ranklin Method® has helped equestrians take their riding to the next level by unlocking old patterns in the body and tapping into new skills for improving your movement and your relationship with your horse, so your riding feels strong, seamless, and intuitive.

During this 2-part training you’ll learn Franklin Method® imagery and embodiments of the pelvis as they apply to riding.

“What I love when delivering a session is how clients get instant feedback on how to notice a change in their body which also affects their horse….that is truly lovely to see!”
– Carol Green, Franklin Method® Equestrian Pelvis Trainer

Over 10 days you’ll experience our unique core principles, including anatomical education, embodied function, and Dynamic-Neurocognitive Imagery® (DNI), as they directly apply to equestrians.

Although you’ll learn a lot of theory, this is not simply a lecture series or “movement training.” You’ll be experiencing Franklin Method® for riding in an interactive format, using a Joker horse Simulator and truly integrating solutions for your unique challenges.

Students will graduate from the training with an entirely new perspective on the riders’ body and movement. Not to mention, you’ll have learned and embodied practical tools you’ll immediately be able to take out into the arena.

You’ll learn how to utilize Franklin Method® mind-body exercises and imagery both in and out of the saddle. From your warm-up to your riding lessons, having Franklin Method® tools in your toolbox will revolutionize your coaching and you’ll quickly see the tangible results in your riders that you’ve been looking for.

You’ll discover exactly how to use Franklin Balls and Franklin Bands along with the scientifically proven Franklin Method® principles to multiply their benefits.

“This course will fundamentally change the way you ride and the way you coach others. The knowledge and the experience of feeling the change in your own body as you apply what you have learned by either working with the simulator yourself of coaching others through the process will set you apart from other trainers in the market. It is worth the investment in both time and money.”

How will Franklin Method® impact my teaching skills?

Learning the Franklin Method® will help you understand your anatomical function on a scientific yet intuitive level. You’ll learn how certain cues and movements could actually be going against the function of your body, and the function of your horse. These improper cues, while well-meaning, can contribute to harmful movement patterns for both you and your horse. Learning the Franklin Method® will give you a strong foundation based on long-standing and new cutting-edge science. It will improve your cues and give you more confidence, because you’ll know your instructions are congruent with correct anatomical function.

This is a 10-day, 2-module training held over 2 separate 5 day modules. We’ll start each day with a Franklin Method® mind-body warm up where you’ll learn and practice the core principles that make up the Franklin Method®.

Over our 10 days together we’ll cover Franklin Method® theory and anatomical education, as well as embodiment and imagery for the lower leg and surrounding muscles/fascia.

Then, we’ll be applying the embodiments, imagery we just learned directly to riding with the use of a JOKER horse simulator (mechanical horse).

Each day will finish with dismounted training exercises using Franklin Balls and Franklin Bands.

There will be practice teaching assignments and a case study report in between the modules. At the end of the certification training you’ll be asked to give 10-minute presentation on one of the topics you learned in the first module. You’ll also be asked to teach a 10 minute mounted Franklin Method Equestrian session with imagery based on your presentation topic.
