Type of wrap used on the lower leg of the horse. Stable bandages run from just below the horse’s knee to the bottom of his fetlock joint. Generally, they’re used to protect their tendons, cannon bones, and fetlock joints, to prevent swelling after strenuous exercise, and in some cases to keep their legs warm.
Bandages may vary in length and material and are often placed over under-bandages.
Bandages can be used for protecting the horse during exercises as well as in the box for protection or recovery.
