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.
