IDK Just my opinion but when jumping a horse that young (any horse really, but especially that young) I would have boots on. I've been reamed by a CCI**** eventer for not having boots on my very experienced jumper. It's not like the boots will prevent her from feeling the hit of the pole, it will just protect her from getting injured.
I know you already know all of this though.
I think barnprincess means that until your horse can go around a course without knocking a single pole, you should have boots on. Even then, I would always have boots on for stadium and XC
