"I’ve been amazed at the result and now RHV is the only joint supplement receives"
Hi! I thought I’d just say how impressed I am with RHV!
I’ve had my 14yr old Prenovice eventer on it for a few months now and he hasn’t skipped a beat. I’m an event and dressage rider from South Australia. My main horse is a 14year old thoroughbred gelding by the name of Mr Wilson. Wilson was diagnosed with kissing spine 18months ago after a visit from the vet to assess some hind end lameness after a fall out on cross country. The vet suggested either rather invasive surgery with quite an extensive rehab programme or to retire him to the paddock.
It was decided to not push him through it all and he was retired to paddock life. However, the decision never sat right with me and 6months later, we had 2 different vets come out assess Wilson. I am so glad that I followed my gut as it was found that Wilson’s pain was coming from his sacroiliac, caused by the fall. Even though he does have kissing spine, not all horses experience pain associated with it if they are worked correctly. Unfortunately, from the injury Wilson had developed slight arthritis in his sacroiliac joint along with the hock arthritis he has from eventing and racing. Prior to his injury I used to have his hocks injected, which never seemed to last very long before he showed signs of discomfort again. Even with the addition of pentosan he still felt a bit stiff. After the 2nd opinion Wilson has come back into work however was forever stiff and sore.
It’s been a year now since Wilson was brought back into work, and almost a year since he commenced RHV Equine. I’ve been amazed at the result and now RHV is the only joint supplement receives. It’s been a long slow journey, but Wilson is now back out competing, feeling better than ever, ready for his first 1* early next year. I’ve been so impressed with RHV, I’ve even recommended it to my mother for both herself and her aging canine. The poor little dog would be crippled the day after going for a short work. It’s so nice seeing the change in him. He’s still a bit stiff to a degree, however he no longer cries out in pain, refusing to move more than a few metres like he used to. Will definitely continue with it and recommend!
