Bandages

The horse’s limbs are bandaged so that it does not damage its tendons. The benefits of bandages are often exaggerated. It also happens that horses hit their feet with horseshoes, mostly on fast turns, stumbling, jumping, and causing damage to themselves, leading to lameness.

Lameness is not a disease, but a symptom. A lame horse falls on his good leg to relieve and save the sick. If anyone wants to know which leg a horse is limping on, then he should look at it and repeat its movements.

Bandages are designed to protect against bumps and sprains. You need to apply them skillfully. Poor bandaging can lead to injuries to the horse. Bandages are tied in a knot on the outside of the leg. They should not press, otherwise they will cause injuries: the knot can not be tied behind the tendons, it must be tied firmly, so as not to untie during the ride.

If the bandages are loosened on the move, the horse can step on them, get tangled and fall. Therefore, bandages are often sewn or used so-called “buttoned bandages” – bandages with “Velcro” at the ends.
