Trailering Safety with Leg Wraps

Protecting your horse’s leg during trailering or shipping is cheap insurance. As a hose rides in a trailer, there are constant challenges to his balance and on occasion he may lose his footing and step on himself or get stepped on by another horse. To protect your horse’s legs, you can use quilts and polo wraps or protective shipping boots made specifically for the purpose. Whichever kind of protection you use, make sure there is padding, so as not to restrict the horse’s circulation and that the wraps come down low, covering the coronary band. This delicate area at the top of the hoof is easily damaged when the horse trips or steps on himself; by covering it with the wrap or boot, it protects this sensitive area from damage.
