I don't think age has anything to do wtih it - personally. My fellow is 22 and we are jumping 2'11 - 3'3" and eventing at the Novice Level.
I think it has to do with condition, nutrition, and body health - aka joints, tendons, etc, etc.
I say, get a full vet exam done, with xrays - so that you can know for sure exactly what the areas of concern are on the fellow, and then you can take needed steps to treat/care/target - to ensure longevity, happiness and health.
All the best! I look forward to seeing piccies!
