I was discharged from the hospital yesterday and sleeping in my own bed last night. The surgeon was very happy with how the surgery had gone. All my vitals were normal and so I was released! YAY! I now have a two wheeled walker which is not my favorite!! I cannot carry anything while using…
Walking, for six weeks,on firm footing.
I am currently reading “Riding Through My Life.” This is the autobiorgaphy of Princess Anne. She speaks of an essential part of the exercise that must be done to get a horse fit for a big three day event like Badminton. “Starting work meant six weeks of walking the roads—very boring but considered essential after…
I knew it could happen but…
” If this was a 5 year old horse I could say he absolutely will come back. But this horse at 18? He may not come back.” This is what the vet said after looking at the ultrasound images of Biasini’s injured leg. I knew that as a ‘senior’ horse he might not heal up…

Biasini has done his work for the day. Lynsey will take him for a walk to relax and then he gets his bath, some hand grazing with his ice boots on and then….dinner!
I can honestly tell you that last weekend while getting Biasini to the show and watching Lynsey ride him through two tests, I did not think”Gosh I wish I was showing”.Not once. It never even crossed my mind. I should be clear that I have done lots of showing in dressage for over 20 years.…

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
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?
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…
It is what it is!
No riding for six months. But there is a positive side as well.
