Rose-Hip Vital

Alex & Tim Boland being interviewed about the benefits of Rose-Hip Vital by Amanda Ross for Equestrian Life TV @ Melbourne International 3 Day Event:

Rose-Hip Vital® has recently come on board as sponsors of both myself, (Alex Townsend) & Michelle Robson and the horses here at Wallaby Hill and we are so grateful. We have been using Rose-Hip Vital® for approximately a year now and can genuinely state that with or without the sponsorship we would still continue to use their great products, Equine, Canine & human.

All our competition horses are on Rose-Hip Vital® and we have noticed a marked change in the following:

  • Legs are less puffy and less prone to swelling 
  • Coats glossier and less prone to rashes and reactions
  • Faster hoof growth
  • Less colds and snotty noses through the winter
  • Overall consistency in health and well being

The hounds of Wallaby Hill are all derivatives of labradors, no one is quite sure how pure bred they are; but they are all prone to the common labrador arthritic complaints. Since Rose-Hip Vital® Canine has been added to their diet, it appears joint complaints no longer hinder their daily activities and they forever in and out of dams and paddocks as if age were never a factor. 


Rose-Hip Vital® for humans is a personal must. I have been on Rose-Hip Vital® for about the same amount of time as the horses, and am noticeably less creaky. I also notice when I have forgotten to take it for a couple of days or more as the creakiness reappears. I have noted that my hair and nails grow quicker and this year I have not been prone to the usual colds and snotty noses that come with winter riding. For those of you who may not know I recently had a nasty accident at Melbourne 3 Day Event, being knocked off my horse mid cross country course by an errant tree branch. I sustained multiple fractures & breaks not to mention multiple lacerations to my face, which required intensive stitching. 2 weeks later my face had virtually fully recovered from all scabs and scarring, displaying an insanely fast rate of recovery. By the end of the first week I was off all pain medication. While I can't thank the doctors and nurses at the Royal Melbourne Hospital enough for their excellent care, I genuinely believe Rose-Hip Vital® played an integral part in this remarkably speedy recovery, long may it continue.
