About this product

Product Information

Few forms of exercise are better suited for equestrians than Tai Chi. The ancient Chinese art unifies the body, mind, and spirit in a series of flowing movements that align the posture, breath, and inner- and outermost being. Combining this art with horsemanship offers the rider the opportunity to become “one” with her horses, to better her skills by centering her body, gaining control of her breathing, and calming her mind. From the Yin and Yang perspective and “opening” the Eight Gates, to enhancing movement and power on the ground and refining skills in the saddle, Shaw teaches the techniques necessary to achieve a true connection with the horse. With step-by-step color photos to guide readers through introductory exercises, and with a basic discussion of Eastern philosophy, this book provides a great foundation for a new way of riding. James Shaw has studied and trained in the martial arts for over 20 years. He currently lives in Arizona and travels extensively, teaching his techniques at clinics and expositions.
