I don't think I have ever heard of a horse with torn pectorals before LOL. I would say a horse over 5 would be good at low-medium dressage (probably doing between entry level to second level). A horse that is 8 would probably doing seond level to third level.

Oh I have. This is only fictonal but my essay is due tomorrow and I completly forgot I did think 8 was an okay age. Its just trying to find therapy options for it which is a bugger lol.

It depends on the skill of the rider, the skill of the horse, the trainability of the horse, and the soundness of the horse.
There are horses at Grand Prix at 8, and there are horses still struggling to get a decent walk, trot and canter at 8 with less than brilliant riders.

So yes, 8 would be a perfectly acceptable age for a horse to be working at medium.
