Properly using polos will not cause bowed tendons.

Well I've only had him a year and I used to do his wraps and as far as I knew they were on properly however I now doubt my abilities because I am in no ways a professional. I'll wrap him at my next lesson and ask my trainer to look at them and if she approves, I'll start doing it again.

Thanks.
Anything about my horse though?

Don't need to be a professional to correctly use polos. Just make sure you wrap the tendon in and maintain even pressure as you wrap.

In my opinion he looks dumped over onto his front end in the longing video. I know you said he was just started in the side reins so perhaps this is part of the issue. I would work on getting him to transition from his trot to canter more smoothly as he pulls himself into it instead of lifting himself into it and as a result his canter is pretty discombobulated and stilted. When you are going counter-clockwise with him he even goes into his canter crossfiring, probably because he is going into it unbalanced. I would also work on getting more of an inward arc on the line as it seems as though he is tipping his nose to the outside and popping his ribs to the inside. He does have some nice moments as he is trotting and overall his condition looks better than the first picture you posted in the beginning of the thread but I would still like to see more weight on him.

I agree with you about his canter and we're working on getting him balanced. And yes he needs TONS more weight, glad I'm not the only one that thinks so.

Thank you for the great input! I really appreciate it

well, boots that secure with velcro are better than polos I think... they are fast, easy, fool-proof, and are a dream to clean (unless they have sheepskin, but some horses with sensitive skin need this) you can just put them in a bucket of soapy water and scrub. also brushing boots add lots of more protection than polos.

Yeah I agree, but I definitely will start putting some kind of protection on his legs. I was looking at brush boots for awhile now so I'll definitely buy some in the near future.

Any other input on my horse is very welcome.
