    I prefer boots for jumping and polos for flatwork. Only use polos if you have been taught and are confident using them, as they can easily damage your horses legs. I used open fronts($20) for the front, and woof for the back, plus bell boots when jumping in the ring(my horse has a BIG and clumsy stride). Bell boots were $10, woof boots were $30. When going cross country or on trail(and we are jumping) I like my dalmar eventing boots so far. They were a bit pricey($80) but I really like them the few times I have used them.

    SO I guess I think you should boot up.

    On a side note, I don't reccomend jumping your 7 year old horse up to 3ft 6 times a week, no amount of boots and wraps are going to protect his legs from that much constant concussion.(no offense intended, take this with a grain of salt please)

    Agree. Jumping is pretty hard on horse's legs and neither boots nor polos will help with it. I know jumps are fun, but jumping is about LOTS of flat work. I'd suggest to jump once-twice/week and work on your position and your horse movement the rest of the rides.

    As for polos as already said get splint boots instead. They don't provide support, but give some protection.

    I completely missed the part about jumping almost every day.

    Jumping daily, no matter how high is very hard on the horses legs and nothing will protect them from that.

    Remember all the big time jumper barns rarely jump. Once their horse is trained to that level they will only jump once or twice leading up to a competition. They flat work flat work flat work. Jumping is just dressage over fences.
