"He is a picture of health and loves life"

Rumple (aka APH True Seville) came into my life when I was his travelling groom. At the time he was on the Australian Dressage Squad with Paula Price. Late 2011 I got the opportunity to buy Rumple – at the time he was 18. He is a beautiful horse, not just to look at but also in personality, and very generous. He always gave 110% when we were training and competing. We did our last CDI together when he was 21yrs old. Unfortunately in May 2015 he sustained an injury which has resulted in his retirement. During this past winter he became very stiff in his hindquarters and found it difficult to get moving in the mornings – typical of arthritis which is to be expected in a horse of his age and one that has done as much high performance work as he has. He was prescribed 5mls of bute per day and this did help him, but there was still residual stiffness. So, I decided to try Rose-Hip Vital. We started November 1 with the loading dose. In 3 weeks there was a noticeable difference and after 4 weeks Rumple was moving normally, even in the mornings. He was perhaps a bit too well and started playing in the paddock – we always use to joke that he thinks he’s 4 years old, and he seems to have returned to this mentality. On December 1 I reduced the dose to the maintenance dose of 1 scoop, and it only took a few days to notice some stiffness return, so I spoke with Justin, who advised that we can return the loading dose with no risk. As you can see from this photo, taken just after Rumple’s 23rd birthday in late November, he is a picture of health and loves life, and this is how I intend to keep him for a long time to come. I will keep in touch to let you know how we go with the increase back to the loading dose and our journey to keep Rumple as happy and comfortable as possible. Kind Regards,
