Leg wraps.

Do you wrap your horse's legs for reasons other than showing/competing?

I wrap mine for trips in the trailer and for lunging or turnout. I finally broke down and got some boots for him though. :)

Any time you'd want to protect your horse's legs. Riding (although I don't use polos when riding), trailering, etc. we wrap our horses legs at night when we're at multi-day shows with no-bows and standing wraps. Keeps them from stocking up.

Actually... showing is when I DON"T use wraps. :)

Speaking of wraps, Dixie somehow manages to get knicks and bo-bo's all the time while in her corral and stall (I think she's knicking her own legs when a fly lands). Should we wrap her legs? I don't want to wrap them every day, since it seems excessive, but I am at a loss because we've checked the corral and stalls dozens of times to see what she could possibly be getting cut on, and there's nothing.

How much is TOO much when it comes to wrapping?

If you think it's caused by flies, get fly wraps. They prevent them from landing in the first place.

I would not wrap a horse for turnout. Boot - maybe, but definitely no wraps.

I use polo wraps for trailering. For bigger shows, I use standing wraps and quilted cotton padding after bathing to keep legs white for the night before the show. My fella loves to sprawl out on the ground to sleep, lol. That's basically it. Wrapping is time consuming. I like boots for riding and lunging.

I wrap when trailing and I wrap after shows. I don't like shipping boots, I think they're ugly and I'm shallow like that, haha. Just kidding..

I wrap when trailering. However I don't use polo wraps, but those by Cashel (Cashels Boomers Bandages - Dover Saddlery.). They are absolutely amazing (and very fast to put on)! I tried shipping boots and they didn't work.

Just to clear up, I think some people are confusing wrapping vs polo wraps. I use polo wraps when working my horse, but I use standing wraps after a show and I use standing wraps but make them longer to act as a shipping wrap.

I only wrap for injures (obviously not polo wraps). I dislike polo wraps, they're really on the way out as with the large selection of protective gear, they're pretty much obselete. The only time I use polo wraps is sometimes when lunging young horses that have a tendency to brush themselves.
