Riding Program for Seniors

Would it be possible to reduce the number of required hours in the horseback riding program for seniors? If I ride my new horse 5 times a week, for an hour at a time, I will accumulate 260 hours a year. That means it will take me almost 20 years to accumulate 5,000 hours. While I would like to think I will still be riding at 80 years old, and my mare will still be going at 25 years old, that might not be completely realistic. Just a thought for us "older" equestrians.
