On Thursday Biasini was ridden by Belinda and I was there to watch .Belinda started him with several minutes of stretching trot.
Then she picked him up and did more warm up in canter
Belinda then started the work of the session. She moved Biasini forward into bigger strides and back to collected canter. Then she did some work on very collected canter with quarter turns in pirouette canter.
Belinda was very happy with Biasini. “He feels amazing,” she told me. She then told me that she has a younger horse who still leans on her hands. She said she could remember when Biasini was the same age and he used to lean a lot as well. She said that she knows now that in order to carry themselves they must have developed the strength to do that.She told me that now Biasini is feather light in her hands. Now he has the strength to be able to carry himself.
I told Belinda that I was so grateful to have her and Lynsey riding him while I was off. This means he will maintain his muscle strength.
I’d love to hear from you!
