<====== I'd say get sports boots instead.. Polo wraps look cool but have minimal protection really :)

I have them for light work. I am getting sports boots whenever we can get them. With money focused on vets and feed it's difficult to find a spare $150 for sports boots. I just want polos for some support during trotting exercises and loping circles.

IMO if you aren't quite sure how to apply polos properly, its best to just leave them off completely. Otherwise you run the risk of the horse bowing a tendon from incorrect pressure. I had to have my trainer show me at least 3 times how to get them applied just right and even then I worried about doing it wrong xD

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I know how to wrap them correctly. They just seem to big on her legs, and it doesn't help that I'm a bit OCD because it bothers me so much, I sit there and rewrap her legs until they're just right.
