"We can actually see how much it has improved the action in her joints."
Absolutely loving Rose-Hip Vital. My advanced dressage mare, Danbry Park Delta, no longer gets pentosan, looks incredible and her movement is freer…we can actually see how much it has improved the action in her joints.
Delta and I competed at the APDC Champs – Regional Dressage Festival on the 5th October and won our division in the mediums, got over all medium champs and won their advanced test. We are more than thrilled. I have no doubt some of this success has to do with the RHV. It has helped Delta in so many ways.
I am on a high. Today I watched the very first foal I bred do her first Prix St George Dressage test. I am so proud of both Katrina and Delta. Katrina has done at least 98% of this horse’s training right from the very start including breaking her in. It has not been an easy road. Delta went through some pretty interesting issues with competition nerves and they came a nasty buster a few years back that dented both their confidence but today it was all made very worth it. Yes, the test had mistakes, yes both were being very cautious considering the rainy weather and slippery going, even in the deep sand but it is finally done. Delta is officially an FEI level horse. Katrina has some great sponsorship in Sublime Equine Performance Therapy and Rose-Hip Vital Equine, I know for certain both have played a major role in Delta sound and finally being able to keep a calm head at competitions.
It was only 18 months ago that fellow sponsored rider Lizzie Wilson Fellows suggested Rose-Hip Vital Equine for Delta and we haven’t looked back. Even able to take her off Pentosan with amazement at seeing her start to use her hindquarters, in particular her off side hind properly again. Her whole demeanor also changed. Gone was the temperamental, moody mare who was competing Elementary/Medium and in her place a happier, easy going horse who finished this year with Advanced Championships, two starts at Prix St George and showing a lot of talent as a small tour horse. I can’t recommend Rose-Hip Vital any higher…..amazing product. We will also be starting our young horse on it as a preventative.
