WHY FM FOR EQUESTRIANS?
Equestrians need to be coordinated and balanced in their own bodies to be able to adequately adapt to the constant movement beneath them while riding. They also need to be mentally focused in order to connect and communicate with their horse.
The Franklin Method combines anatomical embodiment and imagery to improve awareness, train the mind-body connection, and produce efficient movement.
With practice of the Franklin Method, equestrians become more aware of not only their own movement, but also the movement of their horse. Consequently, the connection between horse and rider becomes more clear and precise.
The key to the Franklin Method is the use of imagery.
But why train with imagery?
The greatest tool that we have to use is the power of our mind. The Franklin Method systematically teaches you how to gain control your thinking.
Your mind is always available for you to use in any moment. It is the quickest and easiest way to affect your body and movement.
Using imagery directs your attention and creates a clear focus.
In the Franklin Method, you are also effectively embodying the functional relationship between bones, joints, muscles, fascia and organs.
When you embody something it means that you have a physical experience or insight around it.
As you create more anatomically correct embodiment, your movement quality will improve.
With more coordinated movement you’ll experience improved strength, flexibility and posture naturally in your riding.
If you are able to produce more efficient and coordinated movement, your horse will be able to do the same. The result of this is a rider and horse that look balanced easeful in their movement.
