Boots for Jumping?

I've decided to take jumping lessons this summer, and I would like to know if I should use boots only on the front legs or on all of my horse's legs.
My front boots are SMB Elites, and my back boots are Classic Equine legacy boots. Will they work for jumping, or will I need to get a different type of boot?
Thank you so much!

For jumping an open front boot is preferable, so the horse can better feel if they touch a pole. The boots you have will work for the time being though, or if you want to get something different without breaking the bank, you can often find neoprene splint boots that will do the job at most tack stores, priced extremely reasonably.

I will often just use front boots for low jumps, unless I am riding a horse that interferes behind, then I'll use all 4. You can ask your instructor what they recommend as well, they might have some you can borrow before going out and buying your own.
