Standing Bandages

Horses October 28, 2014 Print Friendly and PDF

The standing bandage is used on many performance horses during performances or for standing for half or all of a day. The wrap should be snug, clean, and wrinkle-free. 

The main functions of standing bandages are to provide protection and support and to cover various leg sweats, paints, liniments, or poultices. The support can help reduce any "stocking up" or wind puffs, but the actual support that is provided to the tendons and other leg structures is not as much as previously thought.
