I love this guy; he is an inspiration to any older athlete, or really any athlete at any age.

If you recall, after the last Olympic Games, he said he was considering retirement, not because he felt he was getting old, but because his horse was!

I assume he has a new, younger, fitter horse and that this one will keep him at the top of the sport. Hopefully he and his horse make the squad!
