Lens Artists Challenge #118 Biasini Speaks about Communication

Hello Dear Humans, Biasini the horse here. My human, Ma Leueen, told me that I have been asked to host the Lens-Artists’ challenge. Well, I am most honored, as I understand I am the first horse to do this. Ma Leueen told me I had to choose a word or theme for the challenge. I knew right away what word I would choose.


“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.”

Peter Drucker

I bet you know why I picked that quote for my word. We horses don’t speak. But we do communicate. We do it by observing and understanding. 

I have a story that I would like to tell you because it is all about communication between a human and a horse. The story is about my half sister . We had the same Father and different mothers. Her name is Bella Rose. She lives in Germany and her Human is a very famous rider called Isabell.  So here’s the story.

Bella and Isabell went to some really big competition in France and Bella got injured and had to go home after the first day. A lot of time went by. Bella knew she could get better and Isabell believed her. But no one else did. All the vets and all the specialists tried to put Bella together again. But Isabell never gave up on Bella.  Isabell and Bella had a special communication. They understood each other. So time goes by and there is another big competition coming up. This time it is in the USA.  Isabell knows Bella is ok to do this. Bella has let her know she is ready to compete again. Isabell  takes her to a couple of shows in Germany and tells Bella they are going to this World Championship. I have heard that some of the important Humans in Germany, who decide these things, were not happy about this idea. But Isabell said it was Bella or nothing!

They went to this World Championship and guess what? Bella was fantastic. She helped the German Team win the Gold Medal. And  Bella and Isabell won the Individual Gold Medal too.  Ma Leueen was in the media and she took photos of the competitors. Here are some of Isabell and Bella.

After they finished their first test Isabell was crying she was so happy to have Bella back competing again. Bella knew that Humans get emotional, so she was cool with it. 

Bella got a special coat to wear for the Individual Gold Medal. You can see here there are lots of German Humans waving German Flags.  If I had been there, and I could speak, I would have shouted: “That’s my half-sister!”

This story would not have had a happy ending if Isabell and Bella could not communicate. Because they could communicate, without words, they knew they could do it.

Thank you Dear Humans for having me host this special challenge and for reading my story about Bella. It shows that communication is not always about words but about what is not said. 

 What does “communication” mean to you?  I would like to know and Ma Leueen tells me you can write posts with photos about what it means to you. You have to add a link (whatever that is) to this post so that Ma Leueen and I can see your posts. Also you must use a Lens-Artists tag so other Human Bloggers can find you in the Reader. Next week Ann-Christine Human is going to host the challenge.

And the last thing before I go is to tell you about some of the responses to last weeks challenge A Photo Walk. Here are four that Ma Leueen and I really liked. I have to get Ma Leueen to do the clicking to see the blogs, as my hooves are a bit too big ,but you Humans can do it with ease so take a look at them.

    Biasini … what a lovely story (a love story). Nice to have met you and your half-sister. Fantastic to be able to visit your playground … now I have to return to my own and see what I can do about communications. When I was working I was “famous” for being a fantastic communicator .. but that is now 11 years ago.
