In my world, hoof boots are for this exact use: as a "spare tire" on trail if a shoe is lost. I have had it happen to Dream once and once to my DH and George. In both cases, we applied a boot (we have easyboots, but as long as it fits, the concept should be the same regardless of boot type). The horses went on down the trail who no appreciable issue, going another 5-10 miles.
However, as someone else pointed out, it was only a band-aid until we could get the horses to a farrier and have the shoes replaced.
