Hoof Boots, Why are they illegal in show world?

I've come across recently, that my gelding threw a shoe two days before a show, and while his foot was spared, having only one flare blow out, and the shoe was okay too (only 3 weeks on) I wanted to put a boot on it to compete and earn more points to my end of the year place, but I was told by several people that they do not allow them in the show rings, why would this be?
Do they not serve the same purpose as a metal shoe?
I have heard for traditional purposes, but I'm not convinced.

Ask someone who is on the board or committee of that particular show if boots will be allowed. Boots can conceal any number of illicit practises.
