Sheer Etiquette (Ellie)

CONDITION: Joint Pain
RIDER: Susan Paix's
LOCATION: AUS

In 2011 we started competing at Grand Prix International, unfortunately arthritic changes and stiffness set in for Ellie and we sadly decided to retire. Six months ago I started Ellie on Rose-Hip Vital. The change is unbelievable. 

Ellie is better now than when she was competing. Ellie and I are going back into competition at the ripe age of 20. This is so exciting!

Life is too short to be unhealthy. Thank you Rose-Hip Vital!

“Peanut today has been moving freer and happier to be rode”

I bought this for my 10-year-old mare that has been “crimpled” or “off” for 5 years. She was excellent and super-fast barrel horse at age 4 but when she was 5 she got her halter caught on the trailer, panicked, and pulled back. I believe this messed up her pull which then led to her back and into each over her legs overtime after still competing and training. She started limping but she would favor a different leg every time. I saw a horse on one of your videos that moved a lot like Peanut so I thought “well it’s can’t hurt to try”. Peanut today has been moving freer and happier to be rode, she’s not completely sound yet but she’s getting really close!


I have been very happy with the results!

"I have noticed improvements in his flexion and length of stride"

I have had my 22 year old ex school horse Zed for over 2 years now. Many years ago he had a bad incident with some wire and cut across his off hind, leaving quite a big scar. This resulted in over compensation on his left side, causing the odd shoulder problem, balance issues lifting his legs on the left side and some unsoundness in the fore at times.


In April of this year (2012), Zed managed to cut deeply right across the top of his front right knee. After daily treatment scrubbing back and adding what was necessary, it took three months for the scab to finally come off. Next was the task of getting him back into light work. Around this time, I started Zed on Rose Hip Vital. As it was difficult to pinpoint cartilage damage without a vet consultation, I have relied on Zed’s capabilities with a strict routine. Also being Winter, which is never a good time for an older horse, I had to be sure of what I was noticing.


There was definitely an improvement by the 6 week mark. It was suggested that he stay on the double dose for an extra month, which I found to be worthwhile and he is now on the maintenance dose. Gradually I have noticed improvements in his flexion and length of stride when he is not being lazy. Bearing in mind too, that even though the open wound was no longer, there was still a degree of swelling and soreness. This past weekend (October 2012), Zed has been more forward and was able to complete a Cross Country course (jump poles only) and games day with no after effects the following day. It has taken 6 months of strict, regular work and daily doses of Rose Hip Vital to have my horse back better than he was before.


I look forward to continuing the use of Rose Hip Vital as a maintenance programme for Zed. Overall, although it has been harder from my point of view to report on his progress as I am with him most days, a change has been noticed by others as well. Anne


A further update to my last report in October. Zed is 22 years old and been on RHV since July 2012. At the time of starting, Zed was still recovering from a gash above his knee from April. There was a period of about 1 1/2 months that he would not eat his bowl feeds, so RHV was stopped. This was during the Spring time when the grass was lush. Since being back on it for the same amount of time, I have noticed improvements in his forwardness and recently, his ability to do regular jumping, both in the paddocks and arena and better than he has before with me. The ground is a lot harder at the moment so more likely that he wouldn’t cope as well, but not a problem. I look forward to continuing RHV at the beginning of Winter this year, as that will certainly be a good test for Zed, being the worst of the seasons.
Regards Anne


This being my third testimonial throughout this past year, the big test for RHV was going to be this Winter, due to the fact that we started late July/August 2012 and heading into Spring. Zed, who will be 23 this year, has always been sluggish during the Winter months that I have had him and his hardest time. Quality of work was harder, but that could be the rider who needs to be on RHV. Originally I could report small improvements but nothing substantial from that time. Although the weather has been unusual and despite a small time over the Summer when Zed wasn’t eating his bowl feeds, he has remained on RHV, 6 days, if not 7 days a week. The difference this Winter for me so far, is the joy I am having getting that quality of work needed to keep his muscles built up and the overall picture is looking great.


I do feel that RHV has helped to keep him more supple during this icy weather in the hills of South Australia.

"Within a couple of weeks she looked the picture of glowing health"

My mare suffered a very nasty injury after she impaled herself on a star picket. I knew that she needed every support I could give her during the healing process and I put her straight onto Rose-Hip Vital Equine. Initially, as the wound was so great, progress was slow but she remained healthy and in good spirits, despite the daily needling and confinement. Within a couple of weeks she looked the picture of glowing health and I know Rose-Hip Vital was boosting her immune system, purifying her blood and facilitating in the reduction of inflammation and promoting overall healing. I am convinced that the rapid and complete healing is largely due to this supplement and I highly recommend it for every horse.

"Her whole temperament and work ethic has changed"

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!!
