Navicular is no longer the death sentence it used to be.
My now retired 27 year old competed until his late teens. A combination of things kept him sound - consistent, moderate work on very good footing, corrective shoeing and a mix of supplements complimented by adequan and legend.
I think the most important (and most frequently overlooked component) is the footing. I always rode him right after the arena was drug. Made sure that I only showed at facilities where the footing was good. I know that added to the length of his career.
