I wouldn't recommend riding her with a wrap on her knee. Vet wrap could bind, and a spider bandage would be ridiculous. (Its hard enough to get one of those to stay on a horse on stall rest.) Mack has really bad arthritis, and we've managed to keep him moving with joint supplements (I use total joint care- expensive but worth it), and a bute alternative, because he too is picky with the meds, and I don't want him eating bute everyday-- it's bad for their gut. When he was still in regular work, I religiously rubbed his legs with liniment every single day I rode him. I can't prove that it made him more comfortable, but I'll also say that he never complained. Also, longer warm-ups and cool-downs.
