Splint Boots v.s. Performance Boots Jumping??

Hey everyone, i usually ride western but sometimes i like to do a little jumping in my english saddle, and i want to give my horse protection for his legs, and usually jumpers use splint boots, and i currently have front and back legacy perforemance boots and i was wondering which one would be better and if it would be worth it to get splint boots if i dont jump all of the time? and what do splint boots do? do they support their joints? or prevent injury if they hit the jump? and would performance boots be able to protect in the same way?

You can take my hat, and you can take my boots, but if you try to take my horse, I will beat you over the head with my saddle!

From what I remember what my trainer said to me on the same exact things, the performance boots don't really do much good with protecting the legs. And look at the splint boots, I don't really see how they do much good either. I have jump boots, and they are solid plastic open front boots, which I only use when jumping solid objects.

Hitting jumps bare legged teaches the horse a lot of things. Lift your legs up, jumps aren't meant to be knocked over
