"Can't say enough about the Franklin Method Equestrian training philosophy!"

Alysen Starko-Bowes is a phenomenal educator and instructor who founded the Franklin Method Equestrian training program.

The Franklin Method helps us understand the internal workings of our bodies and how this impacts our riding. The Franklin Method brings riders to a whole new level of biomechanics!

"It's made massive improvements for me and my horse's way of going!!"

I wish more people could feel the difference in their riding position as I have since using the Franklin Method. It has changed the way I think, feel and experience movement when I ride. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try!







👩‍🏫 Led by Franklin Method Equestrian and Train Your Seat founder Alysen Starko-Bowes

Breathing well is an important skill to master which will have a massive impact on your movement, posture and performance. Breathing is also closely tied in to our mental and emotional state of being. When you breathe fully, you communicate a calm and relaxed state to your horse. When your breathing is restricted, you communicate the opposite which can lead to tension and unnecessary stress for your horse. Learning how to breathe better and control your breathing is the quickest and easiest way to positively influence your horse's way of going.

During this 2 hour workshop you’ll learn…

  • Why changes to your breathing will improve your posture in the saddle.
  • How to resolve misalignment in the ribcage including twisting and collapsing to one side.
  • 5 powerful breathing techniques to help you stay calm and focused especially during a show or competition.
  • Simple exercises you can do anywhere to train your breathing for efficiency and more breath capacity.
  • Why training your breathing mechanism properly is the KEY to a supportive 'core'.

This workshop will also have a live Q&A portion which is an excellent opportunity for you to engage directly with Alysen and get personalized guidance and support. During the Q&A, you'll have the chance to ask questions and receive tailored advice based on your unique needs and goals. You'll also have the opportunity to learn from other equestrians taking the course, as they share their experiences and insights! Our live Q&A is designed to provide you with the most comprehensive and effective learning experience possible, ensuring that you get the most out of your time with us.

Yes, I'm ready to transform my breathing!
