I have to wonder what you really think an old horse is ;) 8 is NOT old for a horse. (you mentioned in another post that 13 was old, and it's not.)
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!! :)
