Dr Ilona Hudson Explains Why She Has Been Using Rose Hip Vital Equine For A Few Years

Written by Dr Ilona Hudson

I have been using Rose-Hip Vital Equine on both my dressage horses for a few years now. The horses are both Australian Warmbloods doing dressage, the 11yo is competing advanced and the 5yo is competing novice. With the horses being young and having no joint disease I am aware of, it was hard to know what to expect from the product. I started using Rose-Hip Vital on the recommendation of a very knowledgeable client. I always like to try products on my own animals first before I recommend them to clients.

Another part of my rationale for trying Rose-Hip Vital on my horses is a sort of preventative management for them. I hope to have both of them sound for as long as possible. The most outstanding part of the response I noted in both horses in the 3-4 weeks after I started them on Rose-Hip Vital was a noticeable calming effect which was a bit of a surprise to me. They also both appeared to look really glossy and fat in the months after starting Rose-Hip Vital and I put this down to the effect of bioflavonoids. As I have already said it's hard to monitor joint effects when I am not aware of any pre-existing disease.

A few years down the track and both horses are still maintained on very minimal feed and both continue to look and feel well and also continue to be sound and perform well. Very recently I have decided to try the product on myself as well because unlike the horses my joints can ache and I'm interested to see if it helps.
