Are you sure about that...? Because several people are telling you that they are NOT the same as actual track bandages.... I had never known horse.com to carry anything but polo and bandage wraps and to my understanding track wraps were always elastic... Personally i'd air on the side of caution and NOT ride in them...

mind you, I have not read most of the thread so...

I prefer nylon wraps to cotton or any other fabric. It stays cleaner, it stays in place better, and I just like them better

lol did you look at the link i posted from horse.com which is where i got them from.... they are track bandages. maybe not all of them come with elastic wich when i did a search , thats what i found. they dont all come with elastic. they are thin material, and are the same length and width of all of my fleece polos. these actually stay in place pretty nice.
these are the polos i have
http://www.horse.com/Polo-Wraps-(4-Pack)-BHV10.html

i have them in a gazillion colors. but thats besides the point. the track bandages are 3.4 wider than the polos to be exsact. and about 1/2 the width of my standing stable wraps.

Yeah, I looked at the link, and I have similar ones to those. They are NOT for riding in, just for standing wraps... A simple phrase can have a wide variety of meaning, so judging by the material you said they were made out of, their not the kind for riding in..

Why ask then argue with the people who try to help you?

I agree they look like standing wraps. I'd stick with polos.

BP - Track bandages ARE elastic. If what you are riding in is not, then they should only be used OVER a quilted/pillow wrap (for stall/trailering use only). I have 'stall' bandages that can look like a track bandage, but once you feel there is NO give I know it's a stall bandage and to be used as only that, over quilts.

they are to be used over quilt or pillow wraps. the difference is a lot. the fabric IS why they are different. polos are fleece, they will absorb some of the shock if a horse knocks into that leg, and they provide some protection to any injury such as cuts from the other hooves and such.

these bandages you have will first off cord a horse easily of you do not have wraps under them and due to the fact that they have NO elasticity or "give" to them like polos and real track bandages, when you do exercise in them its not going to allow the leg to flex properly and will cause cording or bandage bowing.

JUST because it says theyre track bandages does not mean thats what they truley are.

I still dont get how it will cord a horse.. if they are put on correctly, same as polos , wich can bow a horse if applied too tight or incorrectly wraped... I dont know, im just not understanding the diffrence just b.c the matieral is thinner.

THAT is how they will cord a horse.
