Proving that you’re never too old to ride, compete and excel is Johan Iversen, a 69-year-old who won the Danish National Three-Day-Event Championship this past June.

And what’s more – he did it riding Ocean, a horse whom he bred and developed himself.

The Event Riders Association reports that Iversen impressed both the spectators and judges with his dressage performance, and according to the Danish website Heste Nettet he also went well across country.

 With only two rails down in the showjumping he secured the victory.

  1. That horse is beautiful. I love the action shot of him jumping.

    The post is also inspiring. That Iversen not only is training and developing his horses, but that he rode one competively and won a THREE day title is amazing.

  2. Hi Jolynna,
    Iversen is,indeed, amazing. One can certainly tell he loves his horse. I’m hoping to write more about him, or at least post some photos from his farm in Denmark.
