If anyone is unsure the best thing to do is go and look it up on youtube.
This seem acurate enough
as I said its hard to explain the exact position of where they should be

As does this.

Make sure your horse is standing square before you begin, then start the polo wrap just under the horse’s knee. Place the wrap edge on the inside of the leg. When wrapping a right leg, wrap in a clockwise direction; for a left leg, wrap in a counter clockwise direction.
Wrap twice around the top of the leg and begin angling downward.
Sling the wrap under the fetlock, applying slightly more tension for added support.
There will be a slight gap at that top of the wrap as you sling the fetlock, that’s ok.
When you come back around the leg, angle the wrap upward to create an inverted V on the front of the leg as shown; continue using slightly more tension.
Wrap the fetlock twice around, by repeating steps 3 through 5.
Begin wrapping upward at a slight angle; as you near the top, decrease the tension slightly.
The end result! Notice how the wrap overlaps itself evenly down the leg. Also, while it’s preferable to have the Velcro closure end up on the outside of the leg as shown, it’s not imperative.




Many trainers, many differences, question is do you use bell boots? If you do then stopping halfway is correct. We don't so this is the way my trainer taught me

yes most of the time overeach boots are used. There is the odd ocasion that I don't but most days I do. Those steps are pretty much the way I do it.. just a little different.it also depends on the bandages length. I agree that different people have different ways so it is personal preferance I believe.

I also prefer to put wraps underneath for more even pressure and to help stop the bandages slipping

Thanks for helping clear that up golden horse:)!

Edited to add: sorry -- my post is not timely. Disregard please. Except for that the pictures ARE nice.
