Is it fine for a horse to wear polo wraps during a schooling show?
I am doing some english classes and I usually wrap my mare's legs with polos or boots when riding...would polos be ok for the schooling show? There is no rule about it listed on the flyer....Thanks!
I have done it many times before. Had no probems with the judges with it. Just make sure they are all on coreectly! :)
it should be fine. what kind of show are you competing in?
great! thanks! I didn't want to get disqualified or anything....lol....I haven't done any shows for years O_o :)
Just an open fun schooling show :)
Dressage or hunters, is what I think was meant.
May be a problem in a hunter show.
I've seen people get eliminated from dressage schooling shows for forgetting to take their horse's bell boots, much less polos, off before entering the ring. It would be best to ask the show manager, even though the flyer doesn't say anything.
schooling shows tend to be very relaxed about it though. you tend just to ride the horse in what you would normally, that is the whole idea of them- well it should be anyway.
Oh...I see...no it isnt a hunter show....or a dressage show. Just open english and western schooling. I have a feeling it will be fine,but I will probably find a show manager and ask just to be sure....thanks everyone!
Not trying to hijack Piaffe's thread, but could anyone tell me how to put polo wraps on correctly? I can put them on just fine if I'm wrapping them with quilted wraps underneath for hauling or injury support while on stall rest, but when I put them on by themselves ugh!
I tried by starting at "the top" and working down to the fetlocks and back up, nope. And also by starting in the middle of the cannon bone, down, then back to "the top" like I've seen in magazines and how I do it when there's quilted wraps, nope. I end up with my horse looking like they have big elephant legs. lol. And the mare I have now is big boned (she needs large splint boots in front and, if they make them, XL in back, hehe) and it still looks like a big bulky mess, not the nice streamlined look you see in the magazines.
I don't ride in them like this, I just take them off and figure I have polo wrap ADD. :) Any help? I would like to ride her with something protecting her legs from scrapes and dings, but none of my splint boots fit her (they were originally for my late TB gelding) and I have polo wraps sitting around gathering dust, so until I can get her splint boots or smb's I'd like to try to use them.
