The expected life span of a horse is approximately twenty to thirty years. This number has increased dramatically over the years; horses were once considered old at 13 years. Interesting fact: The Guinness Book of Records lists a horse named Old Billy that was born in 1760 and lived to the incredible age of 62.
Horses typically live between twenty and thirty years. Ponies tend to be hardier than horses, and are more likely to reach the thirty year mark. Of course, there are a number of factors that can lead to a decreased life span. Competition horses are more susceptible to life-threatening injury. Supplements and a good diet can increase your horse’s chance at a long life. A horse is considered “mature” around the 12-14 year mark, and horses are typically retired around the 20 year mark. However, there are many cases of horses successfully competing well past their prime.
Domesticated horses live 20 – 30 years; however, wild horses usually live only about 19 – 20 years now.
The expected life of a horse is generally 20 to 30 years. The oldest horse on record lived to be 62 and the record for oldest horse to give birth was 42.
