bandaging a fetlock for exercise

Im about to start riding my horse again who has just recoverd from a fetlock injury when I begin riding the vet said to bandage it we have exercise bandages but im not sure how to bandage his leg so that it does not restrict his movement. Exercise bandages generally stop above the fetlock. Is it possible to bandage like that or do I need special bandages??? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Where is the injury located on the fetlock?? If it is below it you can wrap the bandage around the bottom of the fetlock and exercise your horse as long as the exercise isnt to extreme. If you know what sport boots look like wrap the bandage so they look like a boot.

We have thought about doing it like a sports boot. It was an injury to the joint as far as we know it may have been a tendon or ligament it couldn't be confirmed unless we had an ultrasound or x-ray

Then I would just wrap it like a sport boot just make sure its not really tight you just want it snug. I do it when I want the horse to sweat their fetlocks like after they stock up from standing or an injury. Hope this helped
