Rarity is an 11 year old Warmblood mare, currently competing at Advanced Prix St George Dressage with Adam Vellere. Rarity had a nasty leg injury when she was 7. She got her hind leg stuck in a wire fence. She had many months off and it was a slow recovery. Rarity is also quite a ‘moody mare’, she can be very cranky to ride and to handle on the ground.
We have tried many different remedies and products to no avail. I heard about Rose Hip Vital Equine at Equitana, where I had a chat with Justin who gave me some product to try. Within 3 weeks I had really noticed a difference. Rarity has to be stabled at night as she also suffers from the Itch. This results in her hind leg swelling from the old injury, and a snotty nose from the dust. In the 3 weeks she stopped getting the snotty nose and her leg was nowhere near as filled as it used to be.
The longer she has been on Rose Hip Vital Equine, I have noticed that not only has her coat improved and grown back from the Itch, her whole temperament and work ethic has changed. Rarity has gone from a ‘won’t do it’ mare, to a ‘ok let’s do this’ mare. We have been able to take our training up a gear and she feels much more supple and is actually enjoying her work. She is also much much friendlier and her PMT appears to be under control.
Rarity is not on any other supplements other than the Rose-Hip Vital Equine and I can honestly say that I believe it has worked wonders for her. I have also put my up and coming young horse on the product and my 18 year old Grand Prix horse, Moscow, who has just been picked for the National and State Young Rider squad.
I have even started our 15 year old cattle dog on Rose hip Vital Canine. She was having trouble with the stairs and generally a little bit stiff. She is now much happier and running around with the other puppies.
I recommend Rose Hip Vital Equine to all of my clients and agistees. It’s natural, non-swabbable and above all it works!!
