Thanks for sharing, I have never used polo wraps before. This is useful for when I buy some.

I thought you were supposed to go under the feltock and creat that "V" to support it?

^That's how I do it, but I suppose there's multiple ways to do it.

It is done that way sometimes, it's a question of preference. Does someone know what are the advantages/disadvantages between the two ways of doing it?

the "V" supports both the joint and the tendon. Not sure of the other way???

There are multiple ways. I was taught to start with a length of polo wrap down the back of the tendon and wrap over it to protect the tendon.

I found this very useful...we are putting polo wraps on for decoration in our 4th of July parade and we had no clue how to do it!

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I couldn't watch the video, but a dressage trainer told me "tendons in". You tighten around the bone so you can't bruise the tendons.
