At my old barn, they had the old timer lesson horses. All of them were in great shape. They'd do beginner lessons and help out in the summer camp (of course getting the best treatment). The Barn Owner treated them like gold, and in the warmer months, would turn them out in their "trail" part and just let them be free little horses.

There was Dusty, Winnie, Cocoa, Patches. All of them were just the best ponies. I learned so much for all of them.

This year they have passed on I was so upset to hear about it. I don't know the ages of Winnie, Cocoa, or Patches, but Dusty was in his 40's!
Dusty was such a riot, always knew when he could take advantage of his rider. (he used to do that with me when I was younger)
I miss them all dearly, but I know they have moved on to lush green pastures and are enjoying their "retirement".

Aww. :(
Yeah, @ my barn we have some old horses...one is like 26, he does trails usually. But he's retiring soon, he's in great shape, though! They also do a lot of beginner work...mostly for the summer camp.
I'm sorry about your friend's pony, K_T. :( That's a shame...but 31? She lived pretty long!

Ride more, worry less.

Here is my old man.. Cheno is 29 and has been blind for a few years now due to ERU(moonblindness). I bought him when he was 12.

Bless you! Another person who realizes how special an older horse is. I lost my 38yr old Buckskin gelding last June 15th. At 30yrs old we were pushing cattle, at 31 we were in a local drill team, at 32 we ran the Montana state flag at the Senior Pro Rodeo finals for a week in Reno. The rest of the time, the grandchildren rode him. The secret to owning An older horse,or any animal, is to FEED them properly, keep them comfortable at all times, and love the heck out of them.
