    Just do her the favor of REALLY watching her move before and after a workout for any signs of pain. ALSO, use long warmups and long cooldowns to keep her comfortable. I rode "Corporal" the year he died at 27yo. (1982-2009, RIP)

    Thanks again guys, Corporal thanks for the tip! My BO actually just texted me today and said that my old girl plowed through about 4 fences that were brand new as of today to go into her stall an hour earlier than she does. Maybe that's her method of keeping fit when she's old: pile driving through the fences!

    Well we didn't retire our mare until she was 27 and my little brother sometimes rode when he first started and she had plenty of go left
