Re: How Old is Old?
If the horse is very well taken care of, I don't see why not, but the only issue with a horse that age having a lot of show mile and experience, is that it may have hoof/leg issues. If you do a pre purchase exam, I would MOST DEFINITELY xray his legs. II have heard and seen a lot of people make that mistake.
I would say that an 18yr old, if it's not burnt out from competing & healthy/sound, then sure, he sounds great!
