    Holds hand up to getting on in years.................

    Not so keen on fast any more though; I prefer to momble about with the odd canter. And certainly never downhill if I can help it!

    I am getting on in years and my share is too - and no longer up to speed - so I desert her once a week and hack from an RS to get a good canter.

    Wrong side of 50 and I love a blast! I also love speed games and races, loads of fun.

    I'm only 18, but my Mum is 50 this year and she goes a bit fast for me sometimes!! We both love a good gallop through the stubble fields .

    Physical age has nothing to do with it, its mental age that counts. Well past 50 now but still feel 18 whilst riding. Afterwards can be a bit different though!

    Im 27 and love going for a blast... so fast that tears stream down your face ! My mate at my yard (45ish) has only been riding 4 years and shes getting to the point now where shes loving it as much as me.

    couldnt ever imagine not doing it...

    Yep, I'm 36 and love going fast. We have really rubbish canters though by us, so really going to work on Bas's loading this year so I can do some sponsored rides, go to the beach, Badminton etc. I laugh my head off when we're galloping - I can't help it - I just love it!!
