I am not an eventer, but I was raised up around Standardbreds, and my Grandparents always would tape the boots at the races...although not normally at home.
My grandparents would use black electrical tape. It is sticky enough to stick to the boot while you use it (we used to do twice around) but it wouldnt leave a sticky residue on the boot.
You can get electrical tape in a variety of colours as well, so that you could still have the colours that you ride in.
(We also always use baby powder on the inside of the boot...and I beleive it was to help prevent rubs on the legs.)
