    Too much work for a 20 year old horse?

    Ask to ride him in a morning, see if he feels any different?

    Too much work for a 20 year old horse?

    Realistically how many hours of work is he actually doing? That's possibly the question that needs asking It may seem out of the normal but 1.5 hours work isn't actually that much ( for example)
