As a student/teacher of A Course In Miracles for the past 40 years, David’s experience is that we are given all we need, when we need it. His counseling practice focuses on taking a look at what's real, and what we imagine and believe to be true, with the goal of restoring peace of mind.

Showing humans how to have the best relationship possible with their horses and how to keep it has always been one of Franklin's main goals. To be good with horses at a high level requires us humans to come forward with our best qualities and attributes.
Similar to a 'great parent', successful relationships with horses require compassion, kindness, precision, patience, clarity, real knowledge (not just opinions and projections), great leadership, acquired skills and more. Practicing appropriate interaction with horses helps humans to become more highly functional in all their relationships. Thus, in all his programs, Franklin teaches success with horses as life enrichment for the human as well as the horse.
