How old were you?

Edited to add - must be in a show!

I hope you aren't going to draw ANY conclusions from this poll. I'd hate people to every think that there was anytime in dressage that "if you haven't done it by now you never will". There is always time.

And for the sake, why don't you add 'successfully'?

I never (But I wish and will)! and I doubt there will be much. How 'bout you?

Early forties and got my gold medal the first
two times in the ring.
I was more afraid of Fabian getting broken and
not making than me.
Another poll - what age was the horse?
(He was 14)

I was looking for the "There's still time!" option to select. Oh well…

If I could have more than 4 options, I definitely would have added the "not yet, but working on it" option! I don't think it's ever too late, just would like to know when the average UL rider broke that barrier. Inquiring minds want to know! :)

Not yet, but I'm planning on doing it by my 225th birthday.

A score above 60 by 40 would be great.

Actually, even just schooling the movements by then would be great.

I have a ways to go. :)

The Japanese rider, Hiroshi Hoketsu, did the Olympics at 68. At 70, he's in 11th place so far in GP.
