Oldest horse I've ever ridden is our 21 year old gelding Bud.

Two years ago my sister and I rode my mom's 29yr old mare for the summer. We just did short rides, she was completely sound to lope and stuff though. :)

Before that, I learned on my mom's gelding who was 26 when I started and 30 When he was retired. He passed away at the age of 34 when he broke his hind leg. :(

You guys will love this.....I knew a gal with a 42 year old gelding. She used him for her son's Gymkhana horse. He took good care of two-year-old Carter, and she was nice enough to let me walk around on him. I didn't go any faster than a walk though. I was too scared I'd lame him up. He died last year at the age of 43, of colic.

My first pony was a little welsh pony given to me at 31. Being our first pony my sister, cousin and I took turns riding her almost every day. She was a sprightly little thing. She was put down when she broke her hip later on in the same year I got her.

The oldest horse I ever rode was a 16hh paint gelding that had a sway back that would make the Niagara River look like a shallow ditch. He was 32 and still going strong. At 35, he coliced and died. He was the best old boy you could ever ask for.

Oldest horse i've ever ridden. Was the 30 soemthing year old mare who just had her last foal in march. She is sound at all gaits and has impeccable endurance. Her gaits are a little rough though lol especially her lope! The colt has taken alot out of her so we are porbably going to wean early and fatten her up real good.

There is a horse at the pasture with an unknown age but she is supposedly in her 40s i've never ridden her but a few people have. She seems to have pretty bad arthritis and her bag foot twists when she walks making her gaits funny and she never seems to go past a trot, and she never stays in a trot for long, maybe a few strides at the most.

My sisters horse, Ressie, died at 38 and we rode him a few weeks before he passed. If you never looked in his mouth, you would have never guessed him to be over 15. He didn't have a tooth left when he passed.
