I needed vit C for my pony with respiratory problems.  Rosehips are naturally full of vit C and biotin.  They were chopped which blended easily in the feed and very palatable. . Ideal substitute until fresh rosehips are available.

I wanted vitamin C for my ponies during their respiratory difficulties. The chopped rosehips were well received by the ponies who ate their feed in one go. They like them very much.

Very good quality product. Competitively priced which is made even better by money saving offers and paper bags rather than plastic tubs.

Have bought a refill as really rated the first rosehip supplement I bought.  Horse seemed to enjoy the taste and I noticed a difference in his stiffness. Saved me having to go down the Danilon route.

Quality product.  My horse always seeks out the rose hips in the hedgerow so why not feed it to her al year round.   She knows what she needs.
Elizabeth - 07/08/2019 20:57
Well packaged and a really high quality product. Palatable too for a fussy eater. Combined this product with BestFlex HA and it seems to be working as hoped!
Trusted Feefo Customer - 02/08/2019 04:56
My farrier suggested rosehips to improve hooves and they have certainly improved my horses hooves. No longer are they constantly cracking and breaking and loosing shoes. They are now healthy and sound.

They are also used to help support strong healthy hoof growth, to help with circulation, and commonly for joint health.

According to Page-Self (2006), Rosehips provide a readily available source of vitamin C, so can help support the immune system. They are an excellent spring tonic especially when fed with nettle leaf and can be fed to support health during times of fatigue. As they are a mild laxative, they can be useful to aid digestion. As a mild diuretic, they can be helpful to support kidney and bladder health. As a mild astringent, they can be helpful for loose droppings. As they are high in (bio)flavonoids, they can help with oxidative stress which is present in any living tissue, but higher during periods of illness.

A number of clinical studies involving humans with osteoarthritis have looked into the effectiveness of Rosehips.  The patients were given a product that contains an extract from Rosehips. This research was reviewed in 2007 and the conclusion was "Rosehip powder had a moderate effect in patients with osteoarthritis". There was a reduction in taking "rescue medication" after taking the Rosehip extract product for over three months.

Consult your veterinarian first if you have concerns about your horse or pony's joint mobility.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight. Introduce to the horse's diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Rosehips are a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
