That is completely up to you.
I don't generally boot Shocking when we are jumping lower then 2ft.
However, I know people who wouldn't ride without boots.
May I suggest polo wraps?
The help support the tendons and add some cushion to the legs if your horse knocks them. Not to mention, they're cheap.
Especially if you're just teaching your horse and you don't plan to do very much in the form of jumping. Polo wraps is just one way you could go.
