Skid boots

I have seen good reining trainers (world pros) slide without skid boots.....do you always need to use skid boots? Or does it depend on the footing?

I have been reining for almost 20 years and when I first started things where different but now I doubt you will see any horse with out skid boots at any level. I know I would not risk my horse with out them.

Nhreiner, I mean when training at home where the footing is 'known' and when the horse isn't being pushed as hard as it would be at a show, just curious

If I am stopping the horse has skids on. The time it takes to put them on is small compaired to what may happen without them. Safe over sorry.
