“Middle aged and older women are the biggest demographic in the horse world,” says Mary Jane Alumbaugh, one of the local Century Club riders. Barbi Breen Gurley, the other Century Club rider, also coaches riders and trains horses. Barbi comments, “I have lots of students who are ladies in their 60’s plus.” These two SLO County ladies came from different perspectives to ride a Century Club ride while inspiring other riders to realize they are not too old to ride a horse AND compete. Sharon Jantzen meets up with two local Dressage riders who recently completed a Century Club ride.
