polo wraps are fantastic support for horses and mold better than boots to the horses legs.
they are designed, and do a wonderful job, of providing extra support for tendons, my horses when shes a bit swollen (previous minor tendon injuries), prefer to use polo wraps than boots, they support her and after the ride all the swelling is gone

I use them every time I ride except at shows because my horse is 3 and her legs are still developing.

Sometimes I use them, other times I don't.
It's soo fun 'cause they come in different colors though, LOL! I have baby blue, green, & I think some red.

Ride more, worry less.

Yes, I sometimes use polos for riding. But usually only if I'm not in a big rush and I feel like spending some extra time because wrapping all four legs every single day is a lot, for me. Usually I just throw some boots on the horse.

Yes, I use them everytime I ride and it gets so old because I end up wraping like 20 legs a day, but my trainer is very polo-oriented.

I use them if my horses boots are dirty. He has a neoprene allergy so they are great if I don't have his special boots around.

I always put protective leg wear on my horses. The one mare I have will have to settle with polo wraps. I don't think I will ever find a size that fits her.
