My pony will sometimes hit a rail if I bury her beneath the fence (obviously my fault) and occasionally just if she's being lazy (though she's pretty much a rusher) but she has never actually knocked a rail.
I'm not a jumper, let alone an english rider, but I'm assuming boots would be better. They are thicker, most likely won't come undone, vent pretty well(depending on brand) and support tendons. Polos can come unwrapped and don't support as many tendons. But Polo wraps are cheaper and come in more colors, but boots last longer.
