Wraps while trailering

Ok, this is not a debate as to whether or not to wrap while trailering. I have decided I am going to wrap since it will be a several hour trailer ride. So what type of wraps should I use? I only have experience with polo wraps so I will have someone who knows how to wrap helping me. Would I do standing wraps?

You will most likely want to buy a set of "no bows" or "quilted pillow wraps" and standing/shipping bandages to gover top of those.



Or you can always buy shipping boots which are much easier to apply.

Thanks, I was already thinking I should get the quilted pillow wraps and then do standing bandages over that. And I would prefer to use shipping boots, but he will kick off the back ones no matter what I do or how well they fit but he does well with wraps. Thanks!

I like to add bell boots as they protect the coronets from accidentally being stepped during unplanned stops/swerves as the horse rebalances itself.

You could make a pair of quilts pretty easily yourself. Might save a bit of money. Just get the dimensions of them and go to the fabric store to get some material and fluff and DIY. If you don't already have acces to the quilts.

While this isn't a bad idea persay, be VERY careful and don't do it unless you are an accomplished sew-er. Any lumps or bumps or drifting fluff would not be good.
My trainer uses polo's for trailering but that doesn't sound like a good idea for a ride of any distance. I would probably go with standing wraps if I were you.

So sounds like standing wraps it is, it's almost a 5 hr trailer ride so I wouldn't really trust polo wraps, even though I am quite good at wrapping them.
