Podcast Episode 84 Franklin Levinson A Course in Horse
In this episode I spoke with Franklin Levinson. It’s a real privilege to speak with someone who has given so much to the gentle training of horses for so many years.
Franklin as a boy found himself always seeking peace due to loudness in his life. This is how he came to connect with horses so well. He saw in them what he was looking for himself. He does not believe in bad horses, he also believes horses are always right. Franklin says horses when they react to something are in a state of fear, not disrespect, and you can be a great horseperson when you are able to realise that the horse is simply a peace seeker. So instead of punishing a horse or correcting a horse what you can do is lead the horse to a place within themselves of safety and peace.This is a beautiful conversation with a beautiful man and I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
