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.

Well, I know but my parents think that he is too "old" to learn new things.. ugh, but whatever.. I know he can do it and as soon as I can find a nice flat arena or field to ride in I will... bu can anyone tell his age by these pics??

Thanks for your input foxyroxy!

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.

What exactly do you mean the cup on his bottom teeth like the top of his bottom teeth.. I will be able to get that picture like mon. Or tues. Since that will be when I will have someone at the stables with me to take the picture while I try to get hi mto open his mouth.lol.. but thanks!

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