Gorgeous and Accomplished!

You know you are off to a good start in a clinic when the clinician, who happens to be a 4* judge,watches your warm up your horse and says.: “What a gorgeous horse!” However that does NOT mean she will not have lots of corrections and useful critiques to give me on how I can…

Time to Dance!

This weekend Biasini and I will be “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and doing our Freestyle at the White Fences show. It is always the moment of truth entering the ring at A and going down the centerline to salute the judge. Things that were brilliant in the home arena may not be quite the same…

Do It Anyways!

This week my coach Belinda Trussell has been getting me to make up my own mind about what needs to be done every moment of my riding. Does Biasini need a half halt? A correction? Belinda is resisting telling me what to do and watching to see what my decisions are. So I have to…

Gratitude!

I have a debt of gratitude to pay for all the help I received at the show last weekend. So let me start… BIASINI I thank my horse for working so hard and listening so well. He has been working with me for several months to get ready for this show and our freestyle. In…

And finally the time arrived to actually go…

Biasini Speaks: Shhh…I’m Listening!

Well Dear Humans I have been working hard lately. Coach Belinda has been very rigorous in the amount of work she has been asking Ma Leueen to ask me to do. This week Coach Belinda is away and I thought I might get a break but no…. Ma Leueen arranged for Assistant Lynsey to give…

The Back to Basics Spiral.

Round. Like a circle in a spiral. Like a wheel within a wheel. Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel. Lyrics from Windmills of your mind. Going back to the basics. How often do we hear this as riders? We are always going ‘back to the basics’. But it does not mean we…
