    Have to say that was actually one of my best riding days of my life.
    Please keep helping him get to ride! It sounds like it's really a priceless thing for him and it would be terrible for him to miss out. Hope your Mom will continue too!

    When my husband's uncle was 87 years old, he dropped by to see us while I was riding the TWH that I had back then. He said that he loved gaited horses and wanted to ride. We pushed, pulled, and got him up on the horse. He didn't just walk around. He put her into a nice quick rack and then he cantered around the yard a little bit. After about 15 minutes of what was obviously a great time, he came over and asked me to help him get down. He said, "If I fall off and break something, everybody is going to say, 'That old fool should have known better.'" He lived to be 100.

    I think that being willing to do fun stuff kept him going. I am glad you got your dad to ride.

    Painted Horse - check into a therapeutic equestrian association in your area, they are n't just for kids. They provide side walkers and there are portable oxygen tanks he can carry over his shoulder like a purse. Might do him some good!

    Roan rider-- that would be excellent!. Well behaved horses can be very therapeutic to anyone.

    Good for you and your dad! Riding is like breathing in oxygen. Can't get enough of it! And the joy and closeness it brings for the two of you is unmatched.
