Do you mean to say that the Lurkers are Bogbashing in e-mail?

I might become one just for that!

Or that, among those who lurk, there exist subtle, wry wits.

Lol, you are a hoot.

Seriously for a moment, do you know of any programs that include the
elderly in any equine activities?  Down south I visited several horse
communities where people owned their own homes and could stay on whether
or not they still had horses, but haven't come across any such places in
the north.

We have some senior citizens who visit here from the local center and
eventually, with more training, plan on doing some carriage driving with
them, but this is small potatoes compared to our future plans.  We are
going to have senior housing on an equestrian community and are always
looking for more models.

we don't have any organized seniors programs.  Ours is the age where
every hour we've spent with a kid and horse in the past is comming
back to us threefold as they now have kids of their own and include us
in nieghborhood horsey things.

Can't help you on this. I've never seen a four up of seniors pulling a
carriage.

Oh Rose!  What a capital idea!!!

Most of those seniors don't get enough exercise anyway and that makes their
arthritis and other woes get worse.  Any with diabetes will be bound to lose
weight and be healthier in the long run.  Not to mention the effect weight
bearing exercise has on the progress of osteoporosis.  No dowager's humps on our
seniors!

Do you think it would be too cruel to use a check rein on them so they keep
their heads up?

I'd lunge 'em first, though, to warm up their muscles and loosen their
backs.

My mother just mentioned that she was looking for a new exercise regimen
for her and Dad. I wonder if there's some way to retrofit my friend's
old Meadowbrook for the two of them, and where I'd get the harness...

Well now. you really got o;d rose e***d with the possibility of horsey events

This is a good thing, and the way I've seen it work in several cases.
What we are planning to do is provide the opportunity to live in
proximity to horses for those folks who didn't have children, had
children who didn't inherit the love for horses, or who didn't stay
local, etc.... or even simply the older elderly, who may have no
interest/ability in riding or driving, but might like to look out the
window and see (and smell) :) horses and may want to touch a soft nose
now and then.  Affordable senior housing combined in an equestrian
community.  Some of the places I visited in the south fit the bill
(Ocala Downs, Rose Hill on H.H., etc.) but were quite pricey, although I
did see a couple more reasonably priced, or with mixed pricing, with
"aging in place" residences in Gainsville.

(Not that you are elderly - you may have given yourself the descriptions
you have and be younger than me!  There will be a teeth checking tent at
the next bogbash.)

ROTFL.  <Will somebody smack her?>  Although I bet the training to avoid
spooky behavior would be quick and easy.  One could carry nitro glycerin
treats.  I'm so glad you came out of lurkdom!
