I'm with Super Nova on this one. I have a barn mate who has a 12 year old jumper that is constantly lame and an all around unhealthy horse (even with thousands of dollars in vet bills and treatments), and then i have another barn mate friend of mine whom has a 27 year old eventer that she STILL events on. He's tough, strong, fit, and VERY well kept. It's all in the horse and his/her conditioning and genetics. To hell with what his teeth say... what does HE say about jumping?!
Life seems mighty precious when there's less of it to waste.
