This past week Coach Belinda Trussell and also Assistant Trainer Lynsey Rowan had me back to work on Biasini. For the first time in almost three months I was sitting the trot and cantering. And taking instruction about half halting and giving with the contact! I did not suffer any discomfort in my injured hip which was a relief and I felt great to be back really riding!
I can tell that Biasini has been beautifully tuned up by the Belinda and Lynsey. The way he responded to my aids was marvelous. I must maintain this standard! The only thing missing is my endurance and stamina. I need more of both so I can keep it up for longer . After about 15 minutes I was getting tired and decided to stop so I would not start making mistakes.
What did we do the next day? Out to the forest trails to give both of us a change of scene. It’s easy for me but Biasini is doing a different sort of work going up and down the hills. I don’t have any video of hills but here are two short videos of the trails.
Biasini and I are so lucky to have the forest so nearby. I think it is good for both of us mentally and physically to get out on those trails.
