Alot of eventers will Aldo wrap their horse's XC boots with it or over pads for xc boots.(of course taped up after that). We use it all the time. It's always good to have a
Roll of wrapping Cotten and vetwrap in your tack trunk!

I love the reference to duct tape...never thought of it like that before but we sure do use it like that! My friend goes through atleast a roll a week on herself. She has weak ankles and uses this for extra support under her socks and boots. Less bulky than a brace!

Please have someone experienced show you how to use it before you wrap your horse in it. You can do more damage than good with it VERY easily. It is stretchy enough that making a bandage bow is much too easy.

There are much cheaper things to braid into a tail if you are just looking for color. I can not imagine using vet wrap that way.

It is one of the very few items that the human version costs more than the horse version.

You can also use wrap it on horse hooves if there is an injury.

"Vetrap" is a brand name and is more expensive than other brands out there. "Vet Wrap" is what we all call it generically! (like Kleenex or Q-Tips!)

Other brands will work just as well, and they will cost less, too! You can buy them in bulk. Horse Supplies USA and Farm Supplies from FarmingSuppliesDirect are two sites that will sell them in bulk :)
