Rolling polo wraps might not seem like something that should require a full on video to explain. But, here's the thing. If you roll up your wraps like this you eliminate a couple of things. First, confusion. Sometimes wraps look bigger when wrapped loosely and will trick someone into thinking they will fit a bigger area than they really will. That's just annoying. Second, you eliminate mess. I hate it when I drop a wrap and because the ends weren't tucked in it unrolls down the whole barn aisle. No one wants more work, and have to re-roll a wrap. And finally, injury. When a wrap is, again, rolled loosely you then have to pull it tighter as you wrap it around the leg. This is commonly done with inconsistent pressure and then can cause the horse to pull a tendon or ligament resulting in lameness, time off and possibly something more serious. Don't take that risk. It's simple, just roll a good wrap to start and you (or whoever ends up using the wrap) won't have any issues.
