exercise bandage

stable bandage

A long narrow band of woven material that is wrapped around a limb to provide protection and support. Bandages can be applied to horse's limbs for a variety of reasons and consequently are made from a variety of different materials. Bandages with an elastic component must never be used without padding material to prevent the constriction of the skin and underlying tissue, which can lead to severe pressure sores.

In day to day use, bandages are applied to protect the limbs during exercise, and to prevent swelling of limbs during periods of rest (stable bandages) and as protection during transport (travel bandages).

Translations :

Français
  • bandage, m

Bande de tissu dont on enroule l'articulation métatarsophalangienne et le canon comme protection. Le placement correct du bandage est primordial. Les bandages ne doivent être ni trop serrés, car ils risqueraient de bloquer la circulation sanguine, ni trop lâches, car ils risqueraient de se défaire et présenteraient alors un risque de blessure pour le cheval et son cavalier. On distingue les bandages d'exercice des bandages de marche ou d'écurie. Les bandages ont surtout pour fonction la prévention des enflures et des blessures.

Deutsch
  • Bandage, f

Gewebebahnen, welche beim Pferd zum Schutz der Gliedmassen verwendet werden. In jedem Fall ist unbedingt auf den korrekten Sitz der Bandage zu achten. Die Bandagen dürfen einerseits nicht zu eng gewickelt werden, da sie sonst die Blutzufuhr der Beine beeinträchtigen, aber auch nicht zu locker, da sie sich in diesem Fall leicht lösen und zu einem Verletzungsrisiko für Pferd und Reiter werden können. Es werden Arbeits- und Stallbandagen unterschieden. Ihre Funktion liegt hauptsächlich in der Vorbeugung von Schwellungen und Verletzungen.

In veterinary use, bandages are used to apply compression to swollen limbs, for support and stabilisation or even immobilisation of injured limbs and for protection of a wound during the healing process. In all cases adequate padding is vital to avoid serious damage to skin and underlying tissue.

Long narrow pieces of fabric that are wrapped around (part of) the horse's leg to keep an injury clean, to protect the limb from injury due to interference or to prevent swelling. They can be used for exercise, travel or in the stable. Non-elastic bandages (e.g. those made from fleece-like material) are typically used without padding for exercise only. Elastic bandages must be used with padding as they could otherwise cause disruptions of the blood supply to the skin. Woven bandages (wool or synthetic) combined with thick pads are typically called stable bandages. They are applied from below the fore knee / hock down to the pastern and help prevent filled legs in stabled horses. Bandages with pads extending down over the coronet an up over the fore knee / hock are used for travelling.
