OK--am I missing something here?? How do you mean that wraps have to be wrapped correctly?? They are thin pieces of fleece and I personally would just wrap them like I put on a boot...always wrap towards the back to pull the tendon back, not forward. Is there something else to this method I'm not aware of???
Forgive me if I'm a little behind the times, but why would a person choose to use the wraps over the boots as they seem so flimsy to me. I had a horse badly burn himself one time on the back end from getting in the ground so hard, so ever since then I chose to use back boots all the time. I just can't see how polo wraps are better protection other than maybe they don't hold as much "heat" or something. But, I've never had a problem with boots...I like the new the Justin ones and I also use Abbeta, not a fan of pro choice though!!!
I'd like to hear the pros and cons of each just out of curiousity...anyone care to approach this one???

And I DO NOT wrap for any more than the time I am travelling. I don't think it is good for a horses leg to be wrapped for too long. Think about it this way, wrap your leg up real good for a day or two and take it off. Do you feel better? No, you feel like your leg is weak because the wrap was holding everything tight!!
This is just my OWN OPINION. My horses are horses, I do not really pamper them. They earn their keep around here.
