A 72-year-old Waterford woman and her 29-year-old horse have been inducted into a national club that honors senior horseback riders.
Gloria Crawford and her horse, a Morgan breed named Equinox Ebony Knight, will join 430 other riders across the nation as members of the The Dressage Foundation’s Century Club. To become a member, the ages of the rider and their horse must total 100-years or more and they must compete in a dressage test. Dressage is a specific type of horseback riding competition in which the rider performs a set of predetermined maneuvers.
Crawford, a retired legal secretary, has been in love with horses ever since she was a child, she said. But it wasn’t until the age of 52 that she was able to carry out the lifelong dream of owning one.
