As part of her BSc degree course in herbal medicine our herbalist was required to undertake clinical studies. Hilary took the opportunity to trial a single herb Vitex agnus castus on a group of 50 elderly ponies. In response to the findings of this trial she then formulated Vitex Plus. Owners have reported excellent results with this mix especially with older horses and ponies who struggle to shed their coats in Spring/Summer.

 At 3 x 50ml scoops per day, 2.2lb should last approx 23 days, costing approx $2.26 per day

My 7 yr old Quantock pony was diagnosed with Cushings in September 2012 as a 6 year old. The vet said he wasn't treatable and was pushing me to Euthanase him. I am a Veterinary Nurse and was determined not to let my 6yr old horse down. He started drug therapy immediately and I emailed the experts at Hilton herbs for any help and advice they could offer. We started him on Rest and Recover Gold (Rest Easy USA) and Cush X (Vitex Plus) and the results have been incredible. A hot headed youngster became cool and calm on his 8 months of box rest and his body, coat, lameness and feet condition improved dramatically, and is still improving. He has now been out grazing like a normal horse for the last 3 months. I canít thank Hilton Herbs enough for their help and support at such a difficult time, and can only rate these two products, and the company very highly. Literally a life saver.

My horse was diagnosed with cushings in late fall. As much as I was against Pergolide I gave it a try. Within a 2 days she was miserable and had 3 of the side effects. I was told nothing else would work. I had researched the Vitex Plus previously and brought it up to my vet, you can imagine the answer. I went with my gut, it made sense to me! She is doing great and has shed any of the long hairs that were hanging on. I purchased it in it's natural state and mix it with wet rice bran and chopped carrot. I do grind a scoop at a time in a grinder to make it a little finer in mixing. She eats all up, what a relief as she is very picky. I had heard some horses find it not palatable. When my order arrived included in it was a sample of the herb balls. Have to say she loved them and I have since ordered a tub of them.
