I polo wrap my horse in polo wraps when to help him warm up. I always wrap on the longe and whenever the weather might be chilly.
He works very well in polo wraps. And he's always wrapped if jumping. Or he wears brushing boots


Once he had gone for about a month with no riding. After his lesson he seemed stiff. So he got some liniment and was wrapped in polos. It helped prevent him from going lame at all. THey work wonders

You usually don't unless you're wrapping for an injury. For riding it restricts motion too much and the norm is to wrap slightly below the knee and hock. You also want to ALWAYS wrap the tendon in to prevent bowing it and watch that you aren't wrapping too tight. I always just go the lazy route and use SMBs.
