Totally unique to Ride From Within and developed by James Shaw, drawn from ancient healing arts, “The 10 Gates” found in the horse and rider, are areas of the body that regulate the movement of force. Knowledge of these areas and the ability to open and close them regulate the forces of gravity and of the horse that normally get “stuck” in the body creating blocks to the natural flow of force. They are the unknown secrets that allow an unseen connection that has a profound and magical effect on you and your horse’s connection making riding effortless.
Riding an accurate and perfect circle, turning a corner or achieving “bend” in your horse can be a hit or miss affair and in the modern mainstream riding world is always taught using the external aids of inside rein and outside leg, with “looking where you are going” to generally address the quality and shape of your turn or circle. In this 6-week course we take all the mystery out of riding a circle and you will learn to execute them perfectly and accurately, every time, with powerful internal aids that make it so effortless you will think you are using magic.
