PULSATING ELECTRO MAGNETIC FIELD
WE WERE INTRODUCED TO MAGNETIC THERAPY BACK IN 2000 AND DEMONSTRATED IT’S USE AT CLINICS AND CONVENTIONS FOR FARRIER AND OWNERS ALIKE FOR MANY YEARS.

In the last ten years, the Magna Wave Equine Wellness Technology Company has been designing and representing their NEW system of PULSE fields that you can actually observe and feel as the magnetic field hovers over the body.

PEMF+demonstrated+by+Dan+Marcum+at+the+Farrers+National+Research+Center+5.7.19+Slide+3.jpg
PEMF demonstrated by Dan Marcum at the Farrers National Research Center 5.7.19 Slide 6.JPG

HERE ARE THEIR FINDINGS:

**Anything that disrupts our body's own natural magnetic fields impairs cell metabolism which contributes to cell dysfunction.
**The Magnetic Field helps to speed up cell metabolism by improving oxygenation of the blood stream. 

*PEMF stimulates cell metabolism causing a chain of responses in the body leading to improved health.

*PEMF works to improve circulation and cell metabolism.

*PEMF HELPS HORSES BY:

General Overall Relaxation and Increased Range of Motion allowing the horse to stretch out their hind quarters, necks, and front limbs. Easier for the owner in conditioning the horse for and after events, just simple riding and we use it to help the horse prepare for the farrier’s services.

There is an apparent relaxing of the vascular system within minutes of completing the session (10-20 minutes) which could serve to drop or improve blood pressure.

Promotes:
* Calm and Relaxed attitude while relaxing muscles
* Increases Circulation      *Improves Energy
* Arthritis Relief and Inflammation Reduction
* Stimulates Hoof Growth and can bring a hoof abscess to the surface.
*Boosting cellular metabolism by      *Regenerating blood cells

The Magna Wave company is the unit we use. We have included it in the Equine Flexion Therapy courses with Instructor Dan Marcum as shown here on May 7, 2019. Dan is a Certified PEMF Expert with the Manga Wave company.

Horse owners can reserve a session for their horses, visit and observe and become involved in the Equine Flexion Therapy Courses by calling the School at

A Hobby Turns Into a Career

Ginger C.

Becoming a farrier was nothing short of a spur of the moment decision for CCCHS senior, Ben Young.

Aside from focusing on school and clubs, Young runs a business as a farrier in his spare time. A farrier is a craftsman who trims and shoes horses’ hooves. Although Young had his mother as a role model in order to become successful in animal care, it wasn’t until he was fourteen that he knew he wanted to pursue a career in farrier work. After Young’s own horses started becoming lame, he started research into farriery in an effort to treat them. Success with his horses led him to decide to make a career of caring for horses.

Young states, “Eighty-nine percent of all horse health issues happen in the lower limb. That 89% is what I am trained to treat.” After being certified with The Brotherhood of Working Farrier Association, or BWFA, Young began working as an apprentice with more experienced farriers.Young also received his EFT, or Equine Flexion Therapy certification. The EFT certification allows Young to perform therapy on horses in order to keep them more flexible and comfortable, aligning the spine without chiropractic adjustments and addressing the muscles that control the skeleton.

It wasn’t until 2017 that his work started to flourish, causing him to work harder than before. More recently, Young has submitted and completed research regarding, “Navicular,” or, “Navicular Syndrome.” Navicular Syndrome, also known as Navicular Disease, most commonly describes an inflammation or degeneration of the navicular bone and its surrounding tissues, usually on the front feet. This disease can lead to significant and even disabling lameness. Young’s research may prove paramount in treating this serious disease.

Despite his age, Young overcame the doubt he faced, pushing forward with the encouragement of his instructor, certified Master Farrier and Master Educator, Link Casey. When asked if he would recommend working as a farrier to others, Young replied, “I would for a certain type of person.” According to Young, being a farrier is one of those careers where “You can set your own hours, or work when you want, as some people put it. Even though I don’t completely agree with that statement, I work twice as hard because of it; it is worth it in my opinion. But anyone that is successful working for themselves would tell you the same thing. If you can manage your time extremely well and aren’t afraid to put yourself out there to make tough business decisions, then I would highly recommend it.”

Working as a farrier has bettered him, in the sense that he has the satisfaction of being able to help people and horses.  Young states that his favorite part of working as a farrier is, “Being able to see people with a lame horse and have it sound again.”

Hoof Cracks

Ginger C.

Repairing Hoof Cracks in Horses Hooves by a Professional Farrier

The smallest of cracks can equal the largest of problems. Hoof cracks can be very detrimental to the health and soundness of your horse. Bacteria eats away at the live tissue under the hoof wall and can eventually cause lameness if neglected to treat. The condition of the hoof itself can deteriorate and cause major issues and difficulty to keep horse shoes on, unhealthy hoof wall and in some cases lack of performance with the horse. So, the smallest of cracks can be a big issue in any horse’s hoof. It is highly recommended to have your farrier check your horses’ hooves if there is a crack present to determine what corrective procedure is needed.

As soon as the hoof cracks and the thrush is present it becomes difficult to keep it clean unless opened properly by the farrier.

Horse owners – Do not attempt to do this. Let the professionals handle it. It can be overdone.

Owners are WELCOME to contact us, send photos, etc for advice and to find farrier services near you.

The Winning Horse

Ginger C.

winning horse pic.png

In 1988 we began an all-out study, on not just sound shoeing, but maintaining the sound horse to allow him to perform at his peak. Horse owners began bringing us their horses to evaluate. Many at one time had the chance to be champions whether it be in cutting, running barrels, hunter jumper events, racing, and on and on. In our evaluations, we would discover that the most important part of the horse had been overlooked and neglected. These horses had received too many improper trims! And further evaluations showed that neither the amateur person trimming, nor the owner knew what they were trying to achieve with each trim or shoeing their particular horse.
