I've ridden some horses that I didn't use boots on at the lower. One stallion just hated boots and would try to rip them off, if given a chance. I didn't make him wear them until after training level. Here he is at training level in a recognized show. He had iron legs and, luckily, never had any problems.

I like using neoprene boots at low levels and at uppe rlevels I use custom formed pads with vet wrap and electrical tape. They are one use boots, although the pads are reusable.

Grr- Stateline is sold out already of the brushing boots. Sorry! They were a great deal. =[

I did find the following:

LOVE Chicks Saddlery:
Guardian Showmans Neoprene Splint Boot: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com

Never heard of them:
Splint Boots With Black Patches, Horse Splint Boots, Splint Protection

Those are both great options for you, not too expensive. =] I use the splint boots on my horse's front legs and love them.

EDIT:
These would be ok for hind boots, if she doesn't have anything. Again, not too expensive. [Boots in top of photo]

I, and any eventer, will agree NO OPEN FRONTS ON XC! 1 foot, or 6 foot it doesnt matter. I have a full set of galloping boots, and I duct tape them on even for BN! Its just common sense, just like what someone said previously, people wear vests and helmets why shouldn't your horse? But I understand trying to convince a sister...problem. :) Good luck.

DEFINALTY get full coverage boots. The jumps may be small but her horse can still hurt himself. I have never gone out without boots, I would even borrow a pair if i ahd to but don't go out without them.

In the end, we're not certain if God entrusts us to our horses
or our horses to us.Does it matter?
We're grateful God loaned us the horse in the first place. <3
