This is the 3rd set of these I have purchased. They provide support to the horse especially if you wrap underneath the fetlock (as an equine podiatrist has recommended) and don't slip like other brands I have tried. They are light weight and do not hold sweat like fleece wraps. They are a little on the expensive side, but worth it!

Used them for years
I love the Saratoga bandages. I have 4 sets which 3 of them are for schooling. Each horse has there own. I love them My retired Jumper is aways stocked up in the hind So I love that when I take theses banadages off of him after working him that his legs are cool and not botherd. My Younger jumper Uses them for flat work and galloping sessions. Also I keep a spair set clean and redy to go for showing. They stay nice (all of mine are Black)

My favorite wraps for eventing
Find a pair of Porter boots, purchase these and have fun. The best wraps for hard knocks that cross country can throw at your horse. I have used saratogas and porter boots for years with no issues, the key is knowing how to wrap them correctly and using the porters under them! I love that they do not hold water or heat, my horses like them because they weigh nothing and so far no injuries from xc!

My horse seems to get cut very easily from boots. I use these to train in and I save a nice set to show in the jumpers. When he's happy, I'm happy.
The only con is they don't stay "like new" for long. That doesn't mean they don't still work beautifully. You have to really take care of them.
