Gallop Poll: Ever Acquired an Older Horse?

Have you ever acquired a horse that was 15 years of age or older at the time you bought or adopted it? Please let us know by participating in H&R’s Gallop Poll.

Just about everyone we know seems to own at least one older horse these days; some of these horses aged into seniorhood, others were acquired when they were already in their mid to late teens.

So, we’d like to know: Have you ever bought, rescued, adopted, or been given a horse that was 15 years of age or older at the time you acquired it?

Please complete the poll, then check the results of this survey in the “Saddle Chat” section of our February 2018 issue to see how others responded.
