Elite Equine and Monday Morning Disease (Tying-up)
What became known as Monday Morning Disease (‘tying-up’) is a condition that was first associated with work horses that enjoyed a day of rest and a regular grain ration on Sundays. Once they again took up their work the following morning, they began tying-up, which was evidenced by such symptoms as stiff muscles, cramping, unreasonable sweating, rapid breathing, and a general unwillingness to move.
Generally speaking, tying-up is a collection of symptoms that apply to any one of a number of muscle conditions. There are three overall kinds that fall under the umbrella of tying-up disease:
- Sporadic occurrences (in horses that performed well prior to the incident)
- Chronic condition (in horses that have repeatedly displayed symptoms)
- Recurrent illness (in thoroughbred and Arabian horses mostly) 
In horses, rosehips have been specifically used to improve the growth of hooves, assist in the rehabilitation of kidney and adrenal function and as a preventative for ‘tying-up’ [Monday Morning Disease]. 
Routine usage [of rosehip] will completely rehabilitate kidneys weakened by stress and/or the regular use of electrolytes or diuretics. 
Elite Equine is produced from 100% organic rosehip and picked by hand high in the mountains of Lesotho. As an easy-to-use, once-a-day supplement, Elite Equine will make your Monday Mornings a whole lot rosier.
