polo wraps

  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My new horse needs to wear smb's or Polo's. My questions is what is best for barrel racing; Professional choice/ classic equine smb's or polo wraps? My horse has some tendon problems so any hard ground is not an easy walk, but grass or a nice sanded area is perfect. She also broke a bone in her...
  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi! I'm new on this forum, so this is my first post. I am from Norway, and I keep wondering about how you do stuff in other countries, f. ex. how you use polo wraps. I have a fjord mare myself, and I use polo wraps that are combined, half fleece and half stretch fabric. I think this gives a...
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I know this is kind of silly but I've never bought polo wraps before and I just want to be sure before I spend $20 lol. So in the description for a pair of Ovation Climate Control Wraps, it says "Set of 2 wraps". How many wraps are in a set? Does that mean I'll get 8 wraps total or only 2? I am...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have several different opinions coming at me about polo wraps; one trainer swears by them, refuses to let her horses out without wearing a set. She believes that they support and help prevent injury. I can see this being true in the sense that if a horse is moving extravagantly, there is a...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Ok so I'm wondering what is best to use one is wayyyyy more expensive than the other. Does it depend on the horse sport you do on which you should use polo or boots? Should I get them for all four feet? I am going to be barrel racing n pole bending etc. Rodeo stuff like that n wondering if...
  6. Horse Grooming
    I have a 13 year old Gypsy Vanner Gelding with LOTS of feathering. I use him for driving, but we also trail ride often. I am wondering if you have any suggestions or ideas about keeping his feathering clean when we trail ride? We live in an area with lots of sand burs, and other things which are...
  7. Jumping
    Hey, I've heard a few times that jumping in polos is dangerous. I most definitely agree, if they're improperly wrapped or hindering the movement of the fetlock joint. It's silly and I do it just to make myself feel better, but I enjoy wrapping all four of my mare's legs in polos in cold...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I was wondering if anyone knew where to get cute polo wraps? Most of the polos I've seen are just solid colors, but are there any websites to get ones with patterns?
  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I bought these, i guess polos? off of craigslist. I just opened them and they have string ties, and they are two different sizes. in the picture of them all rolled next to each other, the two on the left are wider and taller, and the two on the right are short and thinner. also it looks like...

  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So I am determined to make my own pair of polo wraps for my horse using fleece. I have the correct anti-pill kind, and I understand how to do it. I just don't have enough. I have five feet in pink and another four in green, etc. I do not want to go out and buy 3 yards of another fleece fabric. I...
  12. English Riding
    :wave: I always use polo wraps while working my horse, Laddy, so he will not scar his legs since he has a lot of action and has shoes on his front two feet. I'm aware that there are other types of boots and wraps out there. Is there any kind of wrap or boot that you prefer to ride in or always...
  13. Hobbies
    So I have a good sewing machine and enjoy using it. I was thinking of sewing some things and selling them here and on Etsy, but the problem is... WHAT? At first I thought of really nice, original and thick saddle pads, (I had another thread talking about this) but those might be too much work...
  14. Dressage
    What do people use for wrapping legs in dressage here? I have ridden barelegged for a while now, but I am a little concerned with the hardness of our arena stone, are polo wraps good or would you suggest something else? I already have some polo wraps, and I know how to apply them, but I have...
  15. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I usually just use boots to support my horse's legs, but i figured i may as well start using polo wraps, just so i know how to put them on and get good at it. Anyway, my trainer showed me how to put them on, but that was a while ago, so i searched it up online to find some " how to" websites to...
