What leg wraps to use on my new TB?

Hey guys! I just bought a TB who loves to jump. She's going to be a great project for me; advancing her to higher levels of jumping....no I'm not doing it without a trainer; my friend who rides on the IEA team and my mom's boyfriend who used to jump are helping me.

But what kind of leg wraps should I use? In a tack trunk in the garage I have the kid of thin wraps that have velcro (polo wraps I think they're called)....very thin, I'd think you'd have to have padding under them. What do you guys think? Where can I get the padding? Do I need it?

What you found are standing wraps. Yes, you have to have padding. No, you do not use them for riding. They are for stalling and traveling only!

I recommend cheap boots rather than polos. They offer more protection whereas polos are only for support.

These boots are great, and are a great price! I have two pairs and they last forever

Sounds ilke you might be talking about standing wraps. Polo wraps feel more like thick felt. Standing wraps are very thin and you would use them over no-bows or pillow wraps when they're hauling places or standing in a stall. Personally I hate polos. I think they take too much practice to get right and there's too much of a risk if you don't put them on right. And they don't offer very much protection. I'd much rather use boots like Eskadrons or EquiFits.

Bandages offer support, but do no offer much protection. I mainly use standing wraps if we have a horse that float boots do not fit. Its really important that you know how to bandage correctly, because there are a million ways to get it wrong and only one way to get it right.

You can pick up really cheap jumping boots for around $30-$40 (AUD) a pair. Although they won't be brand names, they will protect your horse's legs.

^Are those the same as the ones you posted from Dover Saddlery or do they serve a different purpose? I'm just price shopping

Thanks for the advice. Of all things I have 20 of, it has to be the polo wraps xD. Btw, what color for a very dark bay? If the idea is to look clean in the show ring....I think a bright color would be kind of intrusive of that ideal haha

Those are virtually the same boot so yep those look good

Hmm... well if you don't want to be obnoxious ( I certainly do! ) maybe a navy blue would look nice!

Okey doke! Lol what size do you think? She's 16hh with average TB cannons

I would say a medium-large. It really does depend on what brand. I've known some TB's to fit a medium, but in most brands she would be a large. The extra-larges are targeted more at WB typey legs then TBs.

My 17hh Warmblood fits in a medium and they are super adjustable. So I'd say Medium

Okay I'll get medium. Maybe I can have my mom by me them for my birthday on Wednesday....:)
