Do you know how to wrap your horses leg? You should in case your horse gets hurt.

You Will Need

2.vet wrap
3.standing wrap
4.wound treatment
5.sisors

First, apply wound treatment to the leg. Then apply cotton or gamage roll firmly around the leg. Then over the padding start putting on the vet wrap around the feltlock up the leg and back down. Do the same with standing wraps.

It's important to know the direction in which to wrap the leg, too (as to not do more damage than good with the tendons)

* Legs on the left side of the horse should be wrapped in a counter-clockwise direction

* Legs on the right side of the horse should be wrapped in a clockwise direction

(when you are wrapping, always be sure that you are pulling the wrap tight towards you, not away from you)

This also applies to polo wraps, standing wraps, splint boots, etc :)

Also, here's a great link on how to apply polo wraps (please excuse the poor shoeing job on the second horse):

Meep. I'm the only one who doesn't know? I've never done it before, never needed to.... I guess that's why I never knew.
