I think it's only if they are used all the time. If you are going to be doing something that you are going to need a very supportive boot then it's fine, but if you don't I wouldn't recommend using them. Like, I don't think you would need them for western pleasure.
depends on if you are going to be training or just riding. When I am training or really working my horse I will always throw them on. There will be added stress to the leg when I am doing circles, quicker stops, lead changes etc... if Im going for a ride down the rode or a easy practice session then I don't put them on...
