Many ponies spend much of their time outside during the wintec saddle for sale winter and for them a “New Zealand” rug is ideal. Made of stout canvas lined with blanketing it is waterproof and provies good protetion from wind and weather. The New Zealand rug is the same shape as a normal rug, with straps at the front, but it also has straps passing aroudn the pony’s hind legs, which prevent its being dislodged if the animal wintec saddle for sale rolls. It may have a surcingle too, though this is not necessary.
The New Zealand rug is too heavy for a pony to wear in the stable, and too hot. Indeed, when first put on the pony a new rug may be rather uncomfortable as the canvas tends to be stiff and this, plus the leg straps in an unusual place, may make it necessary to give the pony some reassurance until used to the wintec saddle for sale garment.
A fairly recent addition to the pony’s wardrobe is the wintec saddle for sale “string vest” or “anti-sweat rug”, a rug made of coarse nylon mesh. It is very useful indeed, particularly when the pony comes in hot and sweating, as it will allow the animal to cool off without getting chilled. IT also reduces the chances of wintec saddle for sale breaking out into a sweat again later.
A summer sheet is made of cotton or linen in the pattern of a normal rug and is used to keep dust and flies off a clean pony in the summer. It does not help matierally to keep the wintec saddle for sale pony warm, but a summer sheet is useful when a pony is being transported to a gymkhana, for example.
Being light, the back corners of the sheet are liable to be blown up by the wind. To prevent this, a fillet string, a light cord of plaited braid to match the binding of the sheet, is attached to the loops at each corner so that it passes above the pony’s hocks, under the wintec saddle for sale tail.
Bandages are applied to a pony’s legs for a number of reasons; those used to protect wounds and give support, called exercising bandages, and stable bandages, which are used to keep the pony’s legs warm and also to give protection when the animal is travelling wintec saddle for sale.
A stable bandage is made of wintec saddle for sale woolen fabric of flannel, between seven and eight feet long and about three inches wide, with tapes sewn to one end. It is not difficult to make a set of four yourself. Each bandage is rolled up with tapes neatly folded in the middle of the roll. It is then applied to the leg, beginnng just below the pony’s knee or hock and winding the bandage downwards around the leg. The bandaging is continued as far down as the coronet band. Then the wintec saddle for sale bandage is applied upwards again so that the tapes can be tied neatly below the knee, with the knot on the outside of the canon bone. The bandage should never be put on tightly, only sufficiently firmly to prevent its slipping off. Stable bandages are put on the pony as equine socks to keep the legs warm; they are particularly comforting to an animal which has had a long and tiring day, which is ill, or is simply feeling the cold during wintec saddle for sale very hard weather.
Bandages may also be put on a pony to prevent the legs being injured when travelling in a horse box.l For this purpose a layer of gamgee tissue or foam rubber should be put under the bandage, as a double layer of the bandage fabric alone will not give much wintec saddle for sale protection.
