Stretch & Flex - Choosing between Flatwork & Training Wraps

Stretch & Flex Wraps are made of modern materials, designed to ensure horse’s legs remain cool and dry while being well-supported during exercise sessions. Both sets of wraps are wonderfully soft, pliable and flexible allowing the horse to move freely, without the feeling of restriction. The wraps have been particularly designed with the comfort of the horse in mind.

Flatwork wraps are the more basic of the two wraps, covering the leg from knee to fetlock. These are perfect for flatwork schooling and hacking established horses. The wraps offer supreme levels of comfort whilst protecting against minor scrapes and knocks. Flatwork wraps have a thick cushioned panel that protects the horse’s fetlock joints and splint bones, without any hardness or rigidity, making them ideal for veterans.

Training Wraps on the other hand are particularly good for young, imbalanced horses. They offer great support whilst training new movements and superb for big moving horses. Outstanding protection is provided when riding over uneven ground, hacking sharp or spooky horses and any fast work. They offer extra support, designed to extend further down the leg supporting the fetlock joint and pastern. Extra thick, soft padding protects the tendons, the inside of the cannon bone, and the fetlock joint. A wrap- around strap snugly supports the fetlock joint and prevents sand and grit from getting up inside the boot. These wraps fit snugly around the contours of the horse’s leg providing gentle support and protection.

It is important to get the correct size to fit your horse/pony, sizes range from small to extra large including a medium narrow which has been designed specifically for those skinny leg horses (having the same cannon width as the small boot but the length of the medium). For further details see the size guide.

Stretch & Flex wraps are particularly useful for horses and ponies recovering from injuries or those suffering from joint problems such as arthritis. They provide gentle cushioning over scars and splints, helping to prevent any further knocks/kicks in this area and avoiding chaffing.

Stretch & Flex wraps are made from breathable Stomatex®, an unusual looking, spotty material with advanced technical properties.

It is a high performance fabric made from lightweight, ultra-thin, non porous polyester membrane that has multiple innovative uses. This unique material demonstrates superior tensile strength and elasticity, whilst offering significant advantages over various plastic foam materials. These factors make Stomatex® ideal for close contour applications where body movement must remain unhindered. Stomatex® works by replicating the way in which the stomata of a plant, breaths and removes excess water through transpiration.
