Um... lets see. She was 25 & was just off the race track, no joke. She was a handful. She later passed away that year.

When I was little and didn't know better I rode a poor 32 yr old schooling horse.... He was so overworked! Poor guy I think I jumped him around 3 feet, too

But I rode a very spirited 22 year old mare the a few years ago and she could run!

I rode one of my friend's horses who is 29.
38?! That's insane for a horse! Although, I've heard of horses living into their 50s..

My friend owned a 45 year old pony that I rode once :P. He was an awesome little guy, tons of attitude - if he took offense to the farrier he could throw the him into the wall. It was downright impressive.

I also used to trail ride a wonderful 33 year old arabian gelding. He could go w/t/c and would have gone all day if you would let him.

There was also the 30 year old ex pony club lesson pony. He was a full welsh, and quite the show pony back in the day. He gradually became just a beginner pony, but still liked to go out for a rip... I remember galloping him once and wondering why it felt like he was about to fall over, turns out he was bucking the whole way :P. He was put down just over a year ago due to colic at 35.
