first of all I would like to say that they are not quite dangerous, just come with more risks than an actual boot might.
Polos are not quite adequate for use in potentially wet conditions (such as cross-country riding), as they absorb water and become very heavy and could potentially sag. The Velcro is also not super reliable and may lead to getting pulled down and tightening around the tendons or if a horse were to step on himself while wearing them.
This is what I understand from my trainer. I prefer SMBs or woof boots possibly
