Elaine, Age 70
Was so happy to find this site ! I just turned 70 on April 24th and am loving it…..I am currently recovering, at my daughter’s home, from a breast reduction surgery ! Wish I hadn’t waited so long for one, but am so happy that I finally did it !
I am a life-long equestrian; started riding when I was in Grade 5 and have continued on since then, riding and training and loving every minute of it. I am lucky to have a husband who fully understands my “affliction” as I call it and we’ve owned numerous horses over the years. Still mucking out; haying; and riding and training 5 days/week…..
Longevity reigns in my family and my Dad, who is 93 this July, is “still hanging in there”, as are 4 others of my Dad’s siblings….his older sister passed away last year at the ripe old age of 99….and I’m striving for that too !
I still do Pilates; lift weights; ride, and paint. I just love life, and think that is part of our longevity in the family too … I always find it kind of funny when younger equestrians call me “an inspiration”….I think….”what the heck are they talking about”? hahahahaha…..
I found this site in a book that my daughter bought me for my birthday, and will certainly be visiting often…..carry on folks!
