My Friend Biasini

You and your horse. His strength and beauty. Your knowledge and patience and determination and understanding and love. That’s what fuses the two of you onto this marvelous partnership that makes you wonder, “What can heaven offer any better then what I have here on earth?”.         Monica Dickens

I am sure it will not surprise anyone  who knows me that my horse, Biasini, is the “friend” I have chosen for this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge: Friend.

Any rider can tell you that some horses , when frightened, will see it as imperative to dump the rider. The rider is perceived as an impediment to their survival and so they must be jettisoned.  But other horses, when spooking to flee a perceived danger, will take the rider with them. It is as if they say:” Hang on, we’ve  got to get our of here.”

Biasini is one of the latter. He may spook but he always takes me along with him. In the three years I have had him he  has spooked less and less. Now he trusts that I will not put him in any danger. And I trust that he will not put me in any danger.

He is my  companion, athletic partner, therapist and friend.

    Biasini is gorgeous! His expression reminds me of my chestnut Quarter Horse (which I swear my family purchased because we had the same color “hair”!) Chestnut’s have such personalities and it looks like your relationship with him is similar to ours! I look forward to more posts from you!

    Reblogged this on and commented:
    Anyone that knows me knows that my lovely mutt Violet is my friend and support. I have referred to her as my unofficial support dog because even though she suffers from pain and arthritis, she is always there to comfort me no matter what. This story of the bond between Anne and her horse Biasini reminds me of Violet.

        I was moved by all your stories about Biasini. Animals, no matter what type are so intuitive.
