Biasini Speaks: Western Trail Horse? No Problem!

Hello again Dear Humans!  I think if you have been reading Ma Leueen’s blob posts you will know she has been away. She went off to some huge big horse show. Coach Belinda’s horse, Tattoo, went as well and  Coach Belinda rode him in the show. When he got home he told me he had done really well but the weather had been really hot and sticky. He didn’t like that too much. And the other thing he complained about was that there was no grass anywhere to eat when Assistant Lynsey would take him for walks.. He said that was a big disappointment. I agreed with him ’cause when we horses are away at shows it is nice to get out for a bit of a walk and relax and have a munch on some grass.

Ma Leueen was not riding in this big show. She was doing the media thing and taking pictures and talking on her blob about it all.   To be honest I wasn’t all that interested as, other than Tattoo, I didn’t  know any of the horses.

I had a nice holiday while she  was gone and Barn Manager Carl took me on some trail rides in the forest. And….you know what he said after our first ride? He gave me a pat and said I walked like a Western Trail Horse. Yup! That’s what he said. That is a huge compliment of course! Why? Because when you go out on a trail you want a nice relaxed horse walking steadily along, covering ground and just  getting on with  it. You don’t want some flibbity gibbity horse spooking and prancing. Nope! You want a Western Trail Horse.

Here is a photo taken on the day when Barn Manager Carl took me out with two other horses. Well look at how they have their heads…..all up in the air like dressage horses. But not me! That’s me there on the right. Look at my head ….nice and  low and  relaxed. That’s how Western Trail horses go.Resized_20180913_134628

And look at all the boots and wraps on those horses legs. I only have small boots on my front feet. That’s because I know where my legs and feet are no matter how rough the ground is. I can step over tangles of roots on the ground, no problem. I can do it without  banging my legs. All Western Trail horses know that stuff.

When Ma Leueen came back I had to go into the arena and be a dressage horse again and to be honest I wasn’t all that keen to do that.  I had enjoyed my holiday. But Ma Leueen told me that when we are retired we can go on trail rides all the time but now we have to train and work and I must be a dressage horse.

She’s right. I am a dressage horse after all and I’m pretty good at it. And besides, Ma Leueen takes me on trail rides sometimes too. So……life is good.

Till next time Dear Readers….Happy Trails to you.

    This made me laugh, reminding me of the time one of my fellow quadrille riders saw a horse coming up the road in front of the barn, in western tack, with one of our trainers riding her. She asked “Who is that horse? She’s so pretty!” It was Charm, who looks and moves a whole lot like a little quarter horse when she’s dressed up western!

      Ah! Well Alli Human thank you for telling me that. There are no Western saddles at our barn but maybe when Ma Leueen and I are retired I could have one!

      Thank you so much. Ma Leueen has showed me the new logo with Dizzy. I like it. I told Ma Leueen she should get a new logo done with me on it. Say hello to Dizzy for me!

      1. She should get a logo with you on it!! It would look wonderful. You would have to decide if you wanted your more relaxed or hard working look for it though. 🙂 And Dizzy said hello back! 🙂 xxx

      Thank you Diana Human for the compliments. People do say I am a beautiful or handsome horse. I don’t let this go to my head of course as Ma Leueen is always reminding me that handsome is as handsome does!
