CONDITION: Joint Disease
"It has definitely improved his performance"
Tyrone is a 21yr old, 14hh, Connemara gelding with an absolutely lovable personality. He is my best buddy. At a young age he had a nasty accident where he went through a fence and was caught upside down in the fencing. He badly damaged his left foreleg and as a result has never been able to reach his full potential. He now has degenerative joint disease in this leg. He is a good little trail riding pony and works very well in straight lines but because of his injury has limited ability to work in deep sandy arenas or on the circle.
He has been given Rose-Hip Vital at the recommended dosage for 3mths and it has definitely improved his performance. He is far more supple and is now able to work in a much more forward manner in the arena. The length of his stride when doing arena work has also improved markedly.
3 weeks ago Tyrone had an accident in the wet, slippery paddock. He did a skid with his front legs and a split with his hind legs and appeared lame on his left hind leg. He was seen by the chiropractor and it was decided that he should be rested for app. 12wks. I doubled his dosage of Rose-Hip Vital and within a week he was moving about the “infirmary” paddock much better than was expected. It is now expected that he will be able to return to light work in 6 – 8wks from his injury rather than 12. This is great news.
