My trail horse, Rosie, is 20 and still going strong. She's built like a tank and will go anywhere I ask.

Hubby's trail horse, Harley, is 7.

Our other horse, Mama Horse, is 21 and only does light trail rides and serves as our "extra" horse if one of the kids in the family wants to go riding with us.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.

Scooter is 28 and Hunter is 8. Scooter is much better on the trail than Hunter but Hunter used to be awesome on them as well when he was ridden all the time.

My horse is 4 - he's mainly a show horse but I like to be able to just go on a trail ride every now and then and not have to worry about him jumping out of his skin. :)

Velvet is four, but I was leading customer trail rides all through the woods and on the beach ever day with her when she was 3. Her mom is 27 and still taking customers on trails.

I love the range in age! I am glad to hear those older horsies are getting out there enjoying themselves too!
