    Part 2. Lynsey and Biasini Lesson

    After doing some work in the covered arena Lynsey suggested they go to the outdoor arena. For a show the warm up is in one ring and the tests are ridden in another. So it is a good idea to practice changing arenas. They decided Lynsey would ride the trot tour of the Prix St.George […]

    Lynsey and Biasini: a lesson with Belinda.

    Today I watched Lysney ride in a lesson with Belinda Trussell. They did a warm up in the covered arena and I took some video with my phone. Belinda was teaching using her Cee coach mic system. My phone was not able to pick up her vocals well enough as she is not amplified as […]

    My requests for Belinda Trussell

    Last week Belinda Trussell rode Biasini. She mounted up and asked me if I had any requests! What would I like to see her do with Biasini. I asked for some canter half pass and then perhaps some work on pirouettes. Belinda agreed and then she warmed up Biasini. Once he was warmed up she […]

    Back to Lessons!

    My lessons are only 25 minutes at the moment and Belinda or Lynsey will warm him up for me and get him “switched on”! But I am working on getting my stamina back so I can get back to the full 45 minutes . But there is some real value to these short lessons. I […]

    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 […]
