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!

"It was the best decision we ever made!"

 


When Chocolate came into our care she was diagnosed with Cushings Disease, Metabolic issues causing Chronic Diarrhoea, anemia and dermatitis. She also had almost no teeth. She lost a lot of weight very quickly and her muscles deteriorated. She eventually could not stand up by herself. I was researching equine supplements and came across Rose Hip Vital and although the price was up there we decided to give it a go. It was the best decision we ever made! We added 3/4 scoop daily to her new diet and within 2 weeks she was able to stand up by herself and walk very slowly. After a month, she was able to Trot and Canter. We have been using Rose Hip Vital for 11 weeks and she is able to Jump and Gallop. She’s a completely different pony. Her coat is shiny,  her skin has cleared up drastically and her energy levels have skyrocketed. We have not stopped recommending Rose Hip Vital. This product has improved the quality of Chocolate’s life significantly and it is well worth the price!

"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!

"It really has been the supplement that he has been missing and needs"


I really do love this product my horse Charlie has really liked the taste of it from day one. He was showing signs of improvement when we started this in the beginning of March but he has such bad arthritis that once I took him off the loading dose he has seemed to slip back into pain and lameness. I have since increased the dose back to the loading dose and have added back in his prescription pain meds to see if we can see any changes. That was about 2 weeks ago, so far no change. I feel that I found this product a little too late in his arthritis game, but I have not given up on this yet. I totally believe that it is helping him out just due to how bad off he was before starting this product. It really has been the supplement that he has been missing and needs. I had slowly started to remove some of his other meds and stuff and now adding them back to see if I just took stuff away too soon in hopes of just needing this one only; Rose-Hip Vital. However we are still working with all his stuff to make sure he is comfortable until we get it right on to what he needs to be as good as a 27 year old retired rodeo/4/trail horse can get. He has been pretty babied all his life so trying to keep him as healthy and happy as long as I can. He has been my best friend and done so much for me its the least I can do for him. We both definitely think this product has saved him and given him if only months longer if not maybe a few more years but it has definitely made him more comfortable and way better movement that he has in the past 6 months. I found out he has advanced Cushings as well, so we are definitely working hard to keep this old man comfy and happy he has a 3 year old little girl that loves hanging with him so we are doing our best to make their summer last more than just one more if at all possible. Will continue with this product as long as I can just now with his age and how bad he was to start I have to be realistic about things but I will never give up or let him down and we are so glad we found this product so now I don't have to. I am very happy with what I have seen in the past month just now it will take time and with time they say can heal all things.

"I feel that it has helped his liver recover and regenerate, and boosted his immune system which was severely depleted"

About 4 mths ago I was given a small sample of Rose-Hip Vital to try on an old dog that was having tramadol daily for mobility and pain relief. Ivy is 16 and within days I noticed a big improvement and was able to stop tramadol treatment and just use rhv. Ivy could run and play again, panting stopped because of being out of pain.

The old horse which was touch and go to survive after a serious but mystery illness, has made a remarkable recovery (the vet was very surprised!). Once he started eating again I re-introduced Rose-Hip Vital powder at the loading dose for 3 weeks and have just reduced it to the maintenance dose. I did not put him back on the MSM and Glucosamine so I can get an accurate reading of his progress on just Rose-Hip Vital. He is also now on Cushings medication. I am pleased to say that he is “blooming” with health, eating really well and recovered the weight he lost during the illness. His previous soundness issues (in front) are reduced but not gone, and he is moving much better behind. The major improvement is in his attitude, he is keen to “march” out to his paddock, something he has not done for several years, and my husband has recently started riding him again and has commented that he is “ keen to work” , which is not usual for this horse. I know that the Cushings medication could also be contributing to his new found energy, but feel that Rose-Hip Vital is helping considerably. I feel that it has helped his liver recover and regenerate, and boosted his immune system which was severely depleted by the Cushings disease, infection and antibiotics.
