Introducing: Scoot Boot
Founded in 2015 by Dave MacDonald and Annette Kaitinis, Scoot Boot has disrupted an industry that has been relatively stagnant for 1,500 years. This young Tasmanian business has developed a game-changing boot for horses which allows them to ditch the old metal horse shoes entirely. The boot offers huge improvements for hoof health, are easy to apply and maintain, and it doesn’t hurt that they add a bit of colour and flair.
Having worked as a trainer and farrier for over 30 years, Dave recognised that existing horse boots were bulky, overly complicated and often impeded a horse’s movements. Dave went on to create Scoot Boot’s patented and design protected one-piece hoof boot which is comfortable in any weather and terrain, lightweight and easy to fit.
It took Dave about a year of trial and error to come up with his first prototype, and now Scoot Boot’s products are stocked in over 500 global resellers and they have since been awarded:
