Chi Connected Riding is the name I call a way of riding where you feel totally in sync with your horse through your energy riding.
In Equestrian Tai Chi Training, as well as and along with Equestrian Tai Chi, riders learn and practice other specialised energy exercises to help awaken and develop their internal energy.
Riders also learn to connect and communicate with their horse through their energy as they’re riding in a way that the horse can follow and understand.
Riding like this, giving energetic aids to the horse, makes our partnership more connected, as we’re communicating with our horse in a way that is natural for him, through energy.
Chi Connected Riding is where we learn to open and develop our internal energy and develop a Chi Connection with our horse riding, and to communicate and connect with our horse through specialised energy exercises for riding.
We use our shared experience of our awakened internal energy/Chi to communicate with our horse.
Horses respond positively to this way of riding, they go in a good rhythm, they become more relaxed, they’re more accepting of connect and are more focused on the rider.
When you ride like this, as the Chi flows through your physical body, it also flows through the layers of your energy, your vitality, your emotions, your mind and your spirit – these extend from inside your body out into your energy field.
Our riding becomes a shared experience on many levels making it more satisfying for the horse as well as the rider as they are connecting at a deeper more subtle level, in a way that is natural for the horse.
This training is part of Equestrian Tai Chi Connect ~ The Interactive Online Training for Riders that will be opening later this year.
