"We have no doubt Rose-Hip Vital assists our horses with their joint relief"
Our Rose-Hip Vital journey started over 12 months ago when my husband Robert decided to give it a try. Robert use to be an amateur jockey back in the good old days, as well as helping run the family cattle property. All the years of race riding, a few nasty race falls and hard work on the property has meant that the “good old days” caught up with him. 14 years ago he had surgery on his spine and over the last 6 years he has had an osteotomy for both knees. I am sure that we have funded many surgeon’s holiday funds!! We still see the neuro surgeon every 6-9 months as our next step is a fusion. Robert may not be as young and active as he once was but he is still riding our own track work every morning and running our cattle property. The neuro surgeon is also happy with how he is travelling and is quite pleased that he hasn’t needed cortisone injections for over 12 months now.
We have had our race horses on Rose-Hip Vital Equine for just over three months and we are very happy with the results we are getting. The majority of the horses that come to us are tried, older horses, and it is no secret that up here in North West Queensland our tracks are dry with harder surfaces. We have no doubt Rose-Hip Vital assists our horses with their joint relief. Seeing as we ride our own track work we are lucky enough to get a real feel for the horses and how they are working and preforming.
If we can help maintain our horse’s health and keep them feeling fit and happy, then surely that gives them every opportunity to put in 100% on race days. We realise that there is no magic wand, however the fact that Robert can tell a major difference between taking it and not is a very big indication that Rose-Hip Vital works.
In this extremely competitive sport of thoroughbred racing, it is important that we have our horses fit, healthy and know that we have given them the best chance possible to go out there and run to the best of their abilities. This is why Rose-Hip Vital will be part of our training programme not only for our horses but the trainer as well.
