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
