Hofmag Partner Brand Guidelines & T&Cs

We are delighted to provide guidance to our community of Hofmag practitioners on how to use the new Hofmag brand.
Our goal at Hofmag is to champion equine health and wellbeing, and to be the partner of choice for pulsed magnetic therapy. Just like our equine friends, a brand needs love, care and attention to ensure that it consistently performs to the best of its ability.
These guidelines have been developed to make sure you get the most out of your Hofmag accreditation, and are able to utilise our brand to maximise the potential of your business and the treatments you offer.
We recommend you read the guidelines before making any changes to how you use the Hofmag brand.
