I could be wrong, but I believe that its so that the horse is able to feel if they clip the jump, so they don't start to hang their legs.

I use Wolf boots on the cross country course, and leather open front boots when show jumping.

When schooling at home, I use my Wolf boots. I just love them.
That or my SMBs. It all depends on how much support I think the horse needs.

I use the woof two strap boots for everything. I had my first pair for three or more years and finally got another pair.

I'm 90% sure that's the reason.

Thats what I thought, because you can get x/c boots with fronts to protect the cannon bone from the solid fences

I have a TB mare, who always seems to be hitting/clipping her legs when she jumps and sometimes during flat work. I don't know if its her front legs hitting each other, or back ones hitting her front. Just wondering, what sort of boots would be best for her (I am not competing her yet, and only jumping fairly small)(80cm) ??

Thanks !!

I have Roma open front boots and the hind boots. They resemble the Eskadrons except for the price tag. And they are easy to clean as well. I really like them. I found them on eBay.

I usually put bell boots on a green jumper as well as shin boots. Simpley for the fact that when they are coming to or landing a jump they can be "messy". Just for protection. After they know what they are doing I usually don't put on any boots unless there is an obvious problem. Sometimes wraps are just the easiest thing to use :)
