Same here. I refuse to keep track of my actual age, 'cause of all the people who'd keep saying "slow down, act your age, take it easy" and similar cr*p. And I see my contemporaries spending their time in front of the TV, barely able to walk to the car to drive to WalMart, where they'll use the electric carts to ride around the store - while I'm out hiking, biking, skiing, and yes, riding the horse. I'd rather break than rust.
