Belinda Trussell shows me how it’s done.

If you follow this blog you will know that due to my hip issues I am back to watching Belinda and Lynsey ride Biasini. This may be disappointing but also it is a great chance to see dressage executed as it should be. Here is a video that will show you what I mean. Belinda rides Biasini across the diagonal and then down the long side in shoulder in. This is how the shoulder in should look. Textbook!

Belinda told me later she felt Biasini was feeling very good and supple. In the half pass she thought he could have been a bit more supple but she could have achieved that with more work in travers to warm him up more.

Something else I noticed was Biasini’s tail. It was swinging easily from side to side.There was no wringing or swishing of the tail in circles. He was relaxed and happy with what Belinda was asking him to do.

It was a beautiful autumn day and the colors of the trees have been spectacular this year. From where I was sitting to watch Belinda ride Biasini I had a view of the trees through the huge window at the end of the arena.This, and watching my horse go so well, raises my spirits!

      It is isn’t it! Horses tell us lots of things without speaking.
