I was at the Nutrena Grand Prix Saturday, and one of the horses was 19. She was jumping about 5' 5" and I'm pretty sure she was the one who won. (Happy Z won, I can't remember if she was the 19 year old though)

My horse is 24 and very fit, so we jump. He never jumped when he was younger so his knees and joints are in very good condition.

You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

I moved away when my boy was 19, & we were doing 3'9" courses no problem. He's 23 now & is mostly just used as a lower-level school pony, but when I go home for visits, he still has no problem at 3ft. We used to have a school horse whose owner decided to retire him at age 30, but I jumped him 3ft 2 weeks before he left. He loved his job, & I have no doubt that he would have had years left of jumping in him if his owner hadn't decided to move up north & take him with her. It really does just depend on the individual horse's health & quality of life.

Go ahead. I'm sure it will be okay to jump. My 14.2hh mare, Stoeka, is 25 years old and is still jumping 80-90cm.

The horse I'm currently training and keeping in shape is 18 and she's just learning. My mom's horse is... 20 or 21 soon and he learned how to jump at 18 too. He loves jumping <3
