I think is qualifies for as a "tack" question, but I think it also directly relates to training. When do you (you personally) use boots on a horse you are jumping? Someone told me that I don't need them on my mare (we are just starting to train her in jumping). I don't usually ride with them when I ride her, but I do put them on other horses. I was told she "doesn't need them". I'm not sure I agree with this. Is it because we are just starting her training and the jumps are 2' AT MOST? Or do some horses really not need them if they have good jumping form? What did you use for training?
