Is there a reason to paint my horses hooves?

Besides to make them look nicer, is there any health benefit for painting my horses hooves?

People paint their horses' hooves when showing them or if they take part in a parade. Dark horses' hooves are usually painted with black hoof polish and light-colored horses with clear hoof polish. Otherwise there's no reason to paint your horses' hooves as it's better to leave them uncovered as they are.
