Stockist News May 24


One of our USA Stockists, Alyson Scott, held a booth at the recent Equine Affaire expo in Ohio. This was Alyson’s first

event as a Scoot Boot Stockist.

Alyson met with many Scoot enthusiasts and had the chance to connect with Scoot Boot brand partner Pat Parelli of Parelli Natural Horsemanship. Events are a great way to reach a wider audience and showcase Scoot Boot products to

the unfamiliar. There is nothing quite like picking up a Scoot Boot, feeling how lightweight and flexible it is for horse owners, and having the chance to speak face-to-face with Scoot Boot Stockists. Read more here about her experience:

Nominate for Farrier of the Year


It's time to spotlight the extraordinary contributions of farriery work within our Stockist community. Nominations for International Farrier of the Year are now open. Farriers play a crucial role in the health and well-being of horses. We are proud to have many farriers now incorporating barefoot services and offering Scoot Boots globally, using their skills to modify our boots for rehabilitation. If you know a fantastic farrier who should be recognised please nominate them for this award.




Olympians using Scoots


The much anticipated and talked about 2024 Paris Olympics are only a few months away!  Let's take a moment to reflect on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the incredible performance of Sweden’s Peder Fredricson winning a team Gold Medal and an individual Silver medal in Show Jumping.


Peder's barefoot philosophy is consistent within the Swedish team, with two-thirds of the team’s horses competing barefoot, including fellow teammate Henrik von Eckermann. Both Peder and Henrick have been long-time users of Scoot Boots and have contributed significantly to the awareness of barefoot horse welfare in high-level competition. You can share this video with your followers on social media.


 

Peder will compete at the Paris Olympics later this year. We wish him, his team, and his horses the best of luck and good health in the lead-up to the event.



 


Did you know?

FEI guidelines now officially allow for hoof boots to be worn during competition for Show Jumping!  The approved hoof boot must weigh under 500g per leg, which is great news for Scoot Boots as our lightweight design falls under this weight limit for our most popular sizes. To view the full FEI saddlery guidelines you can take a look here.  Pictured under the section for shoe substitutes is a Scoot Boot, that gives us the double tick of approval!
