From Endurance to Dressage
Roeckl Gloves - Giveaway
There are so many glove choices out there, but since I started riding in Roeckls more than six years ago, I haven't ridden in anything else. I know they're a wee bit pricey, but they are worth every penny. Just as an aside, Riding Warehouse is having a 20% off everything sale through today, so if you want a pair of Roeckls RIGHT NOW, you can get them for $39.96.
Besides the cute color combinations - I've had the navy with white (twice) and the black with brown, I love how they actually feel like skin. My skin. Once they're on, I completely forget that I'm wearing them. I can wear these all year long, too, even in our brutal summer heat. They're breathable, and they stay flexible even after washing. Oh, yeah, I throw these in the washing machine (air dry though), and they come out like brand new.
I've owned 6 pairs of Roeckls over the years; I even have a white pair for showing. My every day pair is navy with white piping, but I've been lusting after a pair of black with red piping. Guess what showed up in my mailbox the other day?
Since I am such a fan of these gloves, a Roeckl rep contacted me recently and asked if I would do a giveaway. Are you kidding? Of course! I love these gloves and am happy to share the love!
I rarely do giveaways, I think I've done two?, but this company makes a product that I truly love, so I am happy to spread the word. Since I don't do complicated, the rules for this giveaway are pretty simple.
1) The giveaway will run between now and Friday, September 7th.
2) Head over to Facebook and "Like" their page - Roeckl Equestrian.
3) Comment below and share whether or not you've owned a pair of Roeckl gloves (it won't affect your eligibility if you already love them). If you have, what did you like about them? If you haven't, why not?
4) Leave your email in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. No one else can see your email address.
5) Since I like simple, over the weekend, I'll write everyone's name down on a slip of paper and have my husband pull two names out of a hat (or whatever I find laying around).

I have several pair myself

Have never heard of Roeckl, but since I am now an avid rider, who wouldn’t want some of these?! :)
9/3/2018 08:40:25 am
I've never owned a pair. I imagine they'd make awesome driving gloves!
I do not have a pair, but would love to try them. I really like the color combinations!
9/3/2018 09:01:37 am
I currently do not own a pair, but would love to win a pair. I think the color combinations are great!

I’m getting back into riding after a long absence and am slowly relearning what are the best and newer pieces of tack and equipment. I hope I win, I need gloves and these look awesome!
9/3/2018 11:52:46 am
Once I started riding in these gloves, I never went back! I LOVE THEM.

My only experience with gloves in Germany was with a pair of Steeds and they disintegrated after one season. Roeckl is the way to go. But I don't use facebook so I cannot win *pout*
9/3/2018 02:01:35 pm
I've never owned a pair because they're just a bit too pricey for me. They do look pretty fancy though!
9/3/2018 02:05:20 pm
Roeckl's are my favorite gloves! Is it even possible to have all the colors? I'd like to try to find out...
9/3/2018 03:12:04 pm
I haven't owned a pair before, but I would love to try them out!
9/3/2018 04:05:10 pm
Oooooooo! And I was just wishing for a pair of gloves to save my hands from any more sun damage... 😍
9/3/2018 05:26:13 pm
I’ve ridden exclusively in Roeckls for years. I’ve unfortunately had a bad run of luck lately with multiple new pairs falling apart right away and had no luck with their customer service
9/3/2018 06:24:33 pm
Would love to try them
9/3/2018 06:57:54 pm
I have never owned these gloves, but would love to try them😊
9/3/2018 08:55:31 pm
I have never owned these gloves, but I like free stuff!
9/3/2018 10:18:14 pm
I am using them for the first time and love them! I enjoy the lack of bulk and how comfortable they are. I finally bit the bullet and bought a pair and there's no going back to the other brands now.
9/4/2018 06:45:04 am
I don't even know how many pairs of Roeckl gloves I've owned at this point but I love them! My favorites are some navy and gray argyle mesh back ones I got a couple years ago because they combine my favorite colors. Roeckl gloves last a long time and wash up well so they are always my first choice.
9/4/2018 08:24:43 am
I really wanted a pair since they do not slide on web reins, but I could not justify paying the higher price. Love the feel though.
9/4/2018 11:31:58 am
I had a pair that felt like a second skin - they were wonderful and now I use them for schooling. Would love a pair for showing!
9/4/2018 12:02:21 pm
I absolutely adore my Roeckls! Every ride, no exceptions. Feels like a second skin, even when wet/sweaty - an absolute staple in my tack box.
9/4/2018 06:13:28 pm
I'd love to try them -- I have yet to find gloves that are long wearing for my all-day events! I especially need some warm-weather weight gloves.
9/4/2018 07:41:03 pm
I had a pair of Roeckls and I LOVVVED them so much... unfortunately they got lost after a clinic and I haven't been able to find them :( This is such an awesome give-away!
9/4/2018 08:04:08 pm
I love roeckl gloves! My trainer introduced me at 2016 CDS champ show and I still have the same gloves! They last forever! And they are the best gloves for XC too, they never slip! Great giveaway Karen!!
9/5/2018 07:58:52 am
I have not owned a pair of riding gloves in years because I have just been lazy, lol!!! BUT, I would LOVE to win a new pair of gloves!
9/5/2018 12:16:13 pm
I love their gloves! They fit great with the half size option and there are so many styles to choose from.
9/5/2018 01:31:04 pm
I've never had a pair. I keep on meaning to buy some but there's always something else that takes priority.
9/5/2018 03:49:38 pm
I love my roeckl’s so much I tend to go through a pair or two a year. But I may wear them out year round.
9/7/2018 06:09:25 am
I don't have a pair of Roeckl's, I usually go for whatever is on the clearance rack, lol! I have tried them on though, they seem like super nice gloves and I'd love to have a pair.
