Horsemanship Seminars, Clinics and Resources

Horsemanship Clinics

England was one of the first overseas countries I was invited to teach at in 2002. I go there annually and sometimes several times a year. I am told I was the first person to demonstrate Equine Facilitated Learning for learning disabled children there. I present and teach a 5-day course in EFL there regularly. Additionally, I teach Beyond Natural Horsemanship seminars. Several of the locations in the UK I have taught at are Oxford, Stratford on Avon and others.

Bittles Brook Farm, and The New Horse facility is now Franklin's home base when travelling to the UK. You can read my comments about it in my essay entitled "Happiness Is...".

I strongly endorseThe New Horse as a progressive, evolved and truly exceptional place to learn about horses, how to compassionately and effectively train them, experience and learn Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) programs of many modalities and applications, as well as a wonderful place to enjoy nature, camaraderie and gain life enriching inspiration. I hope you will join me there on my next visit, or visit stop by The New Horse the next time you find yourself near Dorset.”

What people are saying:

...I have never been to a demo where the trainer gives as much of themselves as you do and with such amazing results. You open people's hearts and they willingly give more of themselves when you are around and that is no easy task, especially in England. Your expertise with horses speaks for itself and next time I would like my horse to meet you too.
