WELCOME to the forum!!

Boots are not required in showjumping at all. It really depends on the horse if you use them or not. On a greenie or one that is loose with his lower legs, I might put a pair of front boots on. They will help protact the leg if they bang on a pole. If they tend to brush with their hinds, I will put brushing boots on. If they tend to forge while jumping, I might put bell boots on.

I really do like using them on cross country because the courses are long and hard and SOLID. Horses get tired and might lower a leg into a jump.

The stallion in my avatar HATED boots. He would tolerate polos when schooling dressage, but put any boots on him and he would tear them off if given a chance.
