"Within a week his entire attitude to work changed"
Lydia Jackson is a level 3 Dressage Specialist coach, Level 2 General Coach and Coach Educator. She and her husband, Jonathan run the family business, Kingston Agistment and Training Centre approx 15 min from Hobart. Lydia and Jonathan have 3 children, Harry 8, Sabrina 6 and Charlie 3yo. Before children Lydia was a successful Eventing Rider with wins and placings at all major 3DE over Australia and twice a member of the Australian Young Rider Trans Tasman Team. Lydia was also on the National B Squad for Athens and on the NSW Institute of Sport Squad for a number of years.
Since returning to Hobart a little over 10 years ago she has primarily concentrated on a Dressage Career with success at National level with numerous horses. She has had success on Snowy River Blackwood and Precizion at Grand Prix and is about to compete GP in a couple of weeks on a homebred and produced horse Splendido.
“Our horse family and human family from Kingston Agistment have been using Rose-Hip Vital since March 2014. My mum Cheryl has noticed a huge improvement in her overall strength and mobility. She is almost lifting the same weights as me in our PT sessions and finds it much easier to get up and down.
My husband Jonathan recently ran a successful Gold Coast marathon with a fairly substantial tendon injury sustained prior to taking Rose-Hip Vital. He completed his training and the marathon on Rose-Hip Vital and is still taking it religiously.
I myself have not visited the chiropractor as much as I have prior to taking rosehip and I have got through winter without a cold or flu. I can honestly say this is the strongest, least tired and healthiest I have felt for a long time. I thought I was just getting old!
We have 2 horses on Rose-Hip Vital. Snowy River Blackwood who is a successful Grand Prix horse for Di Jenkyn, my mum and myself. He is retired from competition but is still worked at home and attends the occasional clinic. He has bloomed on Rose-Hip Vital, his weight is easy to maintain and his coat is shiny and his first trot step is 100% sound.
My almost Grand prix horse is loving his work, is finding the work load easier, he seems fitter and stronger and my coach is impressed each month.
I have a client’s horse currently in work and she has put him on Rose-Hip Vital Equine and the difference is staggering. Within a week his entire attitude to work changed. He always had the handbrake on so to speak and if he thought things were a little difficult he would just quit. He is a happy horse that loves his work and more often than not I am saying “woah’ not GO."
