We don't want our horses to look like Saddlebreds with knees snapping up every stride, every gait. We need them to come in and out of "higher knee action" movements easily, and we don't want them flinging their legs about at the canter. I can't see how soring would enhance a dressage horse's gait, especially since soring is something that has to be done consistently to get results.
No leg, no dressage horse.
In addition, one can't compete with wraps on - I'm relatively sure that's been a rule for a long time, so it can't have been used in the ring. Beyond that.... what sort of wrap intensifies pressure (without blowing tendons) and releases when the leg is off the ground?
