Do any older adult reriders do clinics?
Sounds like a dumb question, but I'm considering signing up for a Melanie Smith Taylor clinic and everything I see on YouTube shows younger riders in her clinics. I don't just mean the EAP ones. So it got me thinking, and I'd like to know, how many of you older riders do clinics? Is it worthwhile? Do you get the same level of attention as the younger riders do? Or will I get the polite nod from the clinician and otherwise not much?
I've competed only one season now at 2'6-2'9 level, although we have schooled 3'0 at home. I am very self conscious and have arthritis in my back, plus bad knees, so I'm stiff when I ride. Will that be a real problem?
