You don't normally need them on grass of course, but some grass areas are also rocky.. For instance where I sometimes ride in the Kansas Flinthills there is rock everywhere. Other places it's a mix, some rock, some grass, some road.. My horses can be gimpy/tender on pavement where there is loose bits of gravel as well. It could be the trim too. Is any sole being removed, especially near the wall area? That can make them more tender.
