Proper management can prove the golden rule to ensuring your aging horse remains happy and comfortable into his golden years. Keeping a horse comfortable into their senior years requires an attentive caretaker backed by a knowledgeable team.

It is important to seek the input from your veterinarian and farrier to help maintain the health of an elderly equine and to spot conditions that will need special treatment sooner rather than later. Recognizing changes and not just dismissing them as "old age setting in" is a large part of the responsibility assumed when taking care of the senior horse.
