Horsemanship Seminars, Clinics and Resources

Previous Horsemanship Clinics

Franklin presented his first two day clinic in Athens, Greece at the reknowned Hellenic Riding Club in December, 2008. This is the oldest, most beautiful and prestigious riding club in all Greece. It is located in the heart of Athens. The Hellenic Riding Club has a history of producing some of Greece's top riders for the Grand Prix circuit as well as Olympic hopefuls. It was truly an honor for Franklin, the first American gentle horse trainer, to have been invited to teach a seminar there. This invitation was an indication of the Hellenic Riding Club's desire to not only produce top riders, but to equally promote the mental and emotional well-being of their horses and have their riders gain more wisdom about the horse itself. For those horse enthusiasts visiting Franklin's website, who are located in Greece and Europe, Franklin strongly urges a visit or inquiry into the Hellenic Riding Club.

In October '09, Franklin led a 3-day seminar at The Ranch, in the lovely valley of Sofiko of Corinth, Greece. And most recently, he made an appearance at the Silva Project in Kanoni, Corfu.

What people are saying:

... I have ridden horses since I was 2. But now I realize that I know very few things about them. Horses are my life and I am trying to be better and better for them. Thank you for teaching us all the important things that help us to become better for our wonderful horses! I wish and hope that you come back soon to Mitilini and show us more riding techniques and better ways to communicate with horses! ...
