Sheer Etiquette (Ellie)

CONDITION: Joint Pain
RIDER: Susan Paix's
LOCATION: AUS

In 2011 we started competing at Grand Prix International, unfortunately arthritic changes and stiffness set in for Ellie and we sadly decided to retire. Six months ago I started Ellie on Rose-Hip Vital. The change is unbelievable. 

Ellie is better now than when she was competing. Ellie and I are going back into competition at the ripe age of 20. This is so exciting!

Life is too short to be unhealthy. Thank you Rose-Hip Vital!

Little Red

AGE: 21
CONDITION: Arthritis
LOCATION: AUS


"After just a week on Rose Hip Vital, we were amazed at how much Little Red was improving!"

 


Little Red started showing early signs of arthritis and joint problems when she began limping. We were shocked though at how fast her condition worsened. She went from limping to hobbling and soon she didn’t even want to move around. Most of the day she would be lying on her side because it was too painful for her to even stand. At this point we were seriously thinking about the possibility of having to put her to sleep.


After just a week on Rose Hip Vital, we were amazed at how much Little Red was improving! She was no longer lying down during the day and she was moving around a lot more easily. After 8 weeks, Little Red was looking like her old self again! She is now moving around freely and is so much happier! We are continuing her on a maintenance dosage and looking forward to taking her out for some light rides!

Mia

AGE: Over 15
CONDITION: Arthritis 
LOCATION: AUS


"The difference in our elderly pony is amazing"

 

 

We got Mia a couple of years ago as a companion for our elderly pony who suffers from laminitis and has to be kept separated from our other horses in a paddock with limited grass. We didn’t know much about Mia’s background apart from the fact that she was also elderly. Ever since we got her she struggled with her mobility. We assumed like our other pony that it was due to laminitis and gave her the appropriate supplements and medication to treat that. Unlike our other pony she just wasn’t responding to the treatment for laminitis. We had her on a low sugar/starch diet, Founderguard and Bute which weren't working. We noticed that her stiffness seemed to be worse in the morning and cold weather so got an equine body worker to do an assessment on her. She confirmed that Mia had arthritis in her right hip.


We had been using Rose-Hip Vital for a couple of years on our 25 year old horse and 15 year old dog after seeing a testimonial for it on Facebook. They had both had great results with Rose-Hip Vital so we decided to try it with Mia. Within two weeks she was walking much better and within six weeks she was walking normally. Now after 10 weeks she is trotting around the paddock. The difference in our elderly pony is amazing. She is no longer on any treatment or medication for laminitis. Rose-Hip Vital has worked so well for Mia we’ve also put our other elderly pony, Cupcake, on it and have noticed a huge improvement in her mobility also.

Creamy

AGE: 17
CONDITION: Arthritis
LOCATION: AUS


"He is happy to move forward and trot freely"

 

 

Creamy is a one in a million horse with a big heart and loads of capability.

 

In three years, he has taken our 8 year old son from a beginner rider to a campdraft champion.

 

At 17 years of age, he has an old injury and has suffered arthritis for many years. In recent months, his gait has become rigid and he is reluctant to move forward.

 

After 6 weeks on Rose Hip Vital, Creamy had much improved fluidity in his joints and appeared much more comfortable in his gait.

 

At 8 weeks he just keeps getting better! He is happy to move forward and trot freely. So wonderful to see this pair continue their adventures together.

"Thank you for a very clean, natural product that is simple and effective."


I met my horse Snowy 10 years ago at a horse rescue where I volunteered. He was very angry, scared, and wild after being rescued from the slaughter truck. He's somewhere in his 30s, and he's quite arthritic and uncomfortable from previous abuse and injuries. Since he can no longer be ridden, he's my "big dog" living his best retirement. I've worked with him over the years with natural horsemanship techniques to bring him out of his shell and to help him understand that not all people are mean and that he is not bad.

The story goes that he was a pack horse for an outfitter in the Sierra Mountains. He stumbled and fell down the trail with packs on his back, and he was not properly cared for or given adequate time to heal. They sold their horses at a slaughter auction when the economy and their business tanked so they could get just a little more money out of them.

