I am going to start my 2 year old (three in spring) under saddle soon and was wondering if I should use leg wraps on his front legs. I don't have a nice flat arena or round pen to work in unfortunately. Just three or so acres of fenced, rather hillish ground, and I'm a bit worried about the stress it would put on his legs.
He is a Missouri Fox Trotter, are wraps not to be used on gaited?
I was also wondering if they should be used on my nine year old, whom will also be ridden on the same ground.
