About Franklin Method Equestrian®

Founded by Eric Franklin in 1994 and originally for dancers, The Franklin Method® uses Dynamic Neuro-cognitive Imagery™, anatomical embodiment and educational skills, along with a range of simple tools, to create lasting positive change in your body and mind.

One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; that the lives we live shape the brain we develop, and the Franklin Method is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity, showing you how to use your brain to improve your body’s function.

 

As riders we need our body to be in a beautiful symphony of coordinated movement with that of our horse.  That means adapting constantly to his movement, whilst staying coordinated and in balance in our own body, and mentally focused so we can connect and communicate with him.

With practice of the Franklin Method riders become more aware of their position and movement, and better able to apply their aids efficiently and effectively, resulting in clearer and more precise communication and deeper connection between horse and rider.

 

Taught all over the world, this method shows you how to harness the transforming power of the mind, something that can be applied to improve all of your abilities. 

 

It starts with the knowledge that we have the power to change.
