^True. Polo's don't support the legs at all, they're just there for protection. While I abhor SMB's for my own personal reasons, I use boots when I ride too. Neoprene (What SMB's, Woof boots, and a lot of brushing boots are made out of) has been proven to absorb shock when the horse's leg hits the ground. Therefore, if you are looking for support, gets some boots like Woof Boots, SMB's if that's your thing, or just basic splint boots. Also, polo wraps can and will unravel if they get wet or if they aren't wrapped properly, so they should only be used when doing flatwork.
