    When is it that one becomes too old to start showing/eventing or pony club can someone shed some light on this please, thanks...
     
  2. I am not sure on the age the EFA etc cut you off but I am sure it wouldn't be until somebodys 60's or something I expect... pony club is 25 but adult rider's club of course would be much older.

    As Merrylegs said in her post above, the maximum age for Pony Club is 25 years old. Adult Riders Clubs and EFA have no maximum age as far as I am aware. How old are your nieces/nephews?

    I think Rumble1979 did her first Adult Riding ODE (and won) when she was 60 (oh please I hope I didn't get that wrong or she will hit me!)
    We have another member of Wanneroo Adult Riding who is 'well' over 60 and he has just started out!
     
  9. My instructor who is now in his late 80's told me that they wouldn't let him compete in events any more because he was too old and they wouldn't insure him (and that was when he was in his late 70's) but although he couldn't jump now he still rides twice a week without fail, three times if his wife will let him get away with it!
