    What a nice write up! There was an article in this months Modern Arabian Horse of someone else who earned their Century Ride on another "elderly" arabian mare. Let's hear it for our old friends.

    (And of course, I am the proud owner of a 28 year old. Any 72 year olds out there need a ride?)

    Mike:

    Thank you, thank you for posting this as this statement is VERY encouraging to me:

    "In April Marion took a 3 week trip to see family in Europe. A few days after her return she suffered a heart attack and underwent quadruple bypass surgery for 8 major coronary blockages, 3 at 99%. All went well and Marion was back in the saddle in 6 weeks and she just continues to do better."

    I just got out of the hospital last night after having a heart attack and so glad to see this encouraging article concening her quad bypass and she's back in the saddle 6 weeks later.

    Thank you Thank you.
