About Scoot Boots NY
In 2017, Jeannette Dietrich, became the first New York State Stockist (dealer) of Scoot Boots. After riding and driving shod horses for many years, Jeannette decided in 2002 to transition her horses to 'going' barefoot. Many miles were riden and driven over various types of terrain and footing with her horses wearing hoof boots from different makers. Always in search of a better boot, when Scoot Boots first hit the Endurance Riding Community on the West Coast, Jeannette realized this new boot style from Australia named Scoot Boots just might be what she had been seeking. While waiting for Scoot Boots to prove themselves favorably on the West Coast, Jeannette ordered a few pairs of Scoot Boots and had her horses put them to the test over the rocks and through the clay mud of Brookfield, NY. Because of the impressive outcome that her horses experienced wearing their Scoot Boots, Jeannette knew that she had to bring these boots to others in the equine community in New York. Since clearance in 2017 by the Scoot Boot Company in Australia to become a US Stockist, Jeannette has fitted numerous horses that are happily riding and driving both for pleasure and competition in multi disciplines.
*Scoot Boots NY is a re-seller of Scoot Boots and completely independent to ScootBoots.com in Australia.
THE HISTORY OF SCOOT BOOTS
Dave MacDonald is the creator and innovator of the Scoot Boots. He had spent a total of 30 years working with horses and 12 years as a full time farrier when he developed the world's first practical hoof boot, the "Old Macs" multi-purpose hoof boot in 1998.
Since the advent of the "Old Mac" hoof boot many new hoof boot designs have entered the world boot market to cater for the rapidly growing industry of barefoot trimming and booting.
The Scoot Boot is the latest innovation in hoof boot technology which is superior to any other horse boot on the market. This is due to its simplicity and ease of fit. Unlike other hoof boots, the Scoot Boot will not get soggy, heavy or wet when riding through muddy and wet terrain due to a sleek one piece shell. The Scoot Boot is constructed of very strong thermo plastic urethane (TPU) as well as the securing straps, which gives the Scoot Boot superb strength to stand up to all types of terrain that you and your horse may ride over.
