You are never to old too do the things you love and this 102-year-old woman is the greatest example of that. Grandma Riggs has never ridden a horse although she has always been a horsewoman. Her age didn’t stop her from making her dream come true and when she finally had an opportunity to ride a horse, Grandma Riggs didn’t think twice!
She was determined to ride that horse and she mounted without a problem. This incredible woman went on a ride and this was probably one of the best birthdays presents in her 1,224 months of life. According to her daughter, they’ve asked Grandma Riggs what she wanted for her birthday and she instantly gave them an answer- TO SEE THE HORSES.
Her wish came true and with the assistance of a new friend she slowly put one foot in the stirrup and raised her other over the horse’s back. She said that the horse knew that she was not supposed to be on his back and that’s why it didn’t move.
It needed a little work with the horse to convince him to move, but Grandma Riggs enjoyed to the fullest. She said that she would like to do the same for her next birthday and she challenged Queen Elizabeth to try the same thing. Inspiring video, enjoy!
