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.
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 400 global resellers around the world.
Scoot Boot has since been named 2018 Telstra Tasmanian Business of the Year and is struggling to keep up with the global demand for its growing range of products.
