Exactly... wrinkles, unevenness, cording, and wrapping the wrong way can all pull against the tendons in a way that causes bowed tendons.
Another reason most don't like to use polo wraps, is because when they get wet they tend to stretch and get heavy, possibly causing the wrap to slide down the horses leg and get caught/tripped/etc.
