even if Duke happened to be 17 as long as he's healthy you can do anything. Some of the best gran prix jumpers are competeing till 19 or so. I had one of the horses at our barn was a gran prix jumper and just retired at 21! Right now we have a 4th level dressage horse that is still giving lessons and he's 31.

Katie, based on what I see he still has his wolf teeth. It would be more accurate if You could show pics of the cups on his bottom teeth but I'm pretty confident that based on the pictures he is in the 18 year old range.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

The tops of his bottom teeth will be a big help. Also take a picture of the last tooth before his bars on top.

The space between his teeth where the bit fits.
