    I never knew that, I always just thought that you kept the "tail" of the wrap towards the tail of the horse.. or so I was taught. I'll remember that though, I definitely don't want to create any issues. I rub her legs with liniment before and after each ride so hopefully that helps too. :)

    Some people believe that no matter how you wrap a polo, it'll never hurt the horse. I was always taught the tendon-in thing to prevent injury, though...and I don't want to attempt the other way just in case.

    I was having an issue learning this so my instructor told me to visualize a stream running through the horse's legs, from back to front (tail to head). When you wrap the polos, you want to go in the direction of the stream. From the back of the tendon and in through the horse's legs towards the head, like a fish swimming in the stream. This pulls the tendon to the inside.


    Heres a little video. Do you see how the polo goes in through the back of the leg and exits the front?

    There are several ways to "properly" wrap a polo. I prefer the velcro be at the top, so you have an even wrap. And I don't use the little flap like the video shows, but you can if you want.

    Thanks, Copperhead! That video will help a lot.. I didn't quite get my instructor's explanation of it but I think I'll do much better next time I'm down. I went down again this morning and she said they were better but still not great.. so if I'm lucky enough to go down tomorrow, then I'll make sure they're perfect! :)

    What a pretty girl, congratulations, but I can't believe you took a pair of scissors to her mane

    Thanks! And yeah, I've just gotten quite used to the look of a trimmed mane at my barn. I didn't cut it too short (it was actually longer than it first appeared), so I think I could still do a running braid.. but I'll probably grow it out a bit more and just keep the edges trimmed. :)

    Polos take a ton of practice. I wrapped them at least 3 times every day and I think I finally got it down by the time 3 weeks went by. Its kind of like an art form lol I don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing pictures of her!

    I'll definitely keep posting them.. I would just like to transport the barn into my backyard, I wanna be there everyday! I worry too much about her legs though, ever since my instructor's comments. They get kind of swelled up if she's in her stall too long.. so I wish my instructor would put her out in the pasture instead of keeping her in her stall. I hope she just puts her in the pasture next to the mares' for the first few days though.. even though I was told by the seller and the vet that Indie is a pretty submissive mare so she usually isn't one to argue with the others.

    I love her though! :)
