No Bow and Standing Wraps
So saturday we jumped pretty big and my boy was VERY good for me. My trainer told me "for days like this you need some No Bow and Standing Wraps". so i went to the tack store that day and bought those two items... however... here's my issue:
The young woman behind the counter said: "buy some liniment and dilute it down. rub that on his legs, then wrap them up. leave it on for about 15 mins, and then wash it all off."
Then, after speaking with my trainer, she advised me to just wrap his legs "dry" and leave the no bows and the standings on over night.
so here i am, confused as usual!
What do you folks do with your horses regarding the no bows and the standing wraps?? wet or dry?? liniment gel or liquid??
what is liniment for anyway!?? (can it really ACTUALLY burn your horses legs if you leave it on??)
everyone seems to have very different opinions on how and why to use this type of stuff.
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
