from what i understand, as my dad looked into this quite extensively is that you can event in boots... and i have. im also pretty sure that you can do all three phases in your boots, no points deducted in dressage(just no bell boots over them remember!) I have power straps on my gloves that i event and do more rigorous work in, so they can't flex as much. it makes them a little harder to put on but once they're on they're on a lot better
I wouldn't suggest doing any jumping in your boots though, because as i said earlier they do pop off and it's pretty scary to have studded boots flopping around your horses ankles as you canter and gallop over a course....
also...im glad i made your day :P