After that horrific ordeal, he has turned into a very sweet, loving, and (mostly!) well-mannered horse, but he can still be reactive to unseen demons at any time. ;-) His left side and hind quarters in particular were injured, breaking some ribs along with his withers, injuring his neck, and permanently damaging his hind leg. ...And he means the world to me!

In addition to resulting arthritis, he's metabolic, has Cushings, and has outlived the use of his teeth, so he's kinda high maintenance. I know he hurts and won't live forever, but for now he's happy and healthy, and I want the best I can provide for him while he blesses me with his presence.

Last summer he was having problems getting up from the ground. It was quite concerning, and, in as positive a manner as possible, the vet prepared us for a dark future if it didn't improve.

That's when I started him on Rose-Hip Vital. After a couple of months, he had more energy and could get up from the ground much more easily. Weekdays he gets turnout with his next-stall "frenemy" Mas(erati) or a walk in the Eurociser, and he gets almost-daily walks from my friend and me (when I can do it).

Thank you for a very clean, natural product that is simple and effective. I want Snowy in my life for as long as possible!

"If we didn't run out of Rose-Hip Vital we would NEVER have known about the arthritis."


I purchased Summer 23/7/22, she was severely underweight. Once getting her in hard ground I noticed swelling in her hind off side leg where the superficial tendon is located. After some research I decided that putting her on Rose-Hip Vital would assist with recovery and swelling along with movement. It worked amazing! She was running around the paddock kicking her legs and have a great time within 3 weeks of starting on Rose-Hip Vital.


12 months later we started full work after an appropriate amount of rehab time and spelling for improvement of condition. One month I ran out of Rose-Hip Vital and was behind in my order, so she went without for 2 weeks, in this period I noticed lameness in her front legs. After a full veterinary examination it was determined she has arthritic coffin joints. If we didn't run out of Rose-Hip Vital we would NEVER have known about the arthritis. It was amazing to know that the Rose-Hip Vital worked so well with her inflammation and pain that I was unable to know about the arthritis.


After some correction of feet veterinary care and double dosage of Rose-Hip Vital she improved drastically and she is moving sound again. I'm so thankful for the Rose-Hip Vital and couldn't imagine how much pain she would have been in if she didn't have her daily dosage.

Love this and I have both of my horses on it! We are on our second 5lb tub. Using one scoop in am and pm feeding. So they both get two scoops a day and I feel like it has really helped. Both were rescued one severely abused and the other severely neglected. Really bought for my 33 year old mare. Arthritis and ringbone. But ended up using it on my 15 year old rescue with a previous stifle injury and they have both been doing amazing. They also seem so much happier. Under the winter coat was a beautiful shiny coat on both horses. I have one that is picky about powder supplements but she eats it all up. I am hearing less cracking in my mare's walk, she is rearing to go and doesn't want to stop. There are too many good changes that I have seen to remember them all but I am so glad that I took the risk of trying this supplement because it is a miracle worker. Everyone asks me what my secret is and I tell them that part of it I feel is using your product. So, I hope that by word of mouth you get some new customers. Again thank you for being an outstanding company.

"I’ve had her on the Rose-Hip Vital now for just over 6 weeks and I can see a big difference in her movements."


Nimbus is such a special horse. She has had many owners over the years and most of them have been in touch with me. She was a pony club horse that won many ribbons for many children. She was then a Riding for the Disabled pony. This is how we can work out her age as the “ children” who rode her are now adults with their own children. After she was retired for Riding for the Disabled she was then a bit forgotten about in a paddock on her own. This was when she was passed on to me 3 years ago. I have a sort of rescue farm with lots of animals that people are unable to care for.


Nimbus has been a delight, she only has a few teeth so she gets a warm mash twice a day with Rose-Hip Vital. She has a mini pony paddock friend and they are inseparable. She ‘talks'/grumbles a lot and also farts a lot. When I got her she could only walk a few steps due to the arthritis in her legs. I’ve had her on the Rose-Hip Vital now for just over 6 weeks and I can see a big difference in her movements. Nimbus is trotting for the first time in years. This morning she trotted for about 20 metres. Pretty amazing. Many thanks for a great product!
