The “Body Bandage” has two important functions:
It protects sores from forming.
If sores are already present, the “Body Bandage” allows the horse to be worked without further aggravating the injury.
It’s made of highly technical elastic which is light and soft but extremely resistant.
When used regularly it prevents sores occurring as it acts as a second layer of skin. It is also indicated for use by inexpert riders whose leg movement. Because of its fine nature it does not hinder the horse’s performance.
N.B. The resistance of the elastic has been tested and retested and not once has it torn or ripped. However IS FORBIDDEN the use of sharp spurs with the “Body Bandage”
The elastic allows the skin to breathe and it is very resistant.
The “Body Bandage” is wrapped around the body of the horse in the saddle area, in direct contact with the fur, closing the Velcro fastening underneath (soft “sheepskin” ensures no rubbing from the Velcro)
The two light but resistant plastic clips fasten the Body Bandage to the D-rings of the saddle, thus holding it in position. The dog-clips are adjustable so the bandage can be placed at the exact point that requires most protection.
The four side straps which attach to the girth also stop the Body Bandage slipping backwards. These are adjustable to fit the various types of girth found on the market.
After use, the “Body Bandage” can be washed by hand or in the washing machine at 30°C. Using a normal washing powder and a brief spin.
