Dave Macdonald and Annette Kaitinis are co-founders and directors of Scoot Boot. Both live in Tasmania, Australia.

Dave spent his early life as a jackaroo in Queensland, Australia and then moved to the United States and trained horses and worked on ranches, primarily in Texas and New Mexico. He then trained to be a farrier in the USA and spent 15 years working as a farrier before heading on his barefoot journey.


Annette spent her early life in Tasmania and spent many years competing in showjumping around Tasmania at Royal and Agricultural shows.


She left her riding and Tasmania behind to move to mainland Australia for 18 years where she commenced practicing as a lawyer and then later as a barrister. Annette is now back in Tasmania and heads a marketing team promoting Scoot Boot products on the global market.
