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 fine..it 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.
