Sheer Etiquette (Ellie)

RIDER: Susan Paix's

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!

"The improvement has been nothing short of phenomenal! Our vet is amazed!"




Severley ruptured CL in a Limousin stud bull. Severely lame could not walk at all. Prognosis was no cure and euthanasia recommended as this injury advised not repairable. Bovine specialists were also consulted who advised same. Discussions with vet pre my decision to try RHV raised concerns that bovine stomach would likely not allow absorption of product. We started administering RHV, figured nothing to lose and the improvement has been nothing short of phenomenal! Our vet is amazed! This bull could barely walk at all, he was severely and horrifically immobile and lame. The improvement so far had been absolutely remarkable!! After approx 6 weeks of treatment he made a significant, noticeable and phenomenal improvement with full mobility, and gait, covering large strides comfortably (though some impediment). He also seems much happier, comfortable, and more his normal self. I have also noticed his overall condition has improved considerably. The difference between him pre treatment, and now is simply unbelievable! Thank you.


Letter from Veterinarian Dr Scott Bissaker BVSc 14/04/2022:

To whom it may concern,

I presented to Mr and Mrs Sutcliffe’s property on the 22nd of December, 2021 to examine Man O Man, a mature Limousin Bull for acute right hind lameness. On physical examination, he was found to have marked (grade 4) right hind lameness, right stifle instability and joint effusion consisten with, and thus presumptive diagnosis of, craniel cruciate rupture. Unfortunately, the prognosis for this type of injury is poor with most individuals humanely euthanized.

There are experimental studies in the USA showing promising resluts for surgical repair however we could not find anyone in Australia performing these surgeries here and this medical management was the only option available to Man O Man. Traditionally medical management of these cases included anti-inflammatory pain relief and strict confinement for up to 6 months. Oral supplements used in other species are often found to be ineffective in Ruminant species due to microflora action in the forestomach, thus resulting in poor bioavailability to the patient.

Mrs Sutcliffe researched and proposed using Rose Hip during his recovery and due to the above reasoning, I was skeptical of its effects. Man O Man has been on Rose Hip supplementation for a couple of months now and I’m happy to report his clinical picture is much improved. His lameness, despite still being present, has improved dramatically and he appears to be moving much more freely and sure footed.

I would be interested to see any previous, current or future studies on the use of Rose Hip in cattle for not only traumatic orthopeadic injuries but also for degenerative diseases.

Kind regards,

Dr Scott Bissaker BVSc

Raven Man O Man M617 on Rose-Hip Vital Equine


AGE: 6
CONDITION: Stringhalt

“He is definitely moving much more freely and jerking hind leg action is virtually non-existent”.



At the time of this video, late November 2019, was when i began to trial Rosehip Vital in his diet

I actually was seeing improvement a few weeks before i took this video, but as I was pretty sceptical, wanted to leave it a bit longer to make sure he didn’t relapse, lol. As seen, he is definitely moving much more freely, and jerking hind leg action is virtually non-existent. During the time he was supplemented on rosehip vital, I continued the massage therapy, but no other changes or supplements were made to diet.

“We struggle to keep up with him now!”




Our pony was intermittently lame and stiff. This often meant that he was unable to be ridden and my daughter would have to miss pony club rallies. After much we made some minor changes to his feed and got out our Vet.

We invested in hoof X-Rays which resulted in some minor changes to how our farrier was trimming our pony. Our vet told us despite these changes which would improve the situation that we would most likely need to keep our pony on anti-inflammatory medication for the rest of his life.

I introduced Rosehip Vital while he was still on the medication and gradually decreased the anti-inflammatory medication. I’ve kept him on the Rosehip Vital powder daily in his feed and we struggle to keep up with him on foot at pony club now.

He has not needed any medication for months now and is a much happier pony.

“After 3 weeks on Rose-Hip Vital, Blaze is so much more forward and willing!”




 Since purchasing Blaze in March 2019, he has been having some performance issues. I had a vet check done; they couldn’t find any issues. He gets regular massages, which he loves! But they don’t seem to help relieve his stiffness much and he saw a chiropractor who said he couldn’t really find any obvious reason for his stiffness. I noticed he was worse, very jerky and stiff going downhill and would often be very hesitant or refuse to go downhill.  

My chiropractor suggested I try Blaze on some joint formula, and I had seen Rosehip Vital advertised and after I watched a couple of videos and read some reviews I decided to give it a go.  

After 3 weeks on Rose-Hip Vital, Blaze is so much more forward and willing! In addition to being a more willing partner, I believe Rose-Hip Vital helped improve his overall condition. He is looking amazing! I definitely recommend this product to anyone who’s horse is having performance issues or is suffering from any joint related pain.

“Flighty is now able to trot and canter to her full potential!”




Flighty’s condition before taking rose hip vital was that she would short step on her right hind leg. And could not trot nor canter properly.

Since taking rose hip vital Flighty is now able to trot and canter to her full potential.

We are now also working cattle to get ready for our cutting season next year.


CONDITION: Navicular


“Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great!”



I turned Tatta out for about 4 months, took his shoes off, he was fine. When I started bringing him back into work he was lame.I got him shod, still lame. Had the chiropractor out, still lame. Then we went to the vet for x-rays which showed early stages of navicular.

Vet suggested cortisone injections and corrective shoeing.
One injection once a week for 4 weeks and then once a month after that. He had a total of 5. They hardly helped.

Then I got Rose-Hip Vital Equine after seeing before and after videos on Facebook. At the 3 week mark in the video I was still half way through my first 1.5kg tub.

He now has wedges on and rubber wedges in between the hoof and the shoe (he always had wedges on in the past).

I was ready for his early retirement; he was starting to look and feel like a garden ornament. Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great.
