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!

"The difference in our elderly pony is amazing"

We got Mia a couple of years ago as a companion for our elderly pony who suffers from laminitis and has to be kept separated from our other horses in a paddock with limited grass. We didn’t know much about Mia’s background apart from the fact that she was also elderly. Ever since we got her she struggled with her mobility. We assumed like our other pony that it was due to laminitis and gave her the appropriate supplements and medication to treat that. Unlike our other pony she just wasn’t responding to the treatment for laminitis. We had her on a low sugar/starch diet, Founderguard and Bute which weren't working. We noticed that her stiffness seemed to be worse in the morning and cold weather so got an equine body worker to do an assessment on her. She confirmed that Mia had arthritis in her right hip.


We had been using Rose-Hip Vital for a couple of years on our 25 year old horse and 15 year old dog after seeing a testimonial for it on Facebook. They had both had great results with Rose-Hip Vital so we decided to try it with Mia. Within two weeks she was walking much better and within six weeks she was walking normally. Now after 10 weeks she is trotting around the paddock. The difference in our elderly pony is amazing. She is no longer on any treatment or medication for laminitis. Rose-Hip Vital has worked so well for Mia we’ve also put our other elderly pony, Cupcake, on it and have noticed a huge improvement in her mobility also.

"Woosha seems to be have responded with more flexibility in work however biggest improvement is in recovery post work"

We have a mix of performance, brood mare, retired and young stock at home. We have recently introduced our two performance horses to your product. My wife's horse Ego Centrepiece (Artie) is competing at one star level in eventing. He is a 10 year old warmblood and use of Rose-Hip Vital Equine is essentially preventative at this stage and maintenance given eventing can be quite stressful on joints. My mare competes a bit of dressage and Show Jumping. Garuscha (Woosha) is warmblood but rising 17yo. Given her age she has been taking longer to bounce back from work and getting stiff and sore which results in a bit of jarring in her gait which further effects her performance. For her we introduced Rose-Hip Vital Equine as a repair intervention to stiffness and hopefully maintenance/prevention going forward. At this stage Woosha seems to be have responded with more flexibility in work however biggest improvement is in recovery post work or competition allowing her to back up next day. Artie is the large black warmblood with little white star on forehead, Narelle rides in blue and yellow outfit cross country. She was recently part of Gary Lung clinic featured in The Horse Magazine. Woosha is bay with big white blaze down face and two back white socks.

"I feel like I have a young horse again"

I have been using the Rose-Hip Vital Equine on my 15yo, 17hh, Warmblood dressage gelding, Catalina Florimo for approximately 6 months and the results have been quite remarkable. I currently compete him at FEI small tour level. About 5 years ago, when he was at Medium level, he started having soundness issues that vets have not been able to diagnose. I have had some success with chiropractic, massage therapy, ultrasound, etc. and a few long periods of rest, plus I have tried various joint supplements and injectables with variable results. I changed his hoof trimming, which has probably had the most impact, however there continued to be niggling, intermittent soundness issues, that I have not been able to solve. He would be stiff in warm up, and sometimes with a slight unevenness in his trot which was worrying. He would generally warm up out of it, but some days his work would seem laboured, which also concerned me. I started him on the loading dose of RHV Equine in April 2013. It took 3 weeks before I started noticing any difference, which included less stiffness in his warm up and no sign of unevenness in his trot. I was not prepared to draw any conclusions at this early stage as the unevenness would come and go, however the reduction in stiffness was quite noticeable. We moved to the maintenance dose, however after a week or so he appeared to get "stiff" again. The RHV team suggested putting him back on the loading dose, which I did, and the stiffness dissipated reasonably quickly. I have kept him on the loading dose ever since and occasionally I will give him a "top up" scoop if I am in any doubt, and the results have been quite remarkable. I now have a horse with much more energy and willingness to go, who has been consistently sound for longer than I can remember and is getting much stronger in his work which is showing in our scores. I am so delighted with the outcome, and to know that my long term equine partner appears sound and happy. What I really like about this product is, not only does it appear to really work, but it is completely natural, vegetarian product (which I am much more comfortable feeding to my horse that the marine or bovine based alternatives), that has a long list of additional health benefits.


Update: I have been using Rose-Hip Vital Equine on my 16yo, 17hh, Warmblood dressage gelding, Catalina Florimo for over a year now and I can only say the results have been consistently remarkable! Some years ago he developed some niggling, intermittent soundness issues, stiffness, unevenness in trot, etc. In addition to spending a lot with vets, I tried a number of joint supplements over time, including Pentosan, without much noticeable effect. So I had this wonderful horse that I loved and had owned since we were both beginners, who was stiff and often uneven in trot, and I was incredibly frustrated about his future. I sceptically trialled the RHV-E product before market, in April 2013 and I can only say I have been amazed with the results. It took 3 weeks to see a definite difference and I have established that I need to keep Florimo on the loading dose of RHV-E, but in doing so, I feel like I have a young horse again. He is much more willing, happy and consistently sound. I can tell if anyone in our stable leaves the RHV-E out of his feed for any period, as he becomes stiff and slightly uneven in his work. A day or so of topping him up and he is back to full soundness and performance. It is not the cheapest product on the market, but for this horse it is absolutely worth every penny and I am so grateful for having stumbled across it!

"Overall really happy with how she is going!"

Charity has been on Rose-Hip Vital for a good couple of months now. We have noticed a little bit of improvement since about week 6 or 7, I actually managed to get her out for a walk one day and then she even had a trot! We were amazed at that since we haven't seen her trot for a long time! It was so good to see that I got tears in my eyes :-) She has good days and bad days but we are still working with the vet and farrier regarding her feet, so overall really happy with how she is going!
