You're right, I wouldn't go out on course with open fronts or no boots, then again my horse isn't running around BBN or BN. At those lower levels, the jumps are able to be jumped from a trot and sometimes even walk (although I don't advocate that either)... I doubt the horse needs a lot of boot, they're just nice to have as a precaution. If it does need the boots, maybe eventing isn't it's calling.
The picture of Pitt was just to show that yeah, they are used on xc sometimes. I was not encouraging, just saying "look, it happens".
