Polo Wraps - Support the flexor tendons during workouts with a single roll of soft fleece, cotton, or slightly elastic material

  points or irritation
●Start directly below the knee placing the wrap on the outside of the leg. 
●Roll the wrap towards the back of the leg starting from just below the knee,
  going down the leg to just above the fetlock, and then back up towards the  knee.  
●You will roll the wrap counter-clockwise on the left legs and clockwise on the
  right legs.  
●You will overlap the wrap evenly (1/2 -3/4 width of the wrap) with EVEN AND 
  CONSISTENT pressure.

TYPES OF LEG WRAPS

Wrapping your horse’s legs the proper way can help soothe existing leg problems and provide support when your horse is being worked, hauled, and stalled. However, wrapping a leg incorrectly can create serious problems. Wrinkles in the wraps, a wrap that is applied too tightly, or uneven pressure from the wrap can all cause tendons damage or pressure sores.
