Blanket leg straps, you’ve seen the blanket falling off of some horses and some blankets seem to never move!
Well, this is why, the leg straps keep the blanket from sliding to one side. The straps are NOT meant to go around each hind leg.
There’s three ways to do the leg straps, around each leg (incorrect), then crossed is better but still not as good as looping them. what I mean by “looping” is you put one leg strap around one leg (I know I said not to, but bear with me here) then the other strap goes through the one already around the leg. This means both ate looped to each other. No rubbing, no discomfort and no blanket shifting! Yay!!
It’s impossible to know all the tricks but, this one is a handy trick to keep. It will save you lots of $ on replacing blankets after they’ve slid off and stepped on and ripped etc.
I specialize in problem horses, youngsters, horse rehabilitation and achieving softness and a better relationship between horse and their rider. I not only train horses but humans as well. Not your typical riding lesson but I can, if you so choose, teach you to train your horse!
I’m always available to help answer questions or share photos or videos upon request to better illustrate my advice.
I’ve mastered the “don’t break the bank” way of keeping your horse healthy and cared for while on a budget.
If you walk into almost any large barn in Oregon you’re bound to meet a horse I trained or sold! I’ve trained over 623 horses and counting! I post updates as I receive them from clients and buyers.
Thank you for taking the time to browse and hopefully learn something new!
