24 Posture Taijiquan (24 Form Tai Chi)
Lesson 15 – High Pat on Horse
“High Pat on Horse” or “High Mounted Scout” suggests the image of a person sitting high in the saddle, holding reigns in the left hand and patting the horse’s neck with the right hand.
The challenge of this movement is to maintain a good empty stance with the hips turned to the right leg while the upper body twists to the left. The twisting of the waist may feel a bit like wringing a towel.
