The aging of horses in your care is inevitable and, in fact, you may prefer to work with older horses to take advantage of their experience and patience in teaching young riders. But what can your expect of an older horse? Does he have special needs? Is he capable of carrying a workload, or should he be allowed to retire? How do you keep him healthy and happy?
Jessica Jahiel answers these questions and more, covering such vital topics as proper feeding, general care, and the importance of regular exercise and companionship, all of which result in an excellent quality-of-life for your older horse. With her practical, expert advise, your aging horse will remain your trusty, trusting steed for years to come.
