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!

"I call Rose-Hip Vital my "anti vet bill in a bucket" or jar, as the case may be."


I call Rose-Hip Vital my "anti vet bill in a bucket" or jar, as the case may be. I have a 34 year old mare (Cosi) on special retirement agistment. I absolutely HATE not having her with me any more, but she is relaxing in the company of like minded girls, spoilt rotten where she is, especially with her double doses of RHV each and every day. She is doing very well, considering that she recently lost my 34 year old OTTB, Maestro, during the horrific start to the heat waves in the beginning of the year. Ever heard of a 34 year old ex galloper? Not many of them around! The reason for his longevity was constant harassment of my stock feeders for what else I could feed him (he had no teeth), more love than he had ever known in his life, and RHV.


Maestro was my 34 year old off the track thoroughbred. Of any horse to have aches and pains, he would have been the one, thanks to the first 11 years of his life in the racing industry. He suffered through very cold winters when we lived in Kalgoorlie. Rugging him left his legs out, of course. The last few years however he was out in the paddock keeping up with the younger ones. Like Cosi, he was on a double dose of RHV. I lost him only a short time ago thanks to the continued heat waves we had in WA. He became terribly dehydrated, and colicked. I had to do what I had to do, and smashed my heart to pieces in the process. We had been together for 23 years.... That's a happy, shiny 34 year old horse. Bless his heart.... In that huge tub of shandy chaff (pictured below) and soaked hygain truecare is lots of RHV. Maestro had no teeth, so this kept him fat and happy.


So now the tradition continues with "The Fat Boys", 2 quarterhorses, father and son who were not gelded until very late in the day so they could fully develop. Because of my own physical illness, they don't really do much... although this will soon change. I feed RHV in small amounts twice a day as a preventive measure, especially coming into winter. They run amok as they should, but my investment in their health NOW means less of a chance of things going wrong in the future.


For my boy, Yogi, a noodleheaded German Shepherd, he gets a small preventative dose... and I knock myself out on capsules. After a massive heart attack a few years ago, living with type 1 diabetes, and dealing with Polymyalgia Rheumatica, anti inflammatory assistance is very, very high on my list.

"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.

"The improvement in his muscle building, movement, attitude to work is exceptional"

Dixon is a 14yo, OTT. I have had him since 5yo. He was hit by a riderless horse in the show ring a few years back and has never had any confidence since. I thought I would have one more try at competing on him…this is it. He came back into work in November 2016, thought I would start him on RHV which I already used for my older horse. The improvement in his muscle building, movement, attitude to work is exceptional. We are training with a combination of horsemanship and dressage coaching. We are aiming for a dressage medal at the Police and Emergency Services games in March this year! Fingers crossed.

My daughter Hannah bought her new horse 12 months ago and she is a Hanoverian chestnut mare named Foxleigh Bretonneux (Juno). She turns 5 in December. We have used Rose-Hip Vital Equine since the day we bought her and she is looking amazing. We know how important joint protection is so chose to have her on RHE from the get go. Juno and Hannah hopefully will go on to have a lot of fun and good health in their future journey together which is only just beginning.
