"I believe Rose-Hip Vital Equine does what it says it does, and I will continue to use the product"

It has been 4 months since I purchased my first lot of Rose-Hip Vital Equine. I have also included my family both immediate and extended who have all been taking the human version of the product for the same time.

By way of background I have a horse based business, agistment, breeding (warmbloods, and thoroughbreds), coaching, and competing both with dressage horses and as a racehorse owner.

I personally have never used a feed additive for my horses, principally because of my clients who feed many and varied feed additive supplements I have never seen one indicator either in their appearance or in their way of going or working to indicate any improvement or benefit or otherwise.

The horses that I put on the product were as follows:

  1. An aged dressage horse with no noticeable soundness issues often tricky to ride and with contact issues at times
  2. A young dressage horse with no soundness issues
  3. An aged show horse with some minor soundness issues
  4. An aged dressage horse with arthritic changes in the knees and hocks
  5. Incumblonde a racehorse mare some ability, has had a consistent skin rash
  6. Deux Foix a horse with ability, some soundness issues
  7. An aged warmblood stallion (northern ariel) arthritic deterioration in the hocks

The results are:

Horse number 1 started in winter as they all did, after 2 weeks there was a considerable change in the horses coat condition it looked like a summer coat. To ride he felt amazing very soft and supple and considerably less issues with the contact.

Horse number 2 similarly his coat bloomed, he did start to feel very well, and I had to reduce his food intake, he is competing successfully with wins at official novice level.

Horse number 3 again the coat improved within a couple of weeks, and watching her being worked she was clearly more comfortable in her action than I had seen previously.

Horse number 4 again the coat condition was the first indicator, she is a horse that is on pentosan, so apart from the healthier appearance I haven’t noticed a difference in her way of going.


Incumblonde has raced successfully to wins and placings during the time she has been on the product, and the rash that she has had for over a year has gone.

Deux Foix has returned to racing for 2 wins and placings.

I am aware of another horse in our trainer’s stables that has had quite a form reversal since commencing on the rosehip vital equine, and has notched up several wins since going on the product. The stallion has struggled in recent years to serve the taller mares, we are part the way through the stud season, and not only does he look magnificent, but he is definitely appears more comfortable bearing weight on his hocks even with the tall mares.

As for the humans all are reporting increased energy and mobility. I believe Rose-Hip Vital Equine does what it says it does, and I will continue to use the product both for the horses and for myself.
