Friday Fun: A New Definition for the "Century Club"

Studies have shown that those with deep interest in "fun" have healthier, happier lives as they age.  Or at least, that's what I hope the studies show.  Along that line, I discovered a new definition for the "Century Club," offered by the Dressage Foundation, for the "exclusive group of horse and rider pairs who perform a dressage test at a recognized [horse] show when their combined ages total 100 years or more."

An issue of The Chronicle of the Horse, in an article titled "Older, Wiser and Still Having Fun," features 24-year old dressage mount Toblerone and  77-year old rider Donna Donaghy.  Donna is "not done yet" and she plans to keep on riding and showing as long as she can still throw a leg over the back of her horse.
