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 has definitely improved his performance"

Tyrone is a 21yr old, 14hh, Connemara gelding with an absolutely lovable personality. He is my best buddy. At a young age he had a nasty accident where he went through a fence and was caught upside down in the fencing. He badly damaged his left foreleg and as a result has never been able to reach his full potential. He now has degenerative joint disease in this leg. He is a good little trail riding pony and works very well in straight lines but because of his injury has limited ability to work in deep sandy arenas or on the circle.


He has been given Rose-Hip Vital at the recommended dosage for 3mths and it has definitely improved his performance. He is far more supple and is now able to work in a much more forward manner in the arena. The length of his stride when doing arena work has also improved markedly.


3 weeks ago Tyrone had an accident in the wet, slippery paddock. He did a skid with his front legs and a split with his hind legs and appeared lame on his left hind leg. He was seen by the chiropractor and it was decided that he should be rested for app. 12wks. I doubled his dosage of Rose-Hip Vital and within a week he was moving about the “infirmary” paddock much better than was expected. It is now expected that he will be able to return to light work in 6 – 8wks from his injury rather than 12. This is great news.

“Peanut today has been moving freer and happier to be rode”

I bought this for my 10-year-old mare that has been “crimpled” or “off” for 5 years. She was excellent and super-fast barrel horse at age 4 but when she was 5 she got her halter caught on the trailer, panicked, and pulled back. I believe this messed up her pull which then led to her back and into each over her legs overtime after still competing and training. She started limping but she would favor a different leg every time. I saw a horse on one of your videos that moved a lot like Peanut so I thought “well it’s can’t hurt to try”. Peanut today has been moving freer and happier to be rode, she’s not completely sound yet but she’s getting really close!


I have been very happy with the results!

"I have noticed improvements in his flexion and length of stride"

I have had my 22 year old ex school horse Zed for over 2 years now. Many years ago he had a bad incident with some wire and cut across his off hind, leaving quite a big scar. This resulted in over compensation on his left side, causing the odd shoulder problem, balance issues lifting his legs on the left side and some unsoundness in the fore at times.


In April of this year (2012), Zed managed to cut deeply right across the top of his front right knee. After daily treatment scrubbing back and adding what was necessary, it took three months for the scab to finally come off. Next was the task of getting him back into light work. Around this time, I started Zed on Rose Hip Vital. As it was difficult to pinpoint cartilage damage without a vet consultation, I have relied on Zed’s capabilities with a strict routine. Also being Winter, which is never a good time for an older horse, I had to be sure of what I was noticing.


There was definitely an improvement by the 6 week mark. It was suggested that he stay on the double dose for an extra month, which I found to be worthwhile and he is now on the maintenance dose. Gradually I have noticed improvements in his flexion and length of stride when he is not being lazy. Bearing in mind too, that even though the open wound was no longer, there was still a degree of swelling and soreness. This past weekend (October 2012), Zed has been more forward and was able to complete a Cross Country course (jump poles only) and games day with no after effects the following day. It has taken 6 months of strict, regular work and daily doses of Rose Hip Vital to have my horse back better than he was before.


I look forward to continuing the use of Rose Hip Vital as a maintenance programme for Zed. Overall, although it has been harder from my point of view to report on his progress as I am with him most days, a change has been noticed by others as well. Anne


A further update to my last report in October. Zed is 22 years old and been on RHV since July 2012. At the time of starting, Zed was still recovering from a gash above his knee from April. There was a period of about 1 1/2 months that he would not eat his bowl feeds, so RHV was stopped. This was during the Spring time when the grass was lush. Since being back on it for the same amount of time, I have noticed improvements in his forwardness and recently, his ability to do regular jumping, both in the paddocks and arena and better than he has before with me. The ground is a lot harder at the moment so more likely that he wouldn’t cope as well, but not a problem. I look forward to continuing RHV at the beginning of Winter this year, as that will certainly be a good test for Zed, being the worst of the seasons.
Regards Anne


