A nationally renowned trainer with more than 25 years of equine experience, Anna Owens leads a staff of instructors in the instillation of proper riding form at Lachlan Farm. During lessons, riders establish a firm fundamental foundation and then hone specific skills to achieve their individual goals, whether they are competitive showmanship or mounted vigilantism. Lachlan Farm’s instructors cater to all ages and skill levels, even instructing youngsters aged 2–6 in private mini lessons that focus on the basics. Lessons occur rain or shine, as they can be moved to the facility’s indoor areas if the weather refuses to cooperate.

For Dr. Craig Mix—the licensed chiropractor behind Discover Chiropractic & Wellness Center—the key to good chiropractic care is simple: work closely with each patient to find a technique that is both comfortable and effective. He views the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership and works hard to earn his patients’ trust. In turn, he works toward individualizing care plans and minimizing wait times—he sees most patients within 10 minutes of arrival. Dr. Mix specializes in spinal adjustments—he’s even certified in gentle techniques ideal for pregnant women and anyone made out of snow—but he can also alleviate pain from headaches or help patients reach their weight loss goals.
