Leg Wraps for Shipping
I don't actually know how to do it. Do you do like the quilted pads and then secure them with vetwrap?
What do I need to buy in order to wrap my horses legs?
For shipping use shipping boots.
And if you don't know how to wrap a horse's legs (like with polo wraps), don't wrap them. Wrapping incorrectly can do way more harm to your horse's legs than good, so you should only wrap them if you're absolutely certain you can do it right, which also means being physically taught by someone who can do it right.
I personally don't know too much about using wraps since I don't use them and surely never will, but I'd imagine you'd just purchase polo wraps. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
But again, don't wrap unless you've been taught correctly how to do it.
I dont actually need to wrap, but I need to provide the supplies to the people who do wrap. Like cause my show team coaches will wrap my horse before they bring him to the show. So I just need the physical stuff.
Google Image Result for http://www.horsetackinternational.com/images/245912-comfort-plus-hipping-boots.JPG i would buy something like this, they are easy to put on and take off :)
You really should learn to wrap your horses legs correctly. But if you are shipping, go out to a tack shop and buy shipping boots. They are really easy to learn to use, and aren't as dangerous as Polo Wraps if you wrap them wrong.
I will learn. But its not important that I learn now, what is important now is I buy the supplies.
Pillow wraps and standing bandages :)
Bigger pillow wraps for the hind legs.
How about sport boots? Have to haul my daughter's horses 2 hours in a few weeks. Two hours may not warrant any wrapping, but would it be ok to use the sport boots for the ride?
That said, I don't know why a few people have suggested polos.. In my opinion a polo is not going to handle the shock of legs banging together at that force on the highway. My horse gets wrapped in No Bows and shipping bandages, or he gets booted.
Your horses legs are all you have to stand on! Pretty important to protect them to the best of your ability :-)
