My TB is 15(well technically will be 15 on june 8th) and has no signs of slowing down anytime soon. I don't think 12 is old at all. I have an arab/qh who is in his late 30's to early 40's so I kinda think they should all live that long lol. I actually think my TB would be good at barrel racing. When she is being a brat I go around the arena doing small circles every which way, I only do it at the trot but she turns very well for a TB

Also, joint issues will depend on how hard the horse was raced, mine was raced fairly lightly and has never been lame in the 2 years i've had her
