We have exciting news from one of our Rose-Hip Vital Ambassadors, Chris Chugg.
Chris is one of our Rose-Hip Vital Equine sponsored riders with champion horses Cassiago, Cristalline and himself all looking after their joint health and wellbeing with Rose-Hip Vital.
Chris and Cassiago jumped their way to an exceptional 4 world cup wins and 3 second placings in 2015. On the weekend, at the Boneo Classic, he was officially announced as the FEI World Cup 2015 Australian League Leading Rider. Chris is now a 6 x Australian Showjumping Champion, and this talented duo has Rio firmly in their sights!
The Boneo Classic marked the final world cup qualifier for the 2015 Equestrian Show Jumping season. Chris Chugg was interviewed by another of our ambassadors, Roger Fitzhardinge during the Equestrian Life live streaming of the event. With the Rio Olympics in his sights, Chris talks about Cassiago and Cristalline, their qualifying performances and how Rose-Hip Vital has helped keep the team performing at their peak. Watch the interview below.
As an athlete your joint health and wellbeing should be number one priority, and its the same for horses who compete. Rose-Hip Vital is a scientifically and clinically tested plant-based natural anti-inflammatory, powerful antioxidant and natural source of vitamin C helping to relieve joint pain and inflammation, assist with recovery following exercise and help with injury prevention. Chris explains why its a daily must-have for him and Cassiago:
Rose Hip Vital is an essential part of mine and my team of Showjumpers daily routine to ensure we do everything we can to have optimal joint health. The results speak for themselves, Cassiago has had 4 World Cup wins and 2 seconds this season, is the current leader of the Australian World Cup league and has also gained a full certificate of capability which makes him eligible for selection for the Rio Olympics in 2016. Having a great product supporting myself and my horses like Rose Hip Vital gives me the peace of mind that Cassiago will be able to perform to the best of his ability on our exciting road to Rio.
Chriss partner, Gabi Kuna, and her talented mare Christalline, won the Summer Show Jumping Classic World Cup Qualifier and also came 2nd in the recent and final World Cup qualifying event for 2016 held at Boneo Park. Gabi, Chris and the 2 superstar horses embark on their trip to Europe next week (along with a few buckets of Rose-Hip Vital!) as they begin the their journey in the hope of representing Australia at Rio this September. We wish them safe travels, a healthy few months ahead and hope to see them on our screens in September.
