“Donovan “Van” Ketzler, at 89 years old, is possibly the oldest veteran of the U.S. cavalry still riding!
“When he says, I’m finished riding, that’s when I start planning his funeral,” Jeff (his son) says. “That’s his life and has been from a very early age.”
I’ve known a number of people who rode horses well into their 90’s and a couple who made it past 100. Myself, I want to ride until it drop dead in the saddle. And if I can no longer ride, just shoot me and get it over with.
Ride to live, live to ride!
