Hi, I’m Jenny Pim!I’m the Founder and Creator of Equestrian Tai Chi. I’m a Certified Tai Chi Instructor Registered with the Tai Chi Union For Great Britain and a Certified Riding Coach With Horse Sport Ireland.I believe Horses are more sensitive to Chi/energy than we are and if we learn to develop our energy, we’ll be able to connect more deeply with them!At the moment many of us do not have:-
A way of relaxing ourselves and our horse together and spending time together in energetic harmony.
Or a way of managing our energy and emotions riding, so both us have less anxiety riding.
Or a way of deepening our partnership with our horse, so he’ll look to us as a source of safety and connection.
Or a way of making our body an easy body for energy to flow through.
Or a way of communicating with our horse through our energy riding, so we don’t just have to rely on physical aids.
Or a way of managing the energy in our body and mind that could be affecting us and our horse negatively.
Or a way of connecting with our horse at higher finer energetic levels riding, levels that our horse has the ability to connect on.We may have tried learning about energy, or managing anxiety riding, or connecting with our horse through different modalities, but these haven't given us what we were hoping for.
The reason they don't help is, they don't have the depth and scope in them to address all these different issues which relate to body, energy, mind and spirit, in a connected coherent way.
When we begin to develop ourselves together with our horse:-
Our practice and partnership becomes a source of safety and sanctuary for us both.
We both become more relaxed and connected together riding.
We become able to communicate at a deeper, more refined energetic level riding.
Our body will be less stressed, it will open up and allow energy to move through it freely.
We can begin to let go of the energy that is affecting both us and our horse negatively.
We become able to connect with our horse at a higher level riding, where together we’ll feel more internally free and connected.
Since 2012 I've been teaching riders to enhance their communication and partnership with their horse through the energy practices I've developed for riders and horses based on Taoist Methods. I’ve also developed Certification Programs for Instructors.
It’s my passion to help illuminate horses through these practices, so people can come to perceive them as the wonderful energetic beings they truly are, and that really we're only connecting with them in a fraction of the way we could be.
They are so much more energetically aware than us and it’s really us that needs to up-level if we want to redress this imbalance!
As well as Equestrian Tai Chi, I’ve developed other systems from Taoist Methods for horses and riding, including;- Chi Connected Riding, Riding Release Therapy, Taoist Meditation for Equestrians, Taoist Breathing for Riding. I offer certification programs; Equestrian Tai Chi for Riding Instructors, Equestrian Tai Chi for Therapeutic Riding Instructors (mounted), Interactive Equine Tai Chi for People who would like to practice with people/children with learning needs (unmounted) and Equine Etheric Field Therapy. The Programs I offer for riders (who aren’t instructors) are Equestrian Tai Chi Connect and How to Manage Your Mindset and Emotions Riding.
My hope is that these Programs will help people and horses together, to help each other.

An Introduction to Equestrian Tai Chi! - 21 min. 48 sec. Day 1 Ourselves; Mindset, Riding, Health
When we practice The Equestrian Tai Chi, the movements balance our energy through its different layers bringing them together in harmony so we feel more coherent inside. When our energy is like this, it’s calming and relaxing and supportive for the horse. It makes us a very easy rider for our horse to be with, because horses are affected by how we are inside.
Our Equestrian Tai Chi practice directly affects our horse and helps our horse to be more relaxed and less reactive. We can both draw on the companionship of being connected in harmony together.
In Equestrian Tai Chi training, as well as and along with Equestrian Tai Chi, riders learn and practice other specialized 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!
In this video we’ll learn; some exercises from Equestrian Tai Chi, a little about Taoist Cosmology and a specialized energy exercise for riding!
