As one of the few Certified and Insured Instructors in the UK for the Equestrian Franklin Ball Method, Clare will also be offering mounted sessions to help riders become more aware of not only their own movement, but also the movement of your horse.
The Franklin Method uses a variety of balls and resistance bands to provide a sensory aid which are used in conjunction with Imagery to direct the riders’ attention and create a clear focus on the riders specific issue (only feeling one seat bone, tight shoulders, forward neck, unbalanced, one leg longer/looser, uneven rein contact etc).
The 45min sessions explore any issues in your posture and/or performance that you may be experiencing and because the method offers riders immediate feedback they are able to quickly see improvements in their and their horses way of going. Online Rider Specific Training Programmes will also be available to those who would like further improve any rider weakness or imbalances that they may uncover.
