This taping can be used for both acute and chronic suspensory conditions and be worn preventatively during training on horses with recurring or chronic conditions. This taping can aid in decreasing local swelling and inflammation, tissue healing, and in support of the ligament.
Apply single 2” wide strip of Equi-Tape® to both sides of the leg as shown with moderate stretch. Tear the third strip in center and apply with full stretch at base of the fetlock being sure to decrease stretch as you cross in front of leg. Continue tape around leg and lay down ends with no tension. The anchor piece placed below the knee is applied with no stretch.
