It is because of us humans that horses are living to be older. In the wild their life span is much shorter. And when they do start to become weaker, they are put to the bottom of the herd in the hierarchy and mother nature ends up taking it's course.
We make them live longer and do things that are stressful and un-natural to them. So I think it is also our duty to recognize when they are deteriorating and suffering, even if they are one of those that try not to show it. We need to let them go for them, not for us.
