Stretch & Flex - Choosing between Flatwork & Training Wraps
Stretch & Flex Wraps are made of a modern material called Stomatex, designed to ensure your horse’s legs remain cool and dry while being well-supported and protected 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 designed with the comfort of the horse in mind, so are suitable for sensitive horses.
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 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.

Stretch & Flex Flatwork Wraps
Flatwork wraps are the more basic of the two wraps, covering the leg from knee/hock to fetlock with a similar shape to brushing boots. 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 protective cushioned panel on the inside of the leg that protects the horse's fetlock joints and splint bones, without any hardness or rigidity.
Stretch & Flex Training Wraps
Training Wraps on the other hand are particularly good for young, unbalanced horses, whilst training new movements and for big moving horses. 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.
