like limping, head bobbing, cranky tail swishing, heavy breathing with a long recoop. Just because a horse is a senior horse, doesn't mean it doesn't like to have some use. Light riding in the arena, carting little ones around on a short trail ride, or you are probably good for its body and mind, as long as there are not severe health issues, or lameness issues. I had one senor go to 38 yrs old, and he liked the little ones to ride him in the arena. He almost forced them to.
