“We struggle to keep up with him now!”
Our pony was intermittently lame and stiff. This often meant that he was unable to be ridden and my daughter would have to miss pony club rallies. After much we made some minor changes to his feed and got out our Vet.
We invested in hoof X-Rays which resulted in some minor changes to how our farrier was trimming our pony. Our vet told us despite these changes which would improve the situation that we would most likely need to keep our pony on anti-inflammatory medication for the rest of his life.
I introduced Rose-Hip Vital while he was still on the medication and gradually decreased the anti-inflammatory medication. I’ve kept him on the Rosehip Vital powder daily in his feed and we struggle to keep up with him on foot at pony club now.
He has not needed any medication for months now and is a much happier pony.
