Of course, taken into account of their condition.
I had a Appaloosa that was 24 years old and in great condition after some TLC ( we got him from a rescue ). He was a clown horse at the Calgary Stampede and a pack horse back in "the day".
I re-trained him at 24 years old to be ridden english, light jumping, western, at 25 years old he won his first ribbons in Barrel Racing and Pole Bending at a local fair! I only took him to two small shows just for fun. Many people would come up to me and ask about him, his age, ect, they wouldn't believe me! He was a hoot to ride. We even went for over night trail riding/camping in the mountains in BC. He lived to be 34.
