My new gelding came with a wardrobe of leg ware, including a full set of Professional's choice smx(?) boots along with a couple sets of polo wraps (and shipping boots). I assume he has these since he was a show horse, but is there any reason he should be wearing them on the trail and for pleasure riding? I don't think he has worn them in awhile, as his previous owner (who didn't show him) didn't ride him much in the past few years.
Also, how tight are boots and polo wraps supposed to be? All of the videos I have watched online say to make them tight/snug...I wouldn't want to hurt his legs with too tight boots/wraps. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could explain this to me.
