Discover a NEW PARADIGM in Riding


True Harmony between Horse and Rider

Based on ancient, almost forgotten principles that govern movement, Ride from Within brings forth a new paradigm in riding. Your horse lives by these principles, horses own balanced and powerful movement. They do not need us to teach them how to move. It is us that need to learn how to move like them.


New Paradigm

New findings that completely change the way
people think about or interact with something


Ride from Within is the ONLY riding method that has discovered and identified the 3rd-dimensional movement in the horses’ pelvis. It is the only movement the horse cannot put into the rider’s seat when we ride.

In order to have an effective and influential seat that can match and lead the power of the horse, we need to learn to move like them to connect with them, otherwise, we take our limited 2-dimensional and unbalanced movement to the saddle which directly restricts and impedes their natural state of balance, power and therefore fluid effortless movement.

When we learn to move 3 dimensionally in our pelvis the horse is free to move as he was designed to and horse and rider become One, riding from the inside out.


Meet James Shaw

James Shaw is a new kind of riding teacher dedicated to helping people transform themselves and their riding by bringing forth a new paradigm in our physical connection to the horse which is a doorway into complete connection, mind, body, and spirit. This is a path to Mastery, the elusive harmonious, fluid connection we all dream of but for centuries has remained in the hands of a select few.


“I am not an “airy-fairy” person. I am very pragmatic. There was nothing magical in what James did,
except for the results. At 52, I am riding better, longer and more difficult horses than I have ridden
since my 20s….. If one approaches the work with an open mind, there is no limit to how much James can help any level of rider. Your horses will thank you!

Kathy King Johnson, M.Ed.

“We are at the forefront of a new paradigm in ethical riding and training and for the sake of your
horse I challenge you, whether novice or advanced, to find the real truth in your seat like I did and Ride From Within.

“The information that I have gained from participating in the James Shaw clinic is invaluable,
I am a better instructor because of his generous nature and clarity of explanation. The tai chi
principals combined with James’ comprehensive teaching style has proven to be the most valuable instruction that I’ve ever experienced.”
