Purchase: I needed protection for my gelding's feet, as he was prone to abscesses due to bruising. Because he is 16.3 hands, with feet to match, most of the other boots on the market were extremely bulky and clumsy, and very difficult to put on and take off with "senior" hands. After many hours of searching for something less "clunky", I came across Scoot Boots. I found a local stockist and she came out and fitted my horse with a pair of size 7 Scoot boots. Most horses will wear a 3-4. I found the price to be very competitive at 150.00/pair.
Likes: I feel they really protect my horse's feet on the rocks and gravel that we sometimes have to ride on, and most importantly, my horse no longer ouchy on the rocks. I can tell he no longer worries where to put his feet. The trails I ride on are rocky, and steep with some muddy spots thrown in. Because of the terrain, I needed to be assured that whatever he was wearing wouldn't hinder his surefootedness, nor disrupt his rack and running walk. They came with gaiters to help protect with any rubbing, but I took those off, and there is no rubbing at all, other horses may need them. I also like the fact that the boot comes up to, but does not cover the coronary band, and there's nothing to rub the heel bulbs raw. I no longer have to worry about sole bruising, and my horse seems very comfortable with them. If the Scoot Boots did not work out, I seriously was wondering what I would do next, as all the other options did not work out. I'm also happy that this boot comes in sizes large enough for my boy and possibly draft horses. These boots are a little more forgiving as far as fit is concerned, which is great because the feet are always growing and never stay the same size.
Dislikes: The ONLY drawback that I've found is the "keepers" on each of the pasturn straps slide off if you're not careful. The keepers keep that strap from becoming undone. With all of the pluses this boot has to offer, I can live with this, I just keep spares around.
Quality: They seem really well made, and I really like the fact that they are somewhat flexible, the sole is more solid with LOTS of traction, but the sides conform to the side walls of the hoof, no gapping. There is no stitching or seams to come apart, and no velcro that, over time, loses grip.And no cables to break If I were to anticipate any issues with this boot, it would be the ankle strap, and they are easy and cheap to replace.
Summary: These boots were my last hope of finding something that would keep my horse sound and comfortable.All those hours searching for the right boot finally paid off.
