I am currently enrolled in an equine science diploma program, and we just recently did a six week class on boots, wraps, etc. What we were taught, was that polo wraps give very little support as they are not engineered anything like proper boots like smbs are. They do provide some protection, but in all reality, imagine the effect of say a back leg accidentally hitting a front leg, sure a polo would cushion it a little but not enough to leave them unharmed. Try wrapping your own calf/shin with a polo and imagine getting hit, and how much protection that would offer.
Before anyone may jump down my throat, just keep in mind this Is just me repeating what I was taught at my school. This is just one persons view on the subject, an I totally respect everyone else's just the same.
