Do you polo wrap while training?

The title explains my questions If you do, why? If you don't, why? I'm trying to decide if I should or not.

I used to all the time, but now I use boots instead. Polos take too much time and they really provide almost zero protection or support.

I use boots, especially if we are working circles in round pen.

Nope.

That wrap comes loose and you have a major trip hazard. On trail they collect burrs, twigs, etc.

Typically only use them for long distance shipping - with quilt wraps for support.

I use boots if I am doing something very strenuous, otherwise I leave him with nekkid legs.

Polos come loose and if you do not know how to wrap them correctly can cause harm. I don't really like them for shipping (But I don't like any boots for shipping so no surprise there) because I am always worried that they will come loose during the trip and be tangled around the horses legs. Don't know if this will really happen, but I have seen some shippers that ask that there be no wraps so maybe it does?

Nope, except when I was teaching them to jump. Then I used SMB's.

I will once in a while put boots on my guy if we are doing poll or jump work, otherwise he goes nakkie.

I have heard too many horror stories with polos to ever want to use them.
