Louise Firouz helped save the Caspian from extinction. Before she died at 74 in 2008 she told Reuters that she had ignored doctors orders to stop riding horses. "I'm not too old to ride," she said. "I'm too old to fall off." Borrowed from HorseCentric The DOR fully agrees with this statement. Her doctor has asked her why she keeps riding. She tells him riding is not the problem it is the unexpected unseating that causes problems. She loves riding, it brings her joy. Even at her age she is learning new things like how to pony a horse, riding English, dressage, and the desire to do an endurance is great motivation for her to get into better shape. She plans on riding as long as she can get on a horse. How long do you plan on riding? Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
