I have been using Scoot Boots to help with the rehabilitation and maintenance of horses that have Equine Metabolic Syndrome. In these horses we have either been trying to prevent laminitis or help with the recovery after laminitis. Exercise increases insulin sensitivity, and has many other beneficial effects to help hooves heal. The scoot boots have been great at protecting thin soles and improving the horses comfort and movement Here is a photo of Emily riding Moloko in her scoot boots.
