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.

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.
