Senior Horse Nutrition
A horse in its teens may typically be thought of as "old", but the reality is that the genetics of the individual, plus how it was cared for during its life, will dictate when the nutritional needs begin to shift from that of an adult mature horse to that of a geriatric horse. That point in life varies among horses and is a gradual process that doesn't happen overnight.
It is estimated that there are over 700,000 senior horses living in the United States today. There was a "horse baby boom" in the mid-to-late 1970s, making 9-11% of the total horse population today older horses. Many of these horses are well into their 20s or 30s, and still live very healthy, active lives due to better care and feeding.
