A spring tonic

The fruits (hips) of the Wild Briar or Briar Rose (Fructus cynosbati) are picked when ripe in the autumn months and then gently dried and crushed to make them easier for the horse to digest. Traditionally, Rosehips have been used as a conditioning spring tonic as they provide a rich source of vitamins and antioxidants. They have also been used to help support healthy hoof growth, and soothe aching joints.

This product has 12 months shelf life.
