OUR PHILOSOPHY - THE FIVE ASSUMPTIONS:
1. Horses are Amazing Beings Whose Viewpoints Hold Equal Merit to Our Own.
2. We Can Achieve Our Goals Through Mutual Honoring
3. Our Goals Will Always Be Less Important Than Our Bond (Our "WE")
4. It May Be Uncomfortable as We Re-evaluate Our Approach to Pretty Much Everything.
5. It will be worth the Journey
Yes! You can do Tai Chi on horseback! (it is also super fun practicing next to an unrideable horse)
My students are often delighted when they feel the energy with their horse for the first time. Equestrian Tai Chi is a simple practice that opens up new ways to communicate with your equine friend. The moves are accessible to all and my students find them calming and centering.
Each Tai Chi movement has its own purpose and energetic pattern. Performing these moves with your horse can hep to smooth both of your energy fields. Plus, its fun!
I have been a student of the horse for over 25 years. Throughout this time, I have been repelled by the structure of dominance and hierarchy embedded in various "training" methods. I knew in my bones that there had to be a path with horses (and with life) that was founded in communication and cooperation. I also delight in the wisdom that horses are willing to offer to us; and I teach both of the subjects in my one-on-one lessons and
home study courses.
