Trailer Wraps: How?

Just thought I'd ask what everyone does to protect their horses legs in the trailer. My horse always manages to scrape his legs up in the trailer and I wanted to get your opinons on what to wrap them with! I use SMB's when I run and I don't know how to wrap polos or anything else. So videos/links with how to do it as well would be great! Thanks!

I use No Bows and Standing Wraps for my horses when hauling.....mine also get Soft Rides (my personal preference).

This is a good video that shows how to wrap....

Here is a picture of the boys wrapped...

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I love the bright orange standing wraps! Your horses are both gorgeous boys.

Anyways, I also use no bows and standing wraps when we haul long distances(pretty much anything over half and hour.)

I use them when hauling to help absorb some of the shock on the rough roads we have to drive over. I also use them when they are stalled or tied standing to the trailer for long periods. It helps keep them cushioned on the hard ground. Kinda like if you had some flat dress shoes and had to stand around all day on hard floors....wouldn't you rather stand around in a pair of comfy Tennies?

I use Tolklat shipping boots, I used to wrap but like the convenience of Velcro closures.

Ok! That's what I thought! I might have to look them up to try out! We are going to more rodeos now and I really want to do all I can to keep my horses sound. Thank again! Btw, I LOVE your horses! They are so big!
