    Biasini Speaks: I have Arrived!

    Well Dear Humans I am in sunny, warm Florida. It was a long trip of course to get here. We left early and I knew exactly where we were going as I had heard the Humans talking about it. So once I heard the rumble of the big engine of the transport I knew we […]

    Biasini Speaks: Look at my trot!

    Hello again Dear Humans . Trainer Lynsey has been riding me this week and she had me do some Peeaff. Ah….Ma Leueen says it is spelled piaffe and it is not a word that I am allowed to use my own spelling. Lynsey didn’t have me do this piaffe thing because I am going to […]

  • How to ride the Inter 1 Zig Zag

    How to ride the Inter 1 Zig Zag

    This week I asked Lynsey Rowan to show me the Intermediare 1 Zig Zag. This movement was always one that I struggled with when I was competing in the Inter 1 in 2019. I used to dread it when I knew it was coming up in the test. This is a tricky movement. Starting with […]

  • How important are rewards?

    How important are rewards?

    Watching Lysney Rowan ride Biasini something struck me. She always lets Biasini know when he is doing something good. She will give him a pat or a rub on the withers or a word of encouragement a “good boy”. Here is a video that shows her asking for a collected canter. Biasini responds well and […]

    Biasini Speaks: I’ve had a good week!

    I have had a good week this past week. I have been ridden twice by Coach Belinda and, as you know, I work hard for her. Then one day Ma Leueen took me for a walk in the forest. That is something I always enjoy. Assistant Trainer Lynsey also took me to the forest on […]

    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 […]

  • Back to Work!

    Back to Work!

    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 […]

  • Consistency!

    Consistency!

    “Trust is built with consistency.” Lincoln Chafee When I watch Belinda Trussell or her assistant trainer Lynsey Rowan ride my horse Biasini, I am always admiring how great Biasini looks and how they are able to do exercises, that I find so difficult, with apparent ease. I know they are professional riders who ride several […]

  • The corner is your friend.

    The corner is your friend.

    What does it mean ‘ the corner is your friend’? When I was a teenager and riding in the jumpers my coach always said: “The corner is your friend” He meant that it was my chance to look ahead and get my horse prepared for whatever was coming next. Today I watched Lynsey Rowan have […]
