Scoot Boot Fitting and Demo/Trial Program
Your hoof boots are an investment and a good fit is key to successful booting. But how do you know you are getting the very best fit? I can help! I will look at your measurements, send you several sizes of boots to try on, and look at the fit with you via video. But that's not all - the proof is in the riding - you get to trial your new boots for 2 weeks!
STEP 1: MEASUREMENT PHOTOS
For remote fittings I will need measurement photos of clean hooves, ***taken as soon after a fresh trim as possible***. Please either label the photos or indicate which hoof each photo is in your message.
- For width position the ruler at the widest part of the hoof.
- IMPORTANT: For length go toe to heel (0" at the toe!)
You can send to me using one of the following methods:
- eMail: email@example.com
- Facebook Messenger: https://m.me/TimberlineTackAndScootBoots
I will look at your measurements, determine sizes for you to try on and send you an invoice. Fitting boots are a $15 deposit each, refunded when boots are returned. I send you a label for easy return shipping, FREE with boot purchase. I usually send you four sizes to try on. This allows us to compare sizes side-by-side to ensure the very best fit!
STEP 2: WATCH THE FITTING VIDEO
STEP 3: SEND FITTING BOOT VIDEOS TO ME
I will look at videos to help determine the best fitting boot for your horse.
Before taking your video, put a boot on and if you think it might be a good fit, ***walk the horse about 10 feet - Do NOT skip this step!!**
Then, for boots you think might be a good fit, send me the following video:
- State horse name, hoof, and boot size (Fluffy, Left Front, Slim 3).
- Pan around the hoof, holding the camera steady for a few seconds on the front of the boot, the side of the boot, and the heel strap test (move finger around in heel strap)
Send me the videos using either:
- eMail: firstname.lastname@example.org

STEP 4: TRIAL YOUR NEW BOOTS!
Once we determine your size, I will send you a new pair of boots (I occasionally also have used boots you may purchase). You may trial the boots for two weeks starting on the day after they arrived. If you love them you are all set, you keep the boots. If they are not working out you can return them postmarked within 2 weeks and I will refund you your purchase price less $20.
Because of my fitting program, most people keep their boots and have no trial fee!!! I provide follow up support if needed after your purchase.
This program takes away the worry of what happens if your boots are not a good fit. I try and make buying the boots as easy as using them!
STEP 5: BREAKING IN YOUR BOOTS
Most horses are very successful in Scoot Boots, but like a saddle or any new tack, care should be taken to introduce your boots to your horse with a break in period. This allows your horse to get used to the boots and for the boots to form to the hoof shape. With that in mind:
- Keep the first few rides to a few miles.
- Check for rubbing, twisting or any other issues during these rides.
- Always use gaiters at first.
- Gradually increase speed and mileage.
- If using boots for turnout check them several times a day at first and then once a day thereafter.
IF WE DON'T GET A FIT
When reviewing your initial measurement photos I will always be up front about factors I see that may result in Scoot Boots not working. The better the photo quality the easier this is to determine! If you receive fitting boots and we determine they are not a good fit, or you choose not to purchase boots, I will hold back my return shipping expense (usually between $8-12) from your fitting boot refund. But I will then issue you store credit in the amount of that shipping, which can be used at any time for any item of any price in my store!
