International Junior Show Jumper
: Performance


"Rose-Hip Vital is an important part of his maintenance program."


Hi, my name is Matilda Alexander, I’m 16 and live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I have 2 show jumpers, Hedge and Dreamtime Invader (or Todd as he is known). Hedge is 12 and Todd is 16. To date my major showjumping achievement would have to be winning the Victorian State Junior title (on my old horse Eliza Jane) and the Young Rider State Title (on Todd) on the same day last year.


Other highlights include being on the winning Victorian Junior Team at the 2014 Aus Champs, winning the first round of the Victorian Tekna leg at Boneo this year and then the Young Rider at Boneo WC show as well as winning the A2 at Sydney Royal this year – all of these highlights have been on Todd, who is such a special horse and has taught me so much. I also made the top 10 in the Victorian Young Ambassador weekend, which was a great honor.


At the end of this week I am going to Germany with two other juniors from Australia to participate in the German Friendship Games at Herford, Germany. We get paired with a German rider who has to bring an extra horse for their teammate. There are 3 days of training with professional German riders and then 3 days of competition. It is so exciting to ride at a show in Europe and I am looking forward to meeting riders from around the world.


We have been using Rose-Hip Vital on all our horses for about 2 ½ years and it is now a regular supplement in all of their feeds. We started using it when I was competing Eliza Jane; who was 17 at the time and starting to feel her joints a bit. After a few months on Rose-Hip Vital she started warming up so much better and went on to win the Vic Jr Title for me. Todd is rising 16 and has done a lot of jumping in his life so it is very important his joints are looked after as well as possible- Rose-Hip Vital is an important part of his maintenance program.


Since starting to use Rose-Hip Vital all our horses’ coats look fantastic all year round, they all have very healthy appetites and their overall health is great. If any of them have any nicks or cuts we use the Rosehip Oil and they heal quickly and cleanly.


I cannot imagine not using Rose-Hip Vital as part of my horses ongoing maintenance program.


Improve your horse's joint health and wellbeing

Reduce inflammation, protect cartilage and boost immunity

Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is a plant-based anti- inflammatory and immune system support for your horse’s joint health and general wellbeing. Made from Rosehips manufactured with patented processes, Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, protect cartilage, improve general health and improve performance.

Patented extraction and drying processes isolate and activate the compound GOPO® which has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.

Rosehip products that do not contain GOPO® have not been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
