Welcome to the site dedicated to the older horse. The main purpose of this site is to provide pertinent information concerning the older or geriatric horse. Here you can find articles and links to articles concerning geriatric horses. These articles and links have a broad range and should interest horse owners and trainers as well as veterinary practitioners and technicians involved with old horses.
The web-based survey of owners of geriatric horses in New England was concluded earlier this year. You can view a summary of the findings (click here).
As older horses are often slowing down from a performance or working career, their owners often have a long and interesting story of their lives when both horse and owner were younger. We are interested in posting these stories of older horses. If you want to share the story of your older horse, please contact us. We would appreciate if you would also provide photos (old and recent ) of you and your old horse. If you are interested in posting your story and photos, please e-mail them to us.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Lais Costa (
