ETA: My instructor also has a 35 year old grey arabian stallion that he has had and trained since he was 6. He used to trail ride and do gymkhanas, nut now he's been retired for 3 years...
I hate they deserted her like that but sounds like she's in a wonderful place! There's truely nothing better than riding an arabian!
Wow arabs can do amazing things and live forever! Its impresive he's 35 and was riding until he was 33!
