"His coat looks amazing and he is healthier and happier than he has been in a long time"

I just wanted to update you on my horses and the effect that Rosehip Vital is having on them.

Firstly my older horse Riley who has had more ailments than most horses on this planet and is a real survivor.

Riley 5 years ago was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He had a large aggressive fast growing tumor growing above his eyelid at the back of his eye. After seeking a 2nd opinion we found a surgeon who agreed to operate to try and remove the tumor. It took 3 operations and many doses of chemo and radiation but several months later he was cancer free and back competing. Sadly a few months later Riley fractured his front leg. It was a high fracture of the splint bone and quite a big fracture. The same surgeon who had treated him for his cancer again operated and put a plate and 4 screws into Riley’s leg. After months of being boxed the plate was removed and 6 months later Riley came back into light work. After all his body had endured it was unlikely that he would be able to compete again.

Fast forward to 2014 and Riley seemed to be in good health so we decided to do some low level jumping and see how he went. All was going well until Riley started to develop eye ulcers that just wouldn’t heal. He endured 3 further eye operations but they just kept recurring. After his last operation in July Sara Madden a good friend of mine suggested that I put Riley onto Rose-Hip Vital which we did straight away. The good news is that not only has Riley stayed Ulcer free since July, he looks better than ever and is back out competing in Eventing at prelim/pre novice and winning ribbons. His coat looks amazing and he is healthier and happier than he has been in a long time. The interesting thing is that we have done nothing different other than give him Rosehip Vital.

We have another horse Fairbanks Cappucino that is ridden by a professional rider Andrew Cooper. Following the results that we were seeing with Riley we have now put her onto Rosehip Vital as part of her preparation for The Australian International Horse Trials in Adelaide later this month. Cappucino is competing in the 2* Event. She too is looking fabulous and amazingly the mud fever that she had in one leg has now cleared up.

Obviously we are very happy with the results that we are getting with Rosehip Vital and will continue to promote the benefits to those around us.


Since we last spoke I have actually competed at Melbourne International Horse Trials in the 1* Class. This has always been a dream of mine so to have actually competed and placed 20th out of a field of 75 was an amazing experience.

My 2nd horse Riley has now been free of eye ulcers for 12 months which is incredible given that prior to starting him on Rose-Hip Vital he underwent 4 operations to try and stop them.

Lastly our old horse that started on Rose-Hip Vital only 3 months ago is now back being ridden again by a young girl who is having great fun on him. Prior to this he was retired and very stiff to the point we had considered having him put down. He is very happy in his new home and they are going to keep him on Rose-Hip Vital as they are thrilled with the results.

The eventing season will begin again in August and having successfully made it to 1* my aim will be to head towards 2* either later this year or early next year which means keeping my horses in peak condition.

Interestingly Cappy was one of the few horses that wasn’t clipped for Melbourne. There were lots of comments on her beautiful coat and how we achieved it so Rose-Hip Vital got lots of promotion over that time.
