I don't have the hock wraps, but I do use the sheet, no-bows, and the quick wraps. I want to invest in the hock boots and the saddle pad also.
When we haul I haul him in his sheet and no-bows, I also stall him with them both as well. I leave them on until I get ready to saddle, and he LOVES it! I put it on him and his entire demeanor changes and he gets super relaxed.
He bumped his cornet band while playing and came up sore 2 days later after he got shod, and also had a pulled muscle at the time. So I had his sheet and the quick wraps on (they go lower then the no bows). Within a few days the swelling where the pulled muscle was, was almost gone. And he blew an abcess out of his cornet band.
So I am a big believer in the BOT products. Like I said before I use the products before I run and my guy is looser, so if you put them on before you ride I am sure yours will be a little less stiff as well.
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
