No matter your age, if a horse steps on your abdomen, your in trouble. Since when is someone in their 60's considered elderly? An 85 y/o friend recently gave up riding. I'm in my 50's (disabled), and I still enjoy horseback riding. Accidents happen.

Since when is there an age limit on horseback riding? In that situation, age is not the issue. A "young hot chick" could have the same thing happen. Bees and horses are an unpredictable combination.

Old women should stay home and bake pies and stuff. They don't belong in the woods. Only young, hot chicks should be in the woods. They sure look good dancing around a campfire at night.

5 old women riding horses on mountain trails is a guaranteed recipe for disaster. Guess she'll be too sore to play a Halloween Witch this year.

rough rider...once you get to be 65 or older if you fall down, maybe you're too old to be going around and should get moved to a nursing home..jerk

Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office reported the horse was spooked by a swarm of bees, caused by one of the animal stepping on a bee's nest. Making it worse, the horse inadvertently stepped on the victim's abdomen.

She fell off, huh? Well, maybe at her age she should take up another, safer outdoor activity such as knitting in the woods.
