FACTS ABOUT SENIOR HORSES

As our name specifies, the residents of our farm are primarily retired horses 20 years of age or older, many with chronic health issues. We also have some horses younger than 20 who were rescued from abusive or neglectful situations.  If this is the first time you have been around “senior” horses, you may notice some differences from the other horses you may be used to seeing, such as at horse shows or riding stables. This handout provides information about our residents to help make your visit to Ryerss more interesting and enjoyable.
