My riding instructors 35(the vet guesses probably older) paint mare who's still alive and kicking, as well as her 32 year old Tennessee Walking horse mare who died 3 years ago.

Equestrian, computer person, photographer, graphic designer...
I know who I am, who are you?

I'm thrilled to hear about TB's being well into their 20's and early 30's and still strong and healthy! That's assuring!

21 and still counting :) My guys is 21 years old, an OTTB and the love of my life :)

This picture was just taken yesterday. He's still rockin' the house!

Umm our old mare, Brandy, I think she's 25-ish years old, but the vet says that with her teeth she could live another 20 years! lol

A little Welsh pony called Ralph. He is now 37 and still giving lessons to small children. :) I go and visit him every now and again.

Barney was 24 (?) the last time I rode him. He was sold to a girl when he was 30 and at a local show we saw them and he threw her off! Cheeky ol' boy :P

My mare is 30, I hopped on her once last year, but she's pretty unsafe due to arthritis/injury so she's completely retired from all riding (including kiddy pony rides).

My advisor in college had a client with a 50 year old horse that was still going strong. I believe the oldest documented horse was like 62?
