“TRIGGER’S 32 THIS YEAR!
Doesn’t he look great?” my client proclaims. “He does seem to be slowing down just a little bit though— especially on long trail rides. Sometimes he even seems a little sore. What can I do to keep him going?”
“Wow,” I think. “Age 32 and slowing down? I remember when we thought 20 was old. Now my clients want to know how to keep a 30-year-old horse moving down the trail.”
With advances in equine medical care, your horse has a much better chance of leading a happy and productive life well into his third (or even fourth) decade than his predecessors did 20 years ago. That’s right: 30 really is the new 20.
