Ben Franklin

British Dressage rider and trainer


About Ben

Ben Franklin is a competitive British Dressage rider and trainer, who specialises in the production of young horses. Trained regularly by Carl Hester, he has enjoyed success both regionally and nationally. He works with young horses all the way through to Grand Prix, as well as horses in other disciplines. He is available to teach throughout the UK and abroad.


“Ben Franklin taught my group of young riders this winter in Wellington — a variety of levels and talent of horses and riders. It was inspiring to see the improvement in every single rider from their quiet, methodical work. The lessons were such that the riders were able to take what they learned and continue with it on their own.”


“The difference Ben has made to my riding and how my horse goes in two lessons is incredible. I literally can’t wait for my next one. Be prepared to sweat, but the smile that you have at the end of the lesson makes the hard work well worth it”


“I have thoroughly enjoyed the lessons I have been fortunate to have with Ben and have made huge improvements within a short time. The way Ben explains things makes so much sense and very effective. Thankyou so much”


“Ben is a lovely gentleman I met at the Oldenburg Verband summer meeting. As a dressage trainer/breeder he added so much to our group discussions. See his post about the meeting on Eurodressage. I can only imagine what fantastic clinics and lessons he must offer his clients!”


“I recently rode on my young horse with Ben and focused on qualifying for the Young Horse Championships at Lamplight for 4 year olds. I feel very confident and prepared for our upcoming competition! I highly recommend him! He has a great eye, is kind and fair to both horse and rider, yet knows when to push. His understanding of the young horse and building an elite athlete are right on target!”
