Most people use just on front (where the most weight goes). However if you ride on very rough terrain (say in rocky park or in mountains) all 4 would be a good idea.
Kathlene, boots is kinda substitute for the shoes. Like you may not need shoes 24/7 while horse is in pasture, but only that 1 hour/day on trail. Boots are very popular among trail riders, but I know they are used in ring work too (I've seen in jumping).
