T'ai Chi and a dressage quadrille. Master Kai Kusinow of Mongolian descent demonstrates movements of T'ai Chi that could be used by a foot soldier in combat as a quadrille of 2 Arabian geldings and 2 Swedish Warmblood mares move in clock work like precision around him. The 2 riders in the photo are Patty Crawford of NJ on Pri Serr Sahir in the front, and Veronica Deambrogio of Argentina on Pri Manabi Halim in the rear.
