Not trying to hijack Piaffe's thread, but could anyone tell me how to put polo wraps on correctly? I can put them on just fine if I'm wrapping them with quilted wraps underneath for hauling or injury support while on stall rest, but when I put them on by themselves ugh!
I tried by starting at "the top" and working down to the fetlocks and back up, nope. And also by starting in the middle of the cannon bone, down, then back to "the top" like I've seen in magazines and how I do it when there's quilted wraps, nope. I end up with my horse looking like they have big elephant legs. lol. And the mare I have now is big boned (she needs large splint boots in front and, if they make them, XL in back, hehe) and it still looks like a big bulky mess, not the nice streamlined look you see in the magazines.
I don't ride in them like this, I just take them off and figure I have polo wrap ADD. :) Any help? I would like to ride her with something protecting her legs from scrapes and dings, but none of my splint boots fit her (they were originally for my late TB gelding) and I have polo wraps sitting around gathering dust, so until I can get her splint boots or smb's I'd like to try to use them.
