I'm afraid she and I would be going round and round then.
At our age, I'm 57, much of the elasticity is gone. And puts undue strain on joints and on horse when trying to mount and it takes longer too.
And what in the world does being able to mount from the ground have to do with how safe a rider you are? I've seen people that can mount easily that are the biggest fools out there, and the most dangerous.
I really think she and others are wanting to get rid of the older riders is all this is.
And I'd be seeing a lawyer too, for that matter. This is age discrimination at its finest.
Horses make me a better person.
