Don't underestimate these "old" horses. They have a lot of very good years left in them and are perfect mounts if they do the job you want to do with them.
I'd much rather be riding an "old" horse than a green broke horse. Much rather be showing one too as they are seasoned and know the ropes.
Anyway, whatever horse you end up with, have fun!! :)
Well, those ages are old for me, because my second horse died of navicular at the age of 11, and then we had to put one of my 14 year old horses down. So, I think the way I do because of my bad experiences.
And, I talked to my trainer, and he has agreed to help me get both of them trained. I will start with High Five, and my trainer will be starting Trigger(because he is still a little green. We have to break him out first).
