As long as a horse is sound to be ridden, you can teach them to neck rein.

What GamingGrrrl said!

I taught my mare to neck rein when she was 24 and, while it may have taken her longer to "get" than a younger horse, she does it as well as a horse who's been doing it all his/her life.

Probably not much point in teaching stuff like that once a horse is in it's 30's

Rein is the spelling you want.

Horses can be taught at any age, they don't become incapable of learning as they age.

Oh Palomine, once they get older they might deserve to reign!
