    After perusing this board for awhile, it seems to me that there has to be other "mature" members like myself.
    No offense, but I'm not referring to the "Eeeek, I'm 30" crowd or "Oh,Lord, it's over, I've turned forty" gang.
    The ones I want to hear from are the fifties and up....the higher the better. I think we have some interesting insights about horses and riding that would be fun to share. (For instance, why can't someone put huge numbers on every jump. If can't remember my husband's name sometimes, how can I remember what's after the oxer.
    So if you recall Spin and Marty and the name of
    Tonto's horse, stand up and shout it out.
    Me first. 57 and still improving.

    Yep, there are a few of us folks "of a certain age" here. In fact, I remember seeing a signature that mentioned the "fossils over fences" clique.

    I remember Rodney Jenkins as a young man, I saw Frank Chapot jump San Lucas in the Puissance at Washington, and I knew and rode with both Gabor Francia-Kiss and Hubert Rohrer when they first arrived in this country.

    Sigh. I'm old.

    Well, let's put it this way- as a Western riding kid, I got to meet Casey Tibbs (World CH. rodeo rider) AND I just glitched his name for 30 seconds! (Hint- Elvis Presley was playing...)

    I,too, remember Spin and Marty and Frances, the talking mule. I'm a 1945 model but I started with the horses late when I lived in England during my late twenties.

    That's me. Over the hill and glad of it.

    What's really sad is I recognize other names on this thread... waaahaaahaaa.

    Hi Monstrpony. You too Silly Horse.

    Julie, ... hi! You and I were born in the same year... isn't it great? We never have a hard time remembering our birthdates. Teehee.

    Welcome to the loonybin Epoch.

    Just a thought...

    P.S. Only 106 days till I pick up my youngster. Yahoo.

    P.P.S. Actually the really nice thing about being older is we've all learned how to spell!!!

    Me ? ....A definite old bag (hence, the moniker), but still riding Jumpers. I think I am a slow learner! Nearly everyone else has learned that it is wiser to get off, but not me! I still love to ride...and train...and teach...and show. My mother had hoped that I would grow up and act like a lady one day, but, alas, that never happened.

    Oh...and I am the oldest of you all!

    Born in 1948 - parents always thought I would outgrow the horses but never have. Now have a 20 yr old retired jumper and a 5 year old hunter. Have 4 sisters - 3 with horses so parents really never had a chance.

    Some things you never outgrow!

    1956 Model here but very used and feeling older.
    I remember Spin and Marty and still own my mouse ears. Is that close enough? Been riding since I was 7 - an old Long Island girl at that!
    Vermont - where winter riders are real riders.
