Should I wrap his legs?

Im taking my horses on a 6 hour trailer ride tomorrow and was wondering if I should wrap their legs when doing this? And what are the exact types of wraps I should use, I believe I only have standing wraps right now, as seen in the picture below.


Let me know guys!! Thanks!!

I probably would, just to provide a little extra tendon support. I also like to free haul my horses so they can adjust themselves and balance as necessary but unless your horse is used to that I probably wouldn't do that this time. The standing wraps will add a little more support for the long journey

If it was me I'd be putting them in travel boots like these:

I'm a worry-wart though :P

I would wrap them, just to be safe. I also would get wraps that cover more just in case something was to happen. I've learned that hard way. I've always wrapped my horses legs. But I didn't this one time and I had to end up putting y horse down. I'm not going into detail. But I wrap to be safe.
