Saratoga Bandages, An Eventing Classic
Saratoga Bandages and extra supportive, stretchy bandage that provides more support to the lower leg of your horse than a standard polo wrap. Lightweight and breathable, Saratogas suck up only a small amount of water – relevant if you’re using them under cross country boots for extra support… or over porter boots (use 12′ Saratogas for that).
- Patented silicone application on the inside of the horse wrap
- Refined for a more secure fit
- Pressure distributed evenly over the leg
- Available in 9′ & 12′, Black or White, 2 packs & 4 packs
- Choose the 12′ for applying over polo wraps or over porter boots
Saratoga bandages can also be used over a polo wrap to provide extra support while training. The firm controlled stretch of the Saratoga Bandage offers more support to the lower leg than any other equine leg wrap of its type. The lightweight breathable material will suck up only 3 oz. of water, keeping weight down even in the worst conditions.
Saratoga bandages have a patented silicone application on the inside of the horse wrap. The Saratoga Bandage has been refined for a more secure fit, providing even pressure distribution on the leg.
Black or White available (all other colors have been discontinued by Saratoga Equine)
For your convenience, Four Star Brand sells Saratoga Bandages in sets of 2 or 4 in lengths of 9′ & 12′ x 4″ wide. We find that the back legs of warmbloods take up the 12′ bandage and the front legs the 9′. Though it’s possible to use the 9′ all the way around and save some $ IF you’re not putting anything under the Saratoga Bandages such as Porter Boots.
Looking for some interesting background on Saratoga wraps & Porter boots? Eventing Nation has a good article on “The Eternal Quest for Better Leg Protection” where the author discusses porter boots, Ecogold boots etc.
