I know that I am off with my hip fracture and that is not great but today I got to watch Lynsey Rowan ride Biasini in a lesson with my coach Belinda Trussell. That is the upside of the injury to my hip. What a treat it is to watch a talented professional ride my horse and be doing exercises that are more advanced than the work I usually do . Here is a video of their work on transitions from trot to passage and back to trot. Biasini does not do a lot of this kind of work with me so they kept it short.
Next they worked on half pass to working ( larger) pirouette and on to finish the half pass.
It is wonderful to see my horse doing so well. He really tries hard to do his best. So even though I am not able to be riding I know I am so lucky to have people like Lynsey and Belinda ride Biasini. I did give him an apple treat when he was finished his work and some cut carrots for Lynsey to give him for his stretches once his tack was off.
Toward the end of this video you can see the handles of my friend Willie Walker. I am lucky that I am able to walk with this walker and come to the barn to watch these lessons.
