Using the latest technology to benefit your horse

Activo-Med Wave-Light-Pulse (WLP) laser therapy is available onsite and can be used on muscular, tendon and ligament injuries, bumps, bruises, oedemas, wounds and arthritis. WLP represents a quantum leap in direct local therapy, putting conventional laser technology in the shade. The pulsed electromagnetic and light cluster is a powerful combination of 24 infrared and 24 red diodes together with in-built Pulsed Electromagnetic spool. It is fully adjustable by intensity and frequency and is based on the latest supralight LED technology.

We use the FMB Activo-Med Combi Pro Rug, a unique rug which provides sequenced Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) and Massage Therapy to the horse from poll to tail, and now also covers the shoulder and thigh areas. It can enhance the performance of sports horses and is used by many top riders.

Emily is a trainer that is committed to working on her theoretical knowledge, riding and training. I have known her now for many years and can highly recommend her work.
Dr Gerd Heuschmann
Horsemanship is not merely a matter of bodily skills, but is based on scholarship and, therefore, is a matter of the mind and intellect. Good horsemanship is based on proper character development and, therefore, is also a matter of mentality and spirit. Without the correct attitudes and insights, there cannot be the right sport.
