Hi everyone, I think I am finally coming down from my post Tasmanian State Championship high. It was a weekend of Personal Bests for Tiny and I and also my best friend Lydia Jackson who is also a Rose-Hip Vital Equine (RHVE) sponsored rider. We both competed recently at the Tasmanian State Dressage Championships in the FEI Medium Tour. Lydia won the Championship title with the statuesque Splendido and Tiny and I the Reserve Champion. Tiny with a full 12 months of RHVE as part of his daily regime performed brilliantly and looked stunning! Check out his quarter markers. His soundness and willingness comes from meticulous management and RHVE is a vital aspect of our plan. Splendido, also enjoys the amazing benefits of RHVE and the proof is in how beautifully he performed and how vibrant he looks.
Watch out for my blog space on Equestrian Life because I have so much to tell you about the lead up to the Championships. I also want to introduce you to my fellow travellers on the Road to Grand Prix and what is on the horizon for us.
Keep on doing the things you love and introduce Rose-Hip Vital Equine to your management plan.
Mim and Tiny
Mims previous feedback on Rose-Hip Vital Equine:
In May 2014 I attended a Rose Hip Vital seminar in Hobart presented by Justin Diamond and Roger Fitzhardinge. It was organised by my coach Lydia Jackson of Kingston Agistment and Training Centre who had heard about the product via Roger. I listened intently and I went home with a goody bag including 250 RHV with GOPO capsules. Im not one to jump on a bandwagon, not until I have at least listened to a few of their songs. I also like to research, a lot, and I know Im not alone there. So before I would try RHVE on my FEI horse Sunbury Lodge Toronto, I thought I would try RHV on myself first. I took the loading dose and then another month of RHV capsules. I noticed the impact of RHV with GOPO on my wellbeing when I STOPPED taking them. My energy levels decreased, I injured my calf muscle, my knee joints started to protest and I just didnt feel as well as I did when I was taking them. It took me a few weeks to realise it but when I did I went straight back on to RHV and I havent looked back. In January I ran my first half marathon, injury free ( I only started training for it in November). I have also managed to dodge every cold and flu that has been going around.
In early Dec 2014 I started Sunbury Lodge Toronto (Tiny) on his loading course of RHVE. We had been slowly increasing the intensity of Tinys work as the goal was to be competing at FEI Medium Tour in the late Spring. Tinys health and well-being are paramount and knowing how much RHV helped me I knew that RHVE would help him. By January I already noticed many changes. His coat, skin and muscle tone had improved. You could say he was glowing with health and vitality. His capacity for work was amazing and it was with such great enthusiasm too. However the most noticeable change was in the quality of his work, in particular the capacity to extend in trot had improved immensely, with better cadence and greater reach. This weekend we achieved a great result, Tiny was awarded Champion FEI Medium Tour at the Peter Horobin Tasmanian State Dressage Championships. Horse management and training is like a huge puzzle and RHVE is the final critical piece in Tinys management program. It is the only supplement I choose to feed.
Thank you RHVE we wouldnt be FEI Medium Tour Champions without this great product.
