Leg Wraps?

My Horse Is doing flying lead changes like in the middle of rounding a corner and it throws his footing all off really bad and in doing that I'm afraid hes' going to damage something. Could legs wraps help to protect him till I find a way to break him of this?

There is no proven scientific fact that polo or "leg" wraps actually support the leg or tendons and unless you have lots of practice and an experienced horseman shows you how to wrap, you can do more damage than good. I recommend splint boots on all four legs. If you want to spend money, SMB Pro boots are nice too.
