Give your horse the greatest chance of success on Rose-Hip Vital Equine

Rose-Hip Vital Equine is a delicious, nutrient-rich anti-inflammatory and multivitamin. Being wholly plant-based, it works gently to bolster your horse’s immune response with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and naturally-occurring Vitamin C. A simple daily dose is enough to ensure you have a more mobile, willing and happier horse.

Read on to find out how to get started on our programme with the best results.

Getting started

Incorporating Rose-Hip Vital Equine into your horse’s diet is as simple as adding the recommended daily dose to their current feed. Make sure to add it to cool or room-temperature feed, as hot foods and liquids undermine the potency of the supplement. If you feel it’s necessary, a sprinkling of water can help to bind the powder to dry feed.

Remember to always start your horse on our recommended loading dose. Our loading dose is a kickstart to our programme and ensures you’ll see amazing results much sooner.

Incorporating Rose-Hip Vital Equine alongside existing supplements and medications

We recommend that you continue your horse on their existing supplement or medication while beginning on our loading dose. After your loading dose period ends at four weeks, you may choose to wean them off their other regime.

Most people notice the benefits of Rose-Hip Vital after three weeks, so this is a safe amount of time to carefully track their response.

Your horse will love the taste 

Unlike other oral supplements on the market, Rose-Hip Vital Equine is incredibly palatable, making it much easier to mix in with their feed without disrupting their existing routine. At Rose-Hip Vital Head Quarters, we receive regular testimonials from families raving about how delicious their horse finds our supplement, even straight from the tub!

Soothing sensitive stomachs

If your horse suffers from a sensitive stomach, changes to their diet are generally better-tolerated when they’re introduced gradually. We recommend adding just a pinch of Rose-Hip Vital Equine to their feed initially, and then slowly increasing this amount each day. Once your horse is comfortable with the recommended daily loading dose, count this as their start to the programme and continue on this loading dose for 4 weeks.

Working with fussy eaters 

If you find you need to build up your horse’s tolerance, the best approach is to start small and build the dose up. As little as a pinch added to feed should slip under the radar of your fussy friend, with the amount incrementally increased over several days until the recommended loading dose is reached. Once you’ve built up to their recommended loading dose, consider this their official start to the programme and continue them on this dose until their loading period ends at 4 weeks.

Can I increase my horses dose form time to time? 

Occasionally, you may feel your horse could benefit from a boost to their usual dosage. In this case, we recommend increasing them back up to the recommended loading dose for their weight bracket. You can simply drop them down again when ready.

A few situations where our regular users choose to do this is for horses travelling long distances to and from competitions, for horses with severe or chronic conditions, or for older horses experiencing persistent issues that don’t seem to resolve using traditional therapies.

Remember, Rose-Hip Vital Equine is a completely natural, plant-based supplement, with no known contraindications or side-effects, so you can’t overdose your horse on our powder. If your horse receives too much Rose-Hip Vital Equine in their feed, their body will naturally excrete it in their waste (you’ll notice it by the unusual orange tinge!).

Does Rose-Hip Vital Equine swab? 

No, Rose-Hip Vital Equine does not swab and there is no withholding period. Rose-Hip Vital Equine uses the same supercharged rosehip powder used in our human and canine products, and is regularly used by group 1 race-winning horses, the National Rugby League – it’s even been used in the Olympics! No issue has ever been raised by doping authorities during routine testing.

Are there any side-effects? 

Not only does Rose-Hip Vital Equine have no known side effects, it’s also perfectly safe to use alongside existing medications and supplements.

Can my horse take Rose-Hip Vital Equine long-term? 

Of course! Think of your horse and Rose-Hip Vital Equine as a lifelong partnership that ensures long-term health and vitality.

Improve your horse's joint health and wellbeing

Reduce inflammation, protect cartilage and boost immunity

Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is a plant-based anti- inflammatory and immune system support for your horse’s joint health and general wellbeing. Made from Rosehips manufactured with patented processes, Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, protect cartilage, improve general health and improve performance.

Patented extraction and drying processes isolate and activate the compound GOPO® which has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. GOPO® works by stopping excess white blood cells from gathering around inflamed tissue, thereby helping to break the cycle of inflammation and protect cartilage. Rosehip products that do not contain GOPO® have not been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
