R.O. Grand Sultan "Rio" won the Tevis at the age of 7, so one must presume he 
had done some other rides before that, though I just don't remember them.  I 
would have thought that 7 was a bit young for asking a horse to put out such 
an effort, but Becky knew her horse and was confident of his capabilities.  
And his lifetime record speaks for itself.  He's simply a phenomenal horse.  
They don't make too many like him.  And they don't make too many like Becky, 
either, although I think there are more great riders than there are great 
horses.  Just my opinion.
