Cannot wrap hind legs?

Show season is coming up, and I have a mare who does not like having her hind legs bandaged overnight, but she is 14 this year and we are showing on grass, and I want to keep her in tip top shape and super happy!

Any suggestions on how to train her to get used to it, or anything that I can do instead that doesnt upset her?

Just do it, she'll deal. I had to wrap/boot my gelding's hind feet because he had hind shoes and knicked himself with the nails (before I got him shod myself). He had no problem with me putting them on, but as soon as I walked away, he started kicking out trying to get them off. I thought it was hilarious, lol. I let him stand there for awhile to get over it, lunged him real quick to see if he'd throw a bronc fit, and hopped on. He did went from kicking, to picking his feet up high, to nothing, lol.

You can put a piece of duct tape over the velcro so they don't come undone. I would also suggest spraying the wrap with some type of anti chew solution so the horse does not try to grab them with its teeth.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office
