Smile Polo Wraps, why?

I'm Icelandic and I don't use dressage wraps on daily but I wrap my horses with some kind of wraps that I bought when I'm putting them on the trailer. So I wanted to ask, just because I'm curious, why do you put them on your horse before training. How does it help the horse? :)

I'm talking about something like this: Myndaniğurstöğur Google fyrir http://www.dmwarmbloods.com/Sandro_Hit.jpg

Polos are used mainly for protection if the horse were to over reach, step across and hit themselves, ect.

Just going to mention that their true value for protection is questionable. They are very thin fleece wraps so I'm not sure how much they protect the horse's legs, maybe from cuts and scrapes? A lot of people just use them because they look nice, but in theory they are for protection.

I only use them for wrapping my legs when my rheumatism is bad lol! Don't see much protective benefit and my horse has four matching socks so it'd not be for aesthetic reasons.
