"This product has given me back my content, healthy horse, providing Fox with the support he needed"
I thought receiving a communications internship from Rose-Hip Vital was my lucky break, it turned out that it was my horse Fox’s lucky break too! When I started with Rose-Hip Vital in August last year Fox was three weeks out of colic surgery having battled through several colic episodes during the four months prior, giving us no choice but to resort to surgery. These episodes of varying severity and the surgery to correct what turned out to be a partial twist of the large bowel took an enormous toll on Fox’s body. To add to this, his body rejected the stitches which began a series of minor infections at the site which were remedied only with bute and antibiotics taking approximately one week to heal each time and causing Fox even greater pain and discomfort during that time.
On starting my internship with Rose-Hip Vital I was lucky enough to be given a bucket of Rose-Hip Vital Equine to trial on Fox. Having worked my way through all the product information, testimonials and scientific research to familiarise myself with the product on my first day in the office, I couldn’t wait to get it into his feed and see if it worked for myself, hoping it would provide him with the anti-inflammatory and immune system support he so desperately needed at this time. Expecting to see only a slow and gradual change in Fox I was completely shocked when after only one week I witnessed the incredible impact of Rose-Hip Vital Equine when Fox had an infection at the site of the stitches for the third time. On this occasion however, it grew to nothing more then a bit of soreness and redness and within 24 hours it was gone. No bute, no antibiotics and not another week of further discomfort for Fox. I couldn’t believe the immediacy and the enormity of the impact of Rose-Hip Vital Equine. Not only did it put the brakes on this infection but it was also the last infection he had.
Fox continued to improve quickly over the following weeks and months. His coat, weight, energy and personality returning to reveal the healthy and happy horse we had known before his first bout of colic. When it finally came to bringing him back into work I expected him to lack energy and to struggle with recovery after each ride. But again I was surprised to discover that quite the opposite! Fox felt as though he had the energy and stamina that he possessed when in peak condition. He was happy and willing and felt like we hadnâ€™t missed a days riding, let alone 9 months worth! Even after work he was bright and happy and ready to go again next time. I couldn't believe it and had to keep reminding myself that he actually was unfit and out of condition and to take it easy because you certainly couldn't tell by riding or looking at him! Rose-Hip Vital Equine was definitely doing its job!
Nearly 16 months on from surgery Fox continues to blossom. He is happier and healthier then ever and back out competing in the show and dressage arenas, constantly receiving comments from people on how well he looks. This product has given me back my content, healthy horse, providing Fox with the support he needed to return to full health and work and I don't know if that would have been possible without Rose-Hip Vital Equine.
Thank you to Rose-Hip Vital for the incredible opportunities you have given me and Fox. It is a great feeling to have peace of mind knowing that my horses have the support of a natural and effective supplement for their ongoing joint health and wellbeing.
