Leg and Tail Bandages
A stable bandage, or standing bandage/wrap, is a type of wrap used on the lower legs of a horse. A stable bandage runs from just below the knee or hock, to the bottom of the fetlock joint, and protects the cannon bone, tendons of the lower leg, and fetlock joint
Exercise bandages are stretchy wraps that give support to the tendons in a horse's lower legs. They tend to be used when a horse is in strenuous work, or if he has suffered from tendon problems in the past. They are wrapped around the lower leg, and are usually secured with a Velcro strap.
A tail bandage is used to keep the tail clean and prevent the hairs from being rubbed off or caught up on something, especially during shipping. It can also be used after grooming, to train the hairs to lie flat. Leg bandages are intended to provide support, protection from injury, or warmth.