This being my third testimonial throughout this past year, the big test for RHV was going to be this Winter, due to the fact that we started late July/August 2012 and heading into Spring. Zed, who will be 23 this year, has always been sluggish during the Winter months that I have had him and his hardest time. Quality of work was harder, but that could be the rider who needs to be on RHV. Originally I could report small improvements but nothing substantial from that time. Although the weather has been unusual and despite a small time over the Summer when Zed wasn’t eating his bowl feeds, he has remained on RHV, 6 days, if not 7 days a week. The difference this Winter for me so far, is the joy I am having getting that quality of work needed to keep his muscles built up and the overall picture is looking great.


I do feel that RHV has helped to keep him more supple during this icy weather in the hills of South Australia.

"Within a couple of weeks she looked the picture of glowing health"

My mare suffered a very nasty injury after she impaled herself on a star picket. I knew that she needed every support I could give her during the healing process and I put her straight onto Rose-Hip Vital Equine. Initially, as the wound was so great, progress was slow but she remained healthy and in good spirits, despite the daily needling and confinement. Within a couple of weeks she looked the picture of glowing health and I know Rose-Hip Vital was boosting her immune system, purifying her blood and facilitating in the reduction of inflammation and promoting overall healing. I am convinced that the rapid and complete healing is largely due to this supplement and I highly recommend it for every horse.

"I believe Rose-Hip Vital was a large part of his recovery"

Woodside De Lago AKA Lyle has been with me for just over 3 years now, our journey started in February 2014, Lyle was a 4yo ottb with lots of potential but had lots to work on.


Lyle started his eventing career in march 2014 cruising around the newcomers, I knew at that point he was going to be a special horse, we continued our journey together working our way through the grades with a lot of ups and downs. Lyle finally started to mature and show how talented he was.


In February 2016 Lyle competed his first pre novice at the Wallaby Hill Extravaganza, he truly made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world, jumping around like a seasoned pro! It had finally all come together, with big plans for Lyle in 2016 we focused on our next few events, he just kept getting better and better.


Unfortunately leading up to Equestriad I got a phone call on the morning of Friday 15th of April that Lyle had sustained a leg injury overnight in the paddock! Unsure of what was going on I rushed to be with him. Once I arrived we slowly walked him down to the wash bay, it was horrible to see him in such pain he could barely walk. Initially the vets and I thought he had just gotten cellulitis, so we started treating him for that. Including all the normal veterinary treatment, we also put him straight onto Rose-Hip Vital.


Once the swelling started to come down over next 3 days we could see something wasn’t right with his leg, immediately Lyle was taken into the clinic and had an ultrasound, the feeling that you get when you’re looking at the screen and not being able to tell where the tendon begins and ends is gut wrenching.



Images taken from the first scan


The prognosis wasn’t good at all. Lyle had managed to rupture and detach his tendon sheath and tear the extensor and flexor tendons. His future wasn’t looking bright, I had some of the best vets in the country agree his future was not going to be what we wanted, no jumping and they would be surprised if he became 100% sound again under saddle. We were going to do a follow up scan in 3 months and at least 6-12 months recovering in the yard. I was heart-broken.


So we took Lyle home put him in his yard and along with equine shock wave we had Lyle on a high dose of Rose-Hip Vital. 11 weeks after the initial scan we went back in to rescan and we could not have asked for a better result. He may return to light work walk and trot, we were all in utter shock! Not only was I told he may never come back into work or jump again but then to be told 11 weeks later that there is no reason why he shouldn’t be able to event again. It was such a sensational moment!



Before and after images


I believe Rose-Hip Vital was a large part of his recovery and I could not describe how important it is to believe in the strengths of today’s new treatment options. To know that yes it may look like it can all be over in such a short space of time but understand that with the most outstanding new treatment options you must never say never, don’t give up on your best friend because believe me they will surprise you in many ways.


Stay tuned for part 2 of Woodside De Lago’s journey, it definitely does not end there!
