they have give like polos though, just not elastic, and last time i checked polos dont stretch THAT much, nor have elastic in the... thats why im not understanding..they are just a thinner material..


Quote:
fact that they have NO elasticity or "give" to them like polos and real track bandages, when you do exercise in them its not going to allow the leg to flex properly and will cause cording or bandage bowing.
and if that were the case race horses woulden't wear them. i guess it would depend on the type they would use.

These are not actual track bandages though... They're more like bandages for standing wraps..... Race horses use actual track wraps which ARE elastic and have give.

Idk im just not getting it. she moved the same. didnt bow anything, they form to her legs nicley. same width and length as polos. they would never ever fit around pillow wraps either. my actual standing bandages are double the width AND length.

in my entire life ive never once bandage bowed a horse.. i worked at the num 1 dressage barn here on the island and was tought how to wrap.. i wrapped top dressage horses legs... i wrapped 10 horses a day.. these rich ppl paid $1200 board... and with that you get a tack up service when ever you want to ride..

im just not grasping why theres such a diff. just bc the material is a tiny bit thinner.

:roll:

i dont need to know what you get paid to do what or you think your poop dont stink because of who you work for..... its all BS to me. ive seen people pay $650 a month for boarding and its no better than my $275 a month. just because its "prettier". $$ means nothing to me. ive seen amazing grooms be paid peanuts and lousy ones paid more just because they got lucky enough for a richer stable to take them on.... it means nothing....

ive wraps upwards of 30 horses a day hun. and to tell you the truth, if you cant tell me the difference between different wraps, you SHOULDNT be wrapping horses.

material has EVERYTHING to do with what its going to do to a horses legs. you dont just walk up and cut a t-shirt in strips and wrap it around a leg and call it a wrap do you?! no. wraps are designed for certain purposes.

if there IS NO ELASTICITY it WILL CORD OR BANDAGE BOW A HORSE DURING EXERCISE!!!!! im not saying its going to happen the first or second time you do it, but that one time it will... and youre going to have to deal with it... not me.
