About us

My name is Courtney Chanin (formerly
Pearson) and I live on a ranch in Langley with my husband and our daughter, Callahan. We are the owners & operators of Special FX Equine Performance Products and Cedar Springs Ranch.

  • I have been riding since I was 2, I began jumping when I was 3, then when I was 11 my cousins introduced me to the world of rodeo and I haven’t looked back since! I’ve competed in little britches rodeo, high school rodeo and college rodeo while I received my diploma in Agricultural Management with a major in finance.

    After college I went on to get my certification in advanced equine massage therapy and vertebral realignment, since then I have expanded into different therapies to add to my arsenal with the goal of one day making our ranch a rehab centre/spa for horses. My hope is to be able to help all types of horses starting from the inside out.

    My main goal with Special FX is to bring in the best products (that ACTUALLY work) and make sure they’re readily available when you need them most I am very put off by those who sell products just for the sake of making money. They sell a product that they can market and talk you into but not that actually works for what you need it to. That’s not who I am nor who I ever will be. The products in my store I have used just about every single one on my own horses and for anything I have not, I have friends (who may fit the bill for that specific product more) try them out for me.

    When you come to me asking for help or to get more information on something I’m selling, what you will get from me is a whole hearted personal experience to which I can confidently recommend what I think will work for you and your horse. That’s not to say I couldn’t be mistaken, but at the same time you will know I’m not trying to lead you wrong, in fact for me it’s a goal to make yours and your horses lives a little bit better if I can.

    If you’ve made it this far, I thank you! To my loyal customers I am forever grateful for your support over these last couple years, to those who are still on the fence about something please don’t hesitate to ask! I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have ☺️ cheers to a wonderful 2023!
