteadyHands to experiment with small changes in hand position while getting immediate kinesthetic feedback. At the top level, those minute changes can make all the difference between a good performance and a great one.

Won't I become reliant on SteadyHands?

Not at all! SteadyHands is designed to build new neural pathways(in other words, habits). It is a tool to use as you learn a better hand position and contact, not a crutch to mask poor position! You will probably find that you will use SteadyHands for a couple of months at the beginning while you work on improving your position, then you might put them away and pick them up here and there for a refresher, or if you get a new horse, or you are learning a difficult movement and your body is reverting to poor habits.

Will SteadyHands restrict my contact?

To a certain extent, SteadyHands restricts your ability to move your hands - that's why it works! However, good contact does not require sweeping hand movements (except on very green horses, and we do not recommend using SteadyHands then). You will learn just how little you can do with your hands to obtain the same effect, and that your fingers are able to send clear signals while your hands stay steady. SteadyHands may feel a little restrictive at first, but the benefits you will get by pushing through that feeling are worth it!

How safe are SteadyHands riding gloves?

SteadyHands gloves are very safe. The gloves have been designed with safety at the forefront of the development process. The connecting strap is equipped with 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.

Who designed SteadyHands riding gloves?

SteadyHands was designed by accredited dressage coach and rider Clara Mehel. Clara is always looking for better solutions to riding problems and wanted to find a way to help her students to actually feel correct contact and hand position.

She worked with sports scientists to understand resistance training principles and kinesthetic feedback, and this led to the first prototype of SteadyHands, which made such a difference to her students that she knew she had to make it available to more riders. 

Where are SteadyHands made and shipped from?

SteadyHands are designed in Australia, made by our partner factory in Pakistan, and assembled and packaged in Brisbane, Australia.
