What does your farrier think? That would be the person to ask because they know your horse's feet best.
Some rodeo horses are barefoot.
Some have shoes.
My horse Red has shoes to correct a front leg issue, and also for the purpose of traction since he tends to slip on bad ground.
Usually for high school rodeos they often have a good warm up area, and also keep the ground decent. So I would say to try it without shoes if your horse has never had them. And you can always put them on later if need be.
