MagnaWave Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) therapy is a massage at the cellular level. Every organ in our body produces it’s own bio-electromagnetic field. Using PEMF is a way to enhance those energy fields to stimulate cell metabolism, increase oxygenation, and reduce inflammation, thereby reducing pain and promoting healing. We are fully certified and taking new clients (horses, dogs, livestock, and pet owners) at your farm, Maple Ridge Farm, or horse shows!

Our mission is to provide a safe, fun, premier learning environment to help clients reach their riding goals and become proficient horsemen.

Students are encouraged to participate in our show team in order to complete their learning experience, gain new skills, ride horses under new circumstances, and set goals for themselves and their horse. We attends at least two shows a month, year-round, mostly barrel races, open shows, fun shows, and occasionally reining shows.
